Separate Collection of Iodinated X-ray Contrast Media and their Transformation
The workshop’s objective was to present the results of the R&D project “Separate Collection of Iodinated X-ray Contrast Media in Hospitals” carried out by KWB. The project has demonstrated that it is possible to clear the wastewater by methods which are well-established in hospitals.
In addition, several research institutions presented their current results referring to the elimination and degradation of X-ray contrast media in aqueous solutions.
With 50 persons participating, among them also guests from France, the workshop was well attended.
