Abstrakt

Celem artykułu jest przedstawienie zagadnień dotyczących obecności i źródeł występowania bisfenolu A w ściekach i środowisku. Bisfenol A (BPA) jest związkiem organicznym, stosowanym przede wszystkim do produkcji tworzyw sztucznych. Należy do związków wykazujących negatywne oddziaływanie na układ hormonalny (endocrine disrupting compounds, EDC), w związku z czym nie powinien być emitowany do środowiska naturalnego. W artykule przedstawiono podstawowe informacje dotyczące bisfenolu A oraz potencjalne źródła emisji tego związku do środowiska. Dokonano przeglądu literatury potwierdzającej obecność bisfenolu A w ściekach, osadach oraz wodach naturalnych. Efektywne oczyszczenie ścieków i neutralizacja bisfenolu A obecnego w osadach ściekowych pozwoliłoby na częściowe ograniczenie zanieczyszczenia środowiska naturalnego.

Słowa kluczowe: bisfenol A (BPA), ścieki, woda, osady, powietrze
