  • Hazardous Pollutants in Biological Treatment Systems: A Guide to Fundamentals and Experimental Research

    Hazardous Pollutants in Biological Treatment Systems examines the behaviour, removal and effects of hazardous pollutants in biological treatment. While in former years the main aim in biological treatment was the removal of bulk organic matter or nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus, due to the discharge of a number of specific inorganic or ...

  • Striking the Balance between Nutrient Removal in Wastewater Treatment and Sustainability

    This study focuses on sustainability impacts as wastewater treatment plants implement treatment technologies to meet increasingly stringent nutrient limits. The objective is to determine if a point of “diminishing returns” is reached where the sustainability impacts of increased levels of nutrient removal outweigh the benefits of better water ...
