Abstract

Abstract Polar organic pollutants in textile wastewaters may give rise to problems in biological wastewater treatment. For the most part they are non-biodegradable, and their elimination is incomplete. The behaviour of these pollutants in biological, chemical and physicochemical wastewater treatment is followed with the help of substance-specific detection methods — liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS), flow-injection analysis-mass spectrometry (FIA-MS) and tandem mass spectrometry (MS-MS). No elimination was observed using biochemical and adsorptive procedures and there were insufficient results from the physico-chemical treatment.
