This book will contain the most important ion exchange-related design and application issues. Using tables, graphs, and conversion tables, it will explain the fundamentals, providing the knowledge to use ion exchange to reuse wastewaters, recover valuable chemicals, and recycle industrial waters. For anyone who is designing unconventional ion exchange systems, or who needs a fundamental knowledge of ion exchange, this is the perfect working reference. This new edition will be updated throughout, add a new chapter (Selective Ion Exchange Resins), and include all new information on the removal of boron, arsenic, nitrates, ammonia, radioactivity, silica, and heavy metals from water.
"This book perfectly explains the basic theory, design, and operation of ion exchange systems. Each chapter stands on its own, allowing rapid access to each topic of interest. Examples are abundant throughout, and most chapters provide reference sections for further reference and research. I really appreciate the quick and relatively easy lab scale studies which are perfect base for scaling up the system, while the application and design section is very relevant to recent water treatment challenges."

"I am positive that this book will…be beneficial to many readers, including students in the classroom and operators in the field."
—Derek Kim, Econity Inc., Anaheim, California, USA
"Details of available resins designed as strong or weak base exchangers—both cation and anion—are given and specific problems are provided which cover common industrial applications, including worked examples. There are 20 pages of useful appendices supplying tables, conversion factors, and other essential resin details."
