The book series addresses novel techniques and measures related to sustainable water developments with an interdisciplinary focus on different fields of water resources assessment and management, freshwater production, water and wastewater treatment and wastewater reuse as well as water-efficient technologies and water-saving measures. Particular attention is paid to the role of water issues within the water-energy-food-public health-ecosystem-climate nexus.
Water and wastewater industries are rapidly growing sectors providing significant opportunities for investments. This applies especially to those industries using sustainable water and wastewater technologies, which are increasingly favored.
The series of books constitutes an information source and facilitator for the transfer of knowledge, focusing on practical solutions and better understanding. It is aimed at academics, manufacturers and consultants, and professionals from governmental and non-governmental organizations, international funding agencies, public health, policy, regulatory and other relevant institutions, as well as the wider public, and targets communities and industries both great and small. The series includes books authored and edited by world-renowned scientists and engineers as well as by leading authorities in economics and politics. Women are particularly encouraged to contribute, either as author or editor.
