Theory and Practice of Biological Wastewater Treatment Book Review:

Among the challenges to mankind, few are more critical than the need to protect the environment. The rapid increase in population, coupled with the enormous rate on industrialization had a negative effect on the realization of this goal. As a result, the environ ment (water, air and earth) has been deteriorating more and more every day. It is only with the proper treatment of the wastes which are produced by man and his activities, that this deteriora tion can be stopped. Wastewater, is a major polluter of the environment. Although in many areas, science and technology has reached a level capable of preventing pollution, the reduction has not been realized for two reasons: (a) Lack of communication and transfer of knowledge to the desired extend between engineers and scientists, (b) Economic reasons. Good knowledge of the Biological Wastewater Treatment pro cesses is essential to overcome the economic handicaps. Because of that the improvement and dissemination of knowledge in this field was selected as the goal of the NATO - Advanced Study Insti tute held in Istanbul in July 1976. The lectures presented at this meeting have been compiled in the present volume.

Chemical Water and Wastewater Treatment VII Book Review:

Treating potable and polluted water for the world's population is still one of our most important challenges. The United Nations estimate that more than 1.2 billion people suffer from inadequate water supply and an even larger number, up to 4 billion people, are without hygienic disposal of waste and wastewater. Water technology and the necessary "know-how transfer", has been the key objective of the Gothenburg symposia from the very beginning. The contents of this book respond to these challenges and demonstrate the impressive development of the field of chemical waster and wastewater treatment. The Chemical Water and Wastewater Treatment Series provides authoritative coverage of the key current developments in the chemical treatment of water and wastewater in theory or practice and related problems such a s sludge production and properties, and the reuse of chemicals and chemically-treated waters and sludges. For the tenth in the series, the contributions document the development if the field of chemical water and wastewater technology, both in terms of new technological developments as well as public and administrative acceptance and approval of the solutions offered. Such new developments include the use of membrane technology, the application of computational tools for kinetic process modelling and optimisation as well as the use of advanced oxidation processes in actual water treatment. Chemical Water and Wastewater Treatment VII covers fundamental science, new technological developments and practical experience and is an invaluable reference source for engineers scientists and administrators, active in the treatment of drinking water, municipal and industrial wastewater and sludges.

Experimental Methods in Wastewater Treatment Book Review:

Over the past twenty years, the knowledge and understanding of wastewater treatment has advanced extensively and moved away from empirically based approaches to a fundamentally-based first principles approach embracing chemistry, microbiology, and physical and bioprocess engineering, often involving experimental laboratory work and techniques. Many of these experimental methods and techniques have matured to the degree that they have been accepted as reliable tools in wastewater treatment research and practice. For sector professionals, especially a new generation of young scientists and engineers entering the wastewater treatment profession, the quantity, complexity and diversity of these new developments can be overwhelming, particularly in developing countries where access to advanced level laboratory courses in wastewater treatment is not readily available. In addition, information on innovative experimental methods is scattered across scientific literature and only partially available in the form of textbooks or guidelines. This book seeks to address these deficiencies. It assembles and integrates the innovative experimental methods developed by research groups and practitioners around the world. Experimental Methods in Wastewater Treatment forms part of the internet-based curriculum in wastewater treatment at UNESCO-IHE and, as such, may also be used together with video records of experimental methods performed and narrated by the authors including guidelines on what to do and what not to do. The book is written for undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, laboratory staff, plant operators, consultants, and other sector professionals.

Sustainable Water Engineering Book Review:

Ensuring safe and plentiful supplies of potable water (both now and for future generations) and developing sustainable treatment processes for wastewater are among the world’s greatest engineering challenges. However, sustainability requires investment of money, time and knowledge. Some parts of the world are already working towards this goal but many nations have neither the political will nor the resources to tackle even basic provision and sanitation. Combining theory and practice from the developing and developed worlds with high- and low-tech, high- and low-cost solutions, this book discusses fundamental and advanced aspects of water engineering and includes: water resource issues including climate change, water scarcity, economic and financial aspects requirements for sustainable water systems fundamentals of treatment and process design industrial water use and wastewater treatment sustainable effluent disposal sustainable construction principles With integrated theory, design and operation specifications for each treatment process, this book addresses the extent to which various treatment methods work in theory as well as how cost effective they are in practice. It provides a nontechnical guide on how to recover and reuse water from effluent, which is suitable for those in water resource management, environmental planning, civil and chemical engineering.

Fundamentals of Water Treatment Unit Processes Book Review:

Carefully designed to balance coverage of theoretical and practical principles, Fundamentals of Water Treatment Unit Processes delineates the principles that support practice, using the unit processes approach as the organizing concept. The author covers principles common to any kind of water treatment, for example, drinking water, municipal wastewater, industrial water treatment, industrial waste water treatment, and hazardous wastes. Since technologies change but principles remain constant, the book identifies strands of theory rather than discusses the latest technologies, giving students a clear understanding of basic principles they can take forward in their studies. Reviewing the historical development of the field and highlighting key concepts for each unit process, each chapter follows a general format that consists of process description, history, theory, practice, problems, references, and a glossary. This organizational style facilitates finding sections of immediate interest without having to page through an excessive amount of material. Pedagogical Features End-of-chapter glossaries provide a ready reference and add terms pertinent to topic but beyond the scope of the chapter Sidebars sprinkled throughout the chapters present the lore and history of a topic, enlarging students’ perspective Example problems emphasize tradeoffs and scenarios rather than single answers and involve spreadsheets Reference material includes several appendices and a quick-reference spreadsheet Solutions manual includes spreadsheets for problems Supporting material is available for download Understanding how the field arrived at its present state of the art places the technology in a more logical context and gives students a strong foundation in basic principles. This book does more than build technical proficiency, it adds insight and understanding to the broader aspects of water treatment unit processes.
