    Activated Carbon: Solutions for Improving Water Quality

    Activated carbon is simple to operate as an adsorption medium for water, serves as a proactive barrier for contamination, and does not produce by-products from its use. Used in treatment worldwide, activated carbon produces very high-quality water. Its implementation helps utilities gain regulatory compliance and position themselves to meet future ...

  • Cement Technology Roadmap 2009 : Carbon emissions reductions up to 2050

    Cement Technology Roadmap: Carbon emissions reductions up to 2050” calls for strong national policies to activate known CO 2 mitigation actions that the cement industry can take now to reduce its emissions. It also issues a call to action to develop commercially-viable carbon capture and storage technologies as a method for further reducing global ...

  • Technology Roadmap for Sustainable Wastewater Treatment Plants in a Carbon-Constrained World

    Resources end up in wastewater through inefficient consumption.  As a result, wastewater contains reusable water, carbon (energy) and nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur) that could be recovered or reused. Meanwhile, current treatment objectives are to produce an acceptable quality of water for reuse or discharge at the lowest life cycle ...

  • The Membrane-Coupled Activated Sludge Process in Municipal Wastewater Treatment

    This book represents a milestone. It is the first overall presentation that summarizes the membrane-coupled activated sludge process (MCASP) in its entirety. The volume offers a thorough survey of current know-how, an explanation of the operational MCASP in municipal plants with full-scale membrane modules, and a description of its advantages and ...

  • Reduction, Modification and Valorisation of Sludge

    The adoption of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive requires sewage sludge to be subsequently treated and the Sewage Sludge Directive regulates the uses and properties of stabilised sludge for being either recycled or disposed. Both directives drive specific actions in two complementary ways. Reduction, Modification and Valorisation of ...

An overview of renewable energy technologies is presented including costs, availability, applicability, estimated ...

  • Perchlorate

    Perchlorate is a widespread, environmentally persistent contaminant recently discovered in U.S. groundwater and drinking water supplies. This book summarizes the most current knowledge and understandings of the extent and potential sources of perchlorate contamination, its behavior, exposure pathways in the environment, toxicology and risk ...

  • Development of a Microbial Fuel Cell for Sustainable Wastewater Treatment

    Wastewater treatment is an energy intensive process that removes contaminants and protects the environment. While some wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) recover a small portion of their energy demand through sludge handling processes, most of the useful energy available from wastewater remains unrecovered. Efforts are underway to harness energy ...

  • Air Pollution Control Engineering

    A panel of respected air pollution control educators and practicing professionals critically survey the both principles and practices underlying control processes, and illustrate these with a host of detailed design examples for practicing engineers. The authors discuss the performance, potential, and limitations of the major control ...

  • Kinetics of Metal Adsorption from Aqueous Solutions

    The last two decades have seen significant developments in both the science of adsorption and the technology based on it. Adsorption of metal ions by hydrous oxides and adsorbents such as activated carbon has drawn the attention of a number of investigators interested in environmental problems. Since heavy metals are detrimental to a variety ...
