Degradation of mecoprop in polluted landfill leachate and waste water in a moving bed biofilm reactor.


PMID 28544990

Abstract

Mecoprop is a common pollutant in effluent-, storm- and groundwater as well as in leachates from derelict dumpsites. Thus, bioremediation approaches may be considered. We conducted batch experiments with moving bed biofilm (MBBR)-carriers to understand the degradation of mecoprop. As a model, the carriers were incubated in effluent from a conventional wastewater treatment plant which was spiked to 10, 50 and 100 μg L
