Membrane Biological Reactors - Theory, Modeling, Design, Management and Applications to Wastewater Reuse

In recent years the MBR market has experienced unprecedented growth. The best practice in the field is constantly changing and unique quality requirements and management issues are regularly emerging.

Handbook of Biological Wastewater Treatment: Second Edition - Design and Optimisation of Activated Sludge Systems

The scope of this comprehensive new edition of Handbook of Biological Wastewater Treatment ranges from the design of the activated sludge system, final settlers, auxiliary units (sludge thickeners and digesters) to pre-treatment units such as primary settlers and UASB reactors.

Biological Wastewater Treatment: Third Edition

Written by experts in the field, this thoroughly updated third edition covers commonly used and emerging suspended and attached growth reactors. Drawing on their extensive academic and industrial experience, the authors discuss combined carbon and ammonia oxidation, activated sludge, biological nutrient removal, aerobic digestion, anaerobic processes, lagoons, trickling filters, rotating biological contactors, fluidized beds, and biologically

Activated Sludge and Aerobic Biofilm Reactors

Activated Sludge and Aerobic Biofilm Reactors is the fifth volume in the series Biological Wastewater Treatment. The first part of the book is devoted to the activated sludge process, covering the removal of organic matter, nitrogen and phosphorus. A detailed analysis of the biological reactor (aeration tank) and the final sedimentation tanks is provided.

Waste Stabilisation Ponds

Waste Stabilisation Ponds   is the third volume in the series Biological Wastewater Treatment.

Aerobic Granule Reactor Technology

A new development for the treatment of domestic wastewater is a technology based on aerobic granular sludge. Granular sludge can be developed under specific process conditions. Because of the unique properties of this granular sludge, high volumetric loading rates of aeration tanks can be applied. Thanks to excellent settling properties, the separation of treated wastewater and granular sludge can take place at high hydraulic loading rates.

Physical-Chemical Treatment of Water and Wastewater

The books currently available on this subject contain some elements of physical-chemical treatment of water and wastewater but fall short of giving comprehensive and authoritative coverage. They contain some equations that are not substantiated, offering empirical data based on assumptions that are therefore difficult to comprehend. This text brings together the information previously scattered in several books and adds the knowledge from the

Biophysics of the Surface Microlayer of Aquatic Ecosystems

Biophysics of the Surface Microlayer of Aquatic Ecosystems introduces the concept of the surface film, or microlayer, of natural water bodies as a specific biophysical environment. The book investigates the hydrophysics, physical chemistry, hydrochemistry and hydrobiology of the surface microlayer in detail.

The Combined Sharon/Anammox Process

Wastewater treatment management, alongside many other industries, is seeking to attain a higher degree of sustainability for its processes by focusing on new technologies which minimise the consumption of resources or even recover them from the wastewater.

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

Activated Sludge - 100 Years and Counting

Activated Sludge - 100 Years and Counting covers the current status of all aspects of the activated sludge process and looks forward to its further development in the future. It celebrates 100 years of the Activated Sludge process, from the time that the early developers presented the seminal works that led to its eventual worldwide adoption. The book assembles contributions from renowned world leaders in activated sludge research, development, ...

Framework for Energy Neutral Treatment for the 21st Century through Energy Efficient Aeration

Clean and process water tests for aeration efficiency measurements were performed on a suite of diffusers in different processes for approximately one year. The research plan was set up to test the same diffusers in different processes and different diffusers in the same process. The most evident finding regarding the scaling factor for oxygen transfer efficiency in process water (±-factor) is that all diffusers seems to experience a decrease ...

Mass Transfer Characteristics of Floating Media in MBBR and IFAS Fixed-Film Systems

The goals of this project were to establish a standard protocol for measuring mass transfer rates in biofilm media, and to use the resulting data to develop and calibrate an empirical model. Two laboratory-scale continuous flow reactors were loaded with MBBR media donated from two manufacturers, and fed a synthetic wastewater free of organic carbon, but rich in ammonia. The reactors were aerated using coarse-bubble aeration, and operated at two ...
