  • Handbook of Biological Wastewater Treatment: Second Edition

    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. The core of the book deals with the optimized design of biological and ...

  • Deep Trouble: The Hidden Threat of Groundwater Pollution

    A Global Sampler of Groundwater PollutionIndia's Central Pollution Control Board surveyed 22 major industrial zones in the late-1990s and found that groundwater in every one of them was unfit for drinking. (p. 32)In the northern Chinese provinces of Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, and Shandong, nitrate concentrations in groundwater exceeded the health ...

  • Governance of Water-Related Conflicts in Agriculture

    The book contributes to a better understanding of the role such co-operation can play in complying cost-effectively with European environmental legislation, in particularly the EU Nitrates and Water Framework Directives, and in achieving a sustainable agriculture. The feasibility of meeting environmental standards by the application of voluntary ...

  • Application of Demilitarized Gun and Rocket Propellants in Commercial Explosives

    In the United States alone, more commercial explosives are consumed in one month than the entire quantity of explosives consumed in the Second World War. Vast quantities of propellants and explosives are stored in military bunkers: the amount of small arms ammunition alone is sufficient to kill the entire population of the planet several ...

  • The Eastern Mediterranean as a Laboratory Basin for the Assessment of Contrasting Ecosystems

    The Eastern Mediterranean is the most nutrient impoverished and oligotrophic water body known. The unique feature of the Mediterranean is the presence of an eastward longitudinal trend in available nitrate/phosphate ratios, which apparently induces a west-to-east variation in the structure of the pelagic food web and trophic interactions. In ...

  • Environmental Effects of Afforestation in North-Western Europe

    Afforestation of former arable land is currently a common change in land use in many European countries. In addition to wood production, the new forests will provide a variety of environmental services, such as carbon sequestration or improved water quality. At the same time there may be negative impacts, such as reduced groundwater recharge. The ...

  • The Chemistry of Phosphate and Nitrogen Compounds in Sediments

    This book deals with the processes constituting the cycles of the phosphate and nitrogen compounds in sediment and the phosphate equilibria between the sediment and the overlying water. Sediment, to a large extent, controls the P- and N concentrations and thus primary production. In most waters, too high concentrations of these compounds cause ...

  • Turning a Problem Into a Resource

    The Sillamäe Metallurgy Plant in Estonia was managed by the USSR Ministry of Medium-Scale Engineering and was built in 1946 to produce uranium metal from local shales. After these were found to be unsatisfactory, uranium ores were imported. Part of the plant was converted in the 1980s to produce rare earth oxides and niobium and tantalum from ...

  • New Methods for Corrosion Testing of Aluminum Alloys

    13 papers were presented at the International Symposium on Corrosion Testing Of Aluminum Alloys. This symposium was an outcome of a workshop on exfoliation corrosion, which was organized to discuss the usefulness of various current standards on exfoliation and corrosion testing and their applicability to current requirements and new advanced ...
