Management of Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CEC) in Environment provides information on new concepts and the latest developments in the origin, reaction pathways, transportation, transformation products, identification and adverse effects of CEC, as well as recent remediation technologies and tools for CEC. The book explores processes such as nanotechnology for the degradation of CEC by using various heterogeneous catalysts. Chapters incorporate both theoretical and practical aspects and will serve as a baseline for future studies. The book is an indispensable resource for university students, teachers and researchers, especially those working in the areas of remediation and management of contaminants.
