Fate analysis of emerging contaminants at basin scale

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research aims to evaluate mechanisms of formation and transport of contaminated organisms (CEC: Contaminants of Emerging Concern) at basin-scale through an integrated approach. In particular, we will set up a modeling tool capable of assessing the contributions from individual sub-systems (sewer system, treatment plant and receiving water). This modeling tool will also evaluate the effects of any mitigation measures designed to reduce the pollutant load spilled into the water body. The study will be developed at basin scale, and for this reason we will take into account both point pollution sources (urban and industrial origin), and diffuse sources of pollution (farming and animal husbandry).

As a case study will be employed the Nocella River basin, found as suitable case study for the proposed methodology. This receiving water body is affected by several pollutant discharges (civil and productive origin).

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
