REPORT DESCRIPTION:

This study evaluated existing quantitative structure property relationship (QSPR) techniques for predicting the key wastewater treatment processes "sludge sorption" and "activated-sludge biological and chlorine oxidation transformation". QSPR techniques are potentially powerful tools that utilities can use to screen the fate of TOrCs during wastewater treatment processes and to assess TOrC risk exposures. A comprehensive literature review of existing biodegradation, sorption, and chlorine oxidation QSPRs was performed and used to assess the applicability of existing QSPRs for wastewater treatment systems. Results of this project will be used as input to WERF project, Trace Organic Compounds Removal during Wastewater Treatment (CEC4R08) which will provide reliable mass balance modeling tools that describe and predict removal efficiencies for a wide range of TOrCs.
