Article
This work aims at evaluating the fate of microplastics (MPs) along Fenton oxidation. For such goal, realistic MPs (150-250 μm) of five representative polymer types (PET, PE, PVC, PP and EPS) were obtained from commercial plastic products by cryogenic milling. Experiments (7.5 h) were performed under relatively severe operating conditions: T = 80 °C...
Article
This study presents an overview on the application of catalytic hydrodehalogenation (HDH) as a potential polishing step for organohalogenated micropollutants removal during drinking water treatment. Stringent regulations for drinking water quality require the development of innovative processes to increase the efficiency of conventional Drinking Wa...
Article
Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) is one of the most used BFRs, being characterized by a strong persistence and leading to negative effects on both the environment and human health. The aim of this work is to evaluate the feasibility of aqueous-phase catalytic hydrodehalogenation (HDH) for the fast and environmentally-friendly degradation of the bromin...
Article
This work aims at evaluating the role of nature, size, age, and natural organic matter (NOM) fouling of realistic microplastics (MPs) on the adsorption of two persistent micropollutants (diclofenac (DCF) and metronidazole (MNZ)). For such goal, four representative polymer types (polystyrene (PS), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polypropylene (PP)...
Article
This work aims to develop highly stable iron oxide foams for the continuous Catalytic Wet Peroxide Oxidation (CWPO) of micropollutants in a structured fixed-bed reactor. Homogeneity and adhesion of the active phase were achieved by adjusting the preparation methodology. Three structured catalysts based on Al2O3, SiC and ZrO2 foams were obtained wit...
Article
This work is focused on the development of a Pd-based catalytic membrane reactor (Pd/CMR) for its application in continuous flow hydrodechlorination (HDC) of chlorinated micropollutants. A cylindrical inert porous alumina membrane was decorated on the outer with well-dispersed Pd nanoparticles (0.2% wt.). The Pd/CMR was fully characterized by diffe...
Article
Adsorption represents the most plausible technology for micropollutants removal from water nowadays. Nevertheless, the regeneration of the saturated carbon materials is still an important challenge, being these solids in practice commonly disposed. This work aims at overcoming this issue by using innovative carbon-encapsulated iron nanoparticles (C...
Article
This work aims to analyse the effectiveness of catalytic hydrodechlorination (HDC) for the degradation of the neonicotinoid pesticides listed in the EU Watch List (Decision 2018/840): acetamiprid (ACT), imidacloprid (IMD), clothianidin (CLT), thiacloprid (THC) and thiamethoxam (THM). With the exception of THC, all neonicotinoid pesticides (1000 μg...

The development of cost-efficient and environmentally friendly technologies for the removal of cyanotoxins from water is crucial, given the increasingly frequent appearance of toxic cyanobacterial blooms. In this work, the application of catalytic wet peroxide oxidation (CWPO) promoted by natural magnetite for the removal of the highly toxic cyanot...
Article
This work aims to evaluate the intensification of CWPO by the application of electro-magnetic induction heating (MIH) using an inexpensive magnetite mineral as catalyst. Experiments were carried out at pH0 = 5 using the persistent antibiotic sulfamethoxazole (SMX) as target pollutant (5 mgL⁻¹) and the stoichiometric H2O2 dose (25 mgL⁻¹). The effect...
Article
The occurrence of harmful cyanobacterial blooms has unabated increased over the last few decades, posing a significant risk for public health. In this work, we investigate the feasibility of catalytic wet peroxide oxidation (CWPO) promoted by modified natural magnetite (Fe3O4-R400/H2O2), as an inexpensive, simple-operation and environmentally-frien...
Article
The abatement of dissolved organochlorinated pharmaceuticals from water by catalytic hydrodechlorination has been scarcely studied so far, but it represents a promising process for such goal. This work aims to evaluate the feasibility of this system for the removal of chlorpromazine, one of the most used pharmaceuticals for mental disorders treatme...
Article
The presence of micropollutants in fresh waters represents an important challenge for drinking water treatment plants (DWTPs). In particular, the chlorinated ones are especially harmful given their high toxicity and strong bioaccumulation potential. The aim of this work is to evaluate the feasibility of catalytic hydrodechlorination (HDC) for the r...
Article
Aqueous-phase catalytic hydrodechlorination (HDC) has been scarcely explored in the literature for the removal of chlorinated micropollutants. The aim of this work is to prove the feasibility of this technology for the fast and environmentally-friendly degradation of such kind of compounds. Diclofenac (DCF), a highly consumed anti-inflammatory drug...
