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 with a wealth ...

Biofouling of Spiral Wound Membrane Systems

The study of membrane biofouling has increased strongly in the past four years, compared to the previous twenty two years, indicated by the more than doubling of the number of scientifi c papers. However, no single source gives an updated overview of biofouling. Biofouling of Spiral Wound Membrane Systems gives a complete and comprehensive overview of all aspects of biofouling, bridging the gap between microbiology, hydraulics and membrane ...

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 plant ...

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

Special Offer: KWR Drinking Water Treatment Set - Buy all five books together and save a total £119! 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. The main objective of this book is to develop a general strategy to assess elimination ...

Basic Water Treatment: Fifth Edition

Basic Water Treatment 5e is an essential reference and primer on all aspects of water quality and treatment principles and processes. This accessible introduction and practical guide to water treatment focuses on the issues of most interest to practising engineers, summarising the key issues and criteria in short and accessible sections, with additional theory to explain and support the treatment processes considered. Updated, revised and ...

Holistic Assessment of Trace Organic Compounds (TOrC) in Wastewater Treatment

A study of trace organic compound (TOrC) reactivity to selected, advanced wastewater treatment processes was conducted as part of a demonstration-scale pilot study. The pilot facilities consisted of a biological nitrogen removal (BNR) activated sludge treatment process, parallel membrane and granular media filtration processes and a biologically active filter preceded by ozone treatment, and three parallel disinfection processes: free chlorine, ...

MBR Book, 2nd Edition

A Membrane BioReactor (MBR) is the combination of a membrane process (e.g. microfiltration/ ultrafiltration) with a suspended growth bioreactor. When used with domestic wastewater, MBR processes can produce effluent of high enough quality to be discharged to waterways, or to be reclaimed for urban irrigation. Other advantages of MBRs over conventional processes include small footprint, easy retrofit and upgrade of old wastewater treatment ...

Nanotechnology for Water and Wastewater Treatment

The rapid development of nanoscience enables a technology revolution that will soon impact virtually every facet of the water sector. Yet, there is still too little understanding of what nanoscience and nanotechnology is, what can it do and whether to fear it or not, even among the educated public as well as scientists and engineers from other disciplines. Despite the numerous books and textbooks available on the subject, there is a gap in the ...

Rational Design of Next-generation Nanomaterials and Nanodevices for Water Applications

Despite the fact that nanotechnology has been present for a few decades, there is a big gap between what nanotechnology is perceived and what nanotechnology can truly offer in all sectors of water. The question to be answered is _x0018_what more can we expect from nanotechnology_x0019_ in the water field? The rational nano-design starts with well-defined problem definitions, necessitates interdisciplinary approaches, involves ...

Water - Energy Interactions in Water Reuse

  The focus of Water-Energy Interactions in 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 ...
