AUTHOR/S: E. Aries (Tata Steel) D. Mirabile (CSM) W. Huang (UFSD)

ABSTRACT

The main objectives of ECOWATER are:• to reduce discharges of priority substances and priority hazardous substances (PS and PHS) in coke oven effluents in order to meet the objectives of the EU Water Framework Directive, • to characterize the behavior of PS and PHS in the coke oven wastewater treatment process, • to study the chemical and ecological impact of coke oven effluents upon the quality of local river basins, • to enhance the efficiency of biological effluent treatment plants through better understanding of the sludge treatment characteristics using novel molecular biology approaches, • to investigate the use of advanced photo-oxidation, filtration and adsorption techniques for the abatement of PS and PHS in coke oven effluents.
