Abstract
Summarization: The occurrence of emerging organic contaminants (EOCs)in wastewaters and the inability of the conventional wastewater treatments plants to deal with them have been pointed out several times over the last few years. As a result, remnants of those compounds released into the aquatic environment present a potential risk for public health. Constructed wetlands (CWs)have been proposed as environmentally friendly, low-cost alternative systems with satisfactory results for different types of contaminants. This study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of a CW system, planted with the halophyte Juncus acutus, to eliminate bisphenol A (BPA)and two antibiotics...
