Qualifier:
no guideline required
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of measurement:
other: Influent and effluent concentrations at waste water treatment plant.

other: WWTP influent and effluent.

Test material

Reference
Name:
Unnamed
Type:
Constituent
Details on test material:
Veratrol
1,2-dimethoxybenzene

Study design

Details on sampling:
One month flow proportional composite samples of influent and effluent were collected from the Göteborg Regional Sewage Works, which serves a domestic population of around 550,000 people and most of the industrial waste waters in the Göteborg region.

Results and discussion

Concentration
Country:
Sweden
Location:
Göteborg Regional Sewage Works
Substance or metabolite:
substance
Remarks:
measured in WWTP influent
Conc.:
1 µg/L
Remarks on result:
other: Substance not detected in WWTP effluent
Details on results:
Since procedural recoveries are not reported, the measured concentrations may be estimates only.
The limit of detection for Veratrole is not reported.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The paper does not include sufficient experimental detail (e.g. procedural recoveries, limits of detection) to allow the results to be used with confidence for assessing removal of Veratrole in waste water treatment plants.
