Wastewater Treatment: Advanced Processes and Technologies

Emphasizing new technologies that produce clean water and energy from the wastewater treatment process, Wastewater Treatment: Advanced Processes and Technologies presents recent advancements in wastewater treatment by various technologies such as chemical methods, biochemical methods, membrane separation techniques, and nanotechnology. It addresses sustainable water reclamation, biomembrane treatment processes, advanced oxidation processes, an

Handbook on Particle Separation Processes

Particles in water play an important role in all kinds of water quality and treatment issues. Since the early beginnings of centralised water production and treatment, the main goal of water purification was primarily the removal of water turbidity in order to produce clear water free from visible particles.The Handbook on Particle Separation Processes provides knowledge and expertise from a selected group of international experts wit

Biofouling of Spiral Wound Membrane Systems

High quality drinking water can be produced with membrane filtration processes like reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF). As the global demand for fresh clean water is increasing, these membrane technologies are increasingly important. One of the most serious problems in RO/NF applications is biofouling – excessive growth of biomass – affecting the performance of the RO/NF systems. This can be due to the increase in pressur

Operating Large Scale Membrane Bioreactors for Municipal Wastewater Treatment

During the last decade membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology has grown up to be state of the art in municipal wastewater treatment. Since 1999 the Erftverband has designed, tendered and commissioned three MBR for municipal wastewater treatment in Germany, with capacities from 3,000 to 45,000 m³/d. The Erftverband was one of the pioneers in the full scale application of the technology regularly hosted training and information workshops for

Science and Technology of Industrial Water Treatment

Featuring the contributions of industrial and academic experts, this volume discusses the fundamental and practical aspects of industrial water treatment. After an overview of water chemistry and the characteristics of mineral scales, the book addresses the formation and control of different scales in various systems. It covers membrane-based separation processes, reverse osmosis systems, and scale control in thermal distillation processes. It

Membrane Bioreactors for Wastewater Treatment

The book covers the subject of membrane bioreactors (MBR) for wastewater treatment, dealing with municipal as well as industrial wastewaters. The book details the 3 types of MBR available and discusses the science behind the technology, their design features, operation, applications, advantages, limitations, performance, current research activities and cost.As the demand for wastewater treatment, recycling and re-use technologies incr

Water-Energy Interactions in Water Reuse

The focus of Water-Energy Interactions of Water Reuse is to collect original contributions and some relevant publications from recent conference proceedings in order to provide state-of-art information on the use of energy in wastewater treatment and reuse systems. Special focus is given to innovative technologies, such as membrane bioreactors, high pressure membrane filtration systems, and novel water reuse processes. A comparison of energy c

Quantitative Methods to Assess Capacity of Water Treatment to Eliminate Micro-Organisms

Ever since the recognition of the important role of water in the transmission of pathogenic micro-organisms in the 19th century, microbiological safety of drinking water has been a major research issue for microbiologists in the drinking water industry.
