Contamination of Water, Health Risk Assessment and Treatment Strategies, 2021, Pages 99-107
Pesticides have the potential to contaminate groundwater resources and have become a serious concern worldwide. In this chapter, we have discussed the mechanism of pesticide pollution along with its trajectory from the land surface into aquifers. Additionally, the harmful effects of pesticides on human health and promising remedies for reducing pesticide pollution have also been discussed.
Contamination of Water, Health Risk Assessment and Treatment Strategies, 2021, Pages 49-64
This chapter highlights important implications of the field such as permissible limits of heavy metals in water systems, major sources of aquatic heavy metal pollution, impact of heavy metal contamination on aquatic life, human health and environment, loss of resources in form of heavy metals, prominent strategies adopted to tackle the problem, recent advancement in treatment technologies for heavy metal contaminated wastewater, and future aspects.
Contamination of Water: Chapter 18 - Pharmaceuticals and personal care products: occurrence, detection, risk, and removal technologies in aquatic environment
Contamination of Water, Health Risk Assessment and Treatment Strategies, 2021, Pages 265-284
This chapter examines how PPCPs are often termed as micropollutants or trace organics, as these compounds are present in the µg/L range in the environment. PPCPs may pose a serious threat to aquatic life, having acute and chronic toxicity responses. As a result, there is a need for evolving technologies to detect, identify, and remediate compounds from these micropollutants.
Held in partnership with the University of Johannesburg, this Elsevier webinar discusses the SDGs and how researchers can incorporate them into their work.
