    Abstract: Microplastics have been ubiquitously in the environment, and a large number of microplastics have entered wastewater treatment plants, and their effects on activated sludge denitrification are rarely reported. Polypropylene (PP) microplastics were selected as the research object for denitrification research. Herein, we set different concentrations ... Show More

    Abstract: Organochlorine compounds (OCCs) are part of molecules that form the complex nature of crude oil. They bioaccumulate in animals and humans to concentrations with the potential to cause non-cancer and cancer-related diseases. OCCs undergo biodegradation to form more toxic complexes in the environmental media. Hence, it is essential to determine the c... Show More
