Video: Treating wastewater: how to remove microcontaminants?

Have you ever seen wastewater from a factory? This usually looks very clean, thanks to wastewater treatment. Yet it may still contain many traces of drugs, pesticides, or cleaning agents. These so-called microcontaminants end up in rivers and cause damage to the environment. In the lab, Sara Feijoo Moreira and her colleagues at KU Leuven developed a method that uses electrochemistry to remove these micropollutants from wastewater.


The video was recorded in collaboration with Science Figured Out.
