Remoção de compostos farmacêuticos de águas residuais por biossorventes de baixo custo

  • Mestrado em Biotecnologia, 2017


In the present dissertation the biosorption capacity of different low cost biosorbents, namely coffee grounds, egg shells, cork residues and pine bark, was evaluated for the removal of pharmaceutical compounds from wastewater. The psychoactive drug fluoxetine was the target compound of this study. The specific objectives of this work were the study of the kinetics and equilibrium, adsorption of fluoxetine and the study of the influence of the solution pH on the adsorption in batch system. The removal of fluoxetine in open system was also investigated. The surface of the biosorbents was charact ...
