Scientific seminar «Remediation of TNT-contaminated water»
29 April at 15:00 MSK
In the process of demilitarization of explosives, army ammunition plants generate a waste stream known as pink water. The principal component of the wastewater is the nitro-aromatic compound 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT). The discharge of pink water to the environment has been prohibited in many countries because of the toxicity of the compound and its metabolites to various ecological receptors. The seminar covers the most common methods and approaches for the removal of TNT from the contaminated water.
