Potential fate and remediation of detergent-polluted water
I try to find literature concerning the removal of anionic surfactant (LAS) from washing waste water using alum or other coagulants (chemical treatment). I am working on the potential risk of surfactants in irrigation water of gardens on the growth of plants, soil properties, LAS leachability, growth of beneficial and phytopathogenic soil-borne microorganisms, and on how to chemo-remediate the detergent-washing waste water. I hope to find help and I am ready to exchange my finding with whom need it, when I finish it.

Dear I am working in the same subject and I am looking for help on this.
I found some literature that may help even though, it seems too late for help.
