Book Description

Management of micropollutants and disinfection of by-products in municipal wastewater and extraction of energy from the sludge produced in wastewater treatment plants is under constant focus. This book presents a detailed know-how regarding sustainable management of wastes produced in municipal and industrial activities through novel state-of-the-art techniques used for the treatment of toxic industrial wastes and municipal wastewater. It deals with the management of municipal sludges and solid wastes including leachates produced from landfill sites. It also provides detailed information for achieving the stringent standards set by regulatory bodies for municipal and industrial effluents.


  • Covers development of new novel reactor configurations for wastewater treatment.
  • Describes handling and removal of emerging contaminants like pharmaceutical compounds endocrine disruptors and disinfection by-products.
  • Deliberates combination of wastewater and micro pollution.
  • Contains in-depth discussion on fecal sludge treatment and disposal.
  • Highlights new economically feasible techniques to enhance biogas recovery from treatment plant sludges.

This book is aimed at researchers, and graduate students in environmental engineering, wastewater treatment, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, and energy engineering.
