Treatments that can be applied at the source water and limit bloom formation include aeration and chemical addition (e.g., copper sulfate and algaecides). Efficiencies of conventional treatment processes such as coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, and membrane processes for the removal of both cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins are also discussed. In addition, adsorption of cyanotoxins on activated carbon (AC) and several micro- and nanomaterials is presented. Finally, integrated treatment examples are reported with a specific reference to a lab study on powdered AC-ultrafiltration technologies for the removal of cyanotoxins.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9925||ISBN:||978-012382183-6||DOI:||10.1016/B978-0-12-382182-9.00032-3||Rights:||© 2014 Elsevier Inc.
