Summary
"Personal care items, such as cosmetics, medicines and household products, release a significant amount of potentially harmful substances into the environment. Tracking the sources of these toxic chemicals and their fate in the environment is therefore of prime concern for water and waste treatment authorities and for the manufacturers of such products. This first comprehensive treatment of the topic systematically covers the most important classes of toxic chemicals from personal care compounds, from cosmetics to plastics additives to pharmaceuticals. For each substance, data on toxicity and bioaccumulation in various ecosystems is given." "Following an introduction to sewage treatment plant functions, the book goes on to look at environmental studies and the appropriate analytical chemistry methods. The whole is rounded off by a discussion of strategies in wastewater treatment to control and remove these substances."--BOOK JACKET
