EHP – Evaluating Nanoparticle Breakthrough during Drinking Water Treatment

"Although a majority of aggregated or stable NPs [nanoparticles] were removed by simulated conventional and advanced treatment, NP metals were detectable in finished water. As environmental NP concentrations increase, we need to consider NPs as emerging drinking water contaminants, and determine appropriate drinking water treatment processes to fully remove NPs in an effort to reduce their potential harmful health outcomes."
