    The proposed book mainly sorts out emerging and burning issues faced day to day by municipal and industrial wastewater treatments. It also provides a comprehensive view of recent advances in hybrid treatment technologies for wastewater treatment, addresses the current limitations and challenges of applying these tools in wastewater treatment systems. This book gives an insight about recent developments in membrane technology for wastewater treatment. Industrial wastewater contains a large variety of compounds, such as heavy metals, salts and nutrients, which makes its treatment challenging. Thus, the use of conventional water treatment methods is not always effective. In this sense, membrane-based hybrid processes have emerged as a promising technology to treat complex industrial wastewater. The present book analyses and discusses the potential of membrane-based hybrid processes for the treatment of complex industrial wastewater along with the recovery of valuable compounds and water reutilization. In addition, recent and future trends in membrane technology are highlighted.

    Maulin P. Shah is very interested in genetic adaptation processes in bacteria, the mechanisms by which they deal with toxic substances, how they react to pollution in general and how we can apply microbial processes in a useful way (like bacterial bioreporters). One of his major interests is to study how bacteria evolve and adapt to use organic pollutants as novel growth substrates. Bacteria with new degradation capabilities are often selected in polluted environments and have accumulated small (mutations) and large genetic changes (transpositions, recombination, and horizontally transferred elements). His work has been focused to assess the impact of industrial pollution on microbial diversity of wastewater following cultivation dependant and cultivation independent analysis. He has more than 280 research publication in highly reputed national and international journals. He is Editorial Board Member in CLEAN-Soil, Air, Water- Wiley, Current Pollution Reports- Springer Nature, Environmental Technology & Innovation-Elsevier, Journal of Biotechnology & Biotechnological Equipment-Taylor & Francis, Current Microbiology- Springer Nature, Eco toxicology (Microbial Eco toxicology)-Springer Nature, Geo Microbiology- Taylor & Francis , Applied Water Science - Springer Nature, Archives of Microbiology-Springer, Journal of Applied Microbiology-Wiley, Letters in Applied Microbiology-Wiley, Green Technology, Resilience and Sustainability-Springer, Biomass Conversion & Bio refinery-Springer, Journal of Basic Microbiology-Wiley, Energy Nexus-Elsevier, e Prime – Elsevier, IET Nano biotechnology-Wiley, Cleaner and Circular Bioeconomy – Elsevier, International Microbiology - Springer has edited 75 books in wastewater microbiology, industrial wastewater treatment.
