Book Description

Adsorption is one of the method that is in use for remediation of contaminated water. The experimental factors affecting the batch mode of adsorption of various metals and inorganic anions are discussed in this book. The elemental contaminants have been categorized into four major categories i.e. major toxic elements; essential elements having toxicity on excessive exposure; miscellaneous elements having undetermined effects; non-toxic elements having trivial or unidentified significance. In addition, anions like nitrate, perchlorate and sulphate as water contaminants are considered. This unique volume fills a niche in the area of water treatment.

Key Features:

  • Provides practitioners with the background they need to understand and apply batch adsorption processes to the purification of water
  • Describes the actions of adsorption capacity or percentage removal with respect to factors affecting the adsorption process
  • Excellent source of information for those working in the industry for remediation of metals and anions
  • Discusses the current era of Anthropocene which is highly dependent on the anthropogenic mineral sources for its sustenance

Biography

Dr Deepak Gusain is an assistant professor in the Department of Environmental

Studies in PGDAV (Evening) College, University of Delhi. He earned his master’s

degree in environmental studies from the University of Delhi and completed his

Ph.D. at the Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras

Hindu University), Varansiin Varanasi, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at the

Institute for Water and Wastewater Technology in Durban University of Technology.

His Ph.D. research focused on the remediation of chromium and cadmium from

aqueous solution using nanocrystalline material. In addition, he investigated the

effect of linear and nonlinear curve fitting on the estimation of isotherm and kinetic

and thermodynamic parameters during the adsorption process.

Professor Faizal Bux is a professor and director of the Institute for Water and

Wastewater Technology, Durban University of Technology. His affiliations also

include Fellow of the International Water Association, Royal Society of Chemistry,

and Water Institute of Southern Africa and he is a member of the Academy of Science

of South Africa. He has won several national and international awards and published

extensively. Professor Faizal Bux’s group works on wastewater treatment and reuse,

wastewater beneficiation, and health-related microbiology, bioremediation, algal biotechnology,

and constructed wetlands.
