Fate and transport of surfactants in graywater when applied to soil
Graywater reuse for irrigation has been considered an efficient way to reduce demand on water supply. Concerns, however exist regarding the potential impacts that graywater pose to soil quality. In particular, the fate of surfactants, the primary component in personal care and cleaning products, is not well understood. The objective for this study was to gain a better understanding of the adsorption behavior of surfactant onto soils, with particular attention on the effect of the organic matter and soil texture, then provide a suggestion about the kind of surfactants and soil be reused during ...
