Candesartan removal from water

Our Nyex Rosalox system demonstrates remarkable efficiency in eliminating Candesartan from water. Based on our previous projects, we can successfully reduces the concentration of Candesartan from our clients wastewater, achieving remarkable results, all the way down to trace levels.

We ran various concentration levels through our Nyex water treatment technology and found we were able to consistently achieve a 98-99% removal of candesartan from wastewater.

Candesartan pollution

Candesartan has the potential to persist in water sources for extended periods.

Research suggests that Candesartan can remain active in water for weeks or even months, depending on the specific conditions. Its persistence contributes to the accumulation of pharmaceutical pollutants in the environment, further exacerbating the environmental impact.

Candesartan pollution can harm ecosystems and build up in marine life higher up in the food chain. It is therefore vital to look at the possibilities of candesartan decontamination from water.

Methods to remove candesartan from water

Several methods are currently employed for the removal of candesartan from water sources. However, each existing method has its drawbacks and advantages.

Common techniques include advanced oxidation processes, membrane filtration, and adsorption methods for candesartan in water using activated carbon.

Whilst many show promise, they may be expensive, require additional treatment steps, and have limitations in terms of efficiency and scalability.

GAC for candesartan removal

Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) is a commonly used adsorption method for the removal of various contaminants, including candesartan.

GAC functions by attracting and adsorbing the target substances onto its surface as polluted water is passed over it at pressure.

While GAC has proven effective in pharmaceutical removal, it does have limitations. These include:

The potential for saturation and reduced adsorption capacity over time.

The need for frequent replacement or reactivation

And the environmental challenge of handling and disposal of spent carbon.

In addition, our take on GAC (which you can read here) is that it’s a far from environmentally-friendly method of treating water.

Candesartan is a heart medication used for the treatment of high blood pressure and heart failure. It is sometimes present in municipal water due to not fully being metabolised. Our Nyex water treatment process is very effective at candesartan removal from water. We have consistently achieved 98-99% removal of candesartan from wastewater to between 0.03-0.01µg/L.
