This paper reviewed the occurrence of diclofenac in the ecosystem, its ecotoxicology and its
removal. Treatment technologies were based on two methods. Firstly, the physicochemical process
namely adsorption on activated carbon thanks to its economic benefits. At the other end, the second
method is biological process as biodegradation by activated sludge and membrane bioreactor. In this
latter process diclofenac can affect the bacterial community in sludge and influence the efficiency of
treatment or biodegradation.
 Comparison of different removal techniques for selected pharmaceuticals. Andrea Vona, Francesco di Martino, Jorge Garcia-Ivars, Yolanda Picó ,José-AntonioMendoza-Roca, Maria-Isabel Iborra-Clar. Journal of Water Process Engineering 5 (2015) 48-57
