Due to the heterogeneous nature of water streams from diverse domestic and industrial sources, and the equally diverse nature of pollutants that can be physical, chemical, and biological in nature, their treatment methods also must be varied in nature. Responding to this complex situation, Wastewater Treatment: Advanced Processes and Technologies presents important concepts, technologies, and issues, essentially distilling the information into actionable treatment methods for various types of pollutants.
Edited by experts in the field, the book explores recent advances in wastewater treatment by various technologies such as chemical methods, biochemical methods, membrane separation techniques, and by application of Fenton and solar photo Fenton methods. It emphasizes new technologies that produce clean water and energy from the wastewater treatment process and addresses sustainable water reclamation, biomembrane treatment processes and advanced oxidation processes for wastewater treatment.
The editors and chapter authors judiciously blend coverage of treatment processes and technologies, making the diverse subject matter as comprehensible as possible. They tackle the difficulties of covering the gamut of advanced processes and technologies available concisely, without losing the rigor and details required for the information to be useful and applicable. Equations, figures, photographs, tables, case studies, examples, and references support the information provided in the text. These features combine to make the book an authoritative resource and practical tool for resolving wastewater treatment issues.
