Algal Process Affords Sustainable Wastewater Treatment And Disinfection

Publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) are required to reduce the pollutants in urban wastewaters to statutory levels prior to discharging the treated wastewater into natural water bodies. To fulfill this mandate, POTWs have been utilizing a sequence of treatment processes, each designed to remove a specific pollutant in the wastewater.
