Abstract: For the purpose of improving the eliminating efficiency of EDCs/PPCPs from drinking water, commercially available powdered activated carbon (PAC) was further ground to produce submicron-sized activated carbon (SPAC) and applied to a hybrid process which combined PACs with low pressure membrane (UF) separation. In this study, the research scope covers estimation of the adsorption kinetics and isotherms of three selected EDCs/PPCPs compounds, namely estrone (E1), carbamazepine (CBZ), and diclofenac (DCF) with different structure and properties, exploration the competitive adsorption mechanism of NOM on E1 removal, and investigation of the removal performance of DCF by the PACs-UF hybrid processes in various water matrixs.
