The presence of alkylphenol polyethoxylates (APEO) in the environment is solely a consequence of anthropogenic activities. These polyethoxylated compounds are biodegraded by losing ethoxy groups and subsequently generate more persistent and lipophilic alkylphenols compounds (APs), such as nonylphenols (NPs) and octylphenols (OPs), under aerobic and...

The dairy industry produce large quantities of whey which is a byproduct causing a pollution once rejected in the environment without treatment. Therefore this study aims to treat the mixture of acid and sweet whey by coupling two processes. The primary physicochemical treatment of sweet and acid whey diluted to ¼, realized by coagulation-flocculat...
