This critical overview document (COD) presents, discusses and brings together the selected portfolio of publications that the author believes make a significant contribution to the field of wastewater treatment, focusing on the removal of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in wastewater treatment applications. The aim of the research within this COD was to investigate the fate, mechanisms and optimisation of EDCs removal in wastewater treatment applications. The key objectives were to: 1. Investigate and understand the mechanisms of removal of EDCs in wastewater and sludge treatment processes. 2. Evaluate novel methods for the removal of EDCs in water and wastewater treatment applications. 3. Establish the kinetic and thermodynamic properties of the removal processes to inform process modelling of full scale design of treatment processes.
