In connection with the publication of the new European directive for drinking water, some new indicators of drinking water quality from the category of micropollutants have been introduced, which will have to be eliminated during the production of drinking water. The described research focused on selected progressive technologies applicable in water treatment regarding the removal of micropollutants. It is expected that for the elimination of other micropollutants it will be possible to use existing technologies used, for example, to remove pesticides, such as activated carbon filtration, high-pressure membranes, or technologies using nanomaterials will be deployed. Increased attention is paid to the use of nano-iron for water treatment. A series of laboratory tests of selected technologies with the potential to eliminate micropollutants is presented. The article presents the overall efficiency found in selected indicators during laboratory tests, the overall efficiency of technologies and the limits and limiting factors regarding the elimination of the given pollution are discussed.
