Detection of Micropollutants


The detection, identification and quantification of micropollutants in wastewater, coastal, continental and transition waters is among the services offered by the CALAGUA group. Our analysis techniques can determine the removal rate of these substances in WWTP processes and assess the quality of the surface waters that receive the outflows from these plants.

Our analyses can also detect the presence of micropollutants in different matrices (wastewater, sludge, and continental, coastal and transition waters, also in sediments and biota), mainly by solid phase microextraction, gas chromatography separation, capillary liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry quantification, electron capture and diode array.
