Globally, a very huge amount of pharmaceuticals are distributed and consumed per year. Substance such as pharmaceuticals and illicit drugs are usually referred as organic micropollutants. Conventional wastewater treatment is not an effective option for removal of micropollutants. Unlike conventional treatment methods, advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) are recognized tools to remove micropollutants.

In that account, I focus my study on “Removal, Degradation, Transformation of Organic Micropollutants in Advanced Wastewater Treatment (RDTOMA)” focusing on ozonation. I am currently working on the EU INTERREG project “CW Pharma” as a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Kai Bester.
