Funding : INP Toulouse
Doctoral School : Mécanique, énergétique, génie civil, procédés (MEGEP) Keywords: bioelectrochemical processes, water treatment, micropolluants, microorganisms, biofilms, electrochemistry, analytical chemistry Organic micropollutants (MPs) are mainly man-made contaminants that can have toxic effects on living organisms at very low concentrations. MPs are contained in cosmetics, medicines, plant protection products and cleaning products, etc.: MPs are ubiquitous. They are found in wastewaters, surface waters and drinking water, with a direct impact on the environment, biodiversity and human health. In 2021 in France, it was estimated that around 147 tons of MPs were ...
