Water treatment: Why is AOM hard to remove?

Researchers from the Institute of Hydrodynamics, CAS, have revealed that the cause of low removal efficiency of AOM (Algal Organic Matter) originating from the green algae and cyanobacteria is low-molecular substances mostly of non-protein character. The research results have been published in the renowned Journal of Environmental Sciences. Due to eutrophication (enrichment of water with […]
