Innovative and Integrated Technologies for the Treatment of Industrial Wastewater

This book deals with advanced technological solutions for the treatment of industrial wastewater such as aerobic granular biomass based systems, advanced oxidation processes integrated with biological treatments, membrane contactors and membrane chemical reactors. Wastewater from pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries as well as landfill leachates are specifically considered as representative of major problems encountered when treating i

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 ...

Marine Wastewater Outfalls and Treatment Systems

Wastewater disposal by marine outfalls is proven and effective and is a reliable and cost effective solution with minimal environmental impacts. The design and siting of submarine outfalls is a complex task that relies on many disciplines including oceanography, civil and environmental engineering, marine biology, construction, economics, and public relations. Marine Wastewater Outfalls and Treatment Systems brings these disciplines together and ...

Treatment of Micropollutants in Water and Wastewater

Over the last few years there has been a growing concern over the increasing concentration of micropollutants originating from a great variety of sources including pharmaceutical, chemical engineering and personal care product industries in rivers, lakes, soil and groundwater. As most of the micropollutants are polar and persistent compounds, they are only partially or not at all removed from wastewater and thus can enter the environment posing ...

Innovative Financing Mechanisms for the Water Sector

Part of OECD Water Policy and Finance Set - Buy all four reports and save over 30% on buying separately! This report examines innovative mechanisms that can help attract new financial resources into water and sanitation services. In particular, it focuses on mobilising market-based repayable financing (such as loans, bonds and equity) as a way of bridging the financial gap to meet the water-related Millennium Development Goals and other crucial ...

Pricing Water Resources and Water and Sanitation Services

Part of OECD Water Policy and Finance Set - Buy all four reports and save over 30% on buying separately! In both OECD and non-OECD countries the water sector is facing the challenges of increased competition for water resources, deteriorating water quality, and the effects of climate change and poor management. In this context, how can countries ensure access to adequate, sustainable and affordable water and sanitation services for all?  Pricing ...

The investigations and studies presented in ...

Uncertainty in Wastewater Treatment Design and Operation

Scientific and Technical Report No. 21 Uncertainty in Wastewater Treatment Design and Operation aims to facilitate the transition of the wastewater profession to the probabilistic use of simulators with the associated benefits of being better able to take advantage of opportunities and manage risk. There is a paradigm shift taking place in the design and operation of treatment plants in the water industry. The market is currently in transition ...

Experimental Methods in Wastewater Treatment

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 ...

Advanced Oxidation Processes for Water Treatment: Fundamentals and Applications

Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs)that rely on the efficient generation of reactive radical species increasingly attract greater interest with respect to their application to water remediation from a wide variety of organic micropollutants concerning human health or the environment.   Advanced Oxidation Processes for Water Treatment covers the key advanced oxidation processes developed for chemical contaminant destruction in polluted water ...

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 ...

Manual on the Human Rights to Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation for Water and Sanitation Practitioners

The Manual on the Human Rights to Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation for Water and Sanitation Practitioners aims: • to introduce the principles and concepts contained in the United Nations resolutions recognizing the Human Right to Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation (HRWS) • to clarify the language and terminology used in the promotion of human rights, and • to provide guidance on the roles and responsibilities for everyone who contributes to ...

Groundwater Arsenic Remediation

Arsenic abatement from groundwater in locations with a central water distribution system is relatively simple. The real challenge is selecting the most effective and affordable treatment and scale up option for locations which lack the appropriate infrastructure.

State of Knowledge of the Use of Sorption Technologies for Nutrient Recovery from Municipal Wastewaters Nutrients

The depletion of global phosphate rock stores and the energy intensity of ammonia production provide motivation for identifying alternative sources of these essential nutrients. The recovery of nutrients from wastewaters may be a viable nutrient source. Adsorption offers a highly efficient and stable, low cost technology for phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) removal; desorption of the nutrients from the sorbent will allow phosphorus and nitrogen ...
