  • Chlorination/Dechlorination Handbook

    This all-inclusive book of chlorine-based chemicals is designed to help the wastewater professional apply the science of disinfection using the most up-to-date practices to ensure safety and control odors. This book is broken into sections that discuss the chemistry of chlorine compounds, handling and use of the chemicals, regulations that govern ...

  • Environmental Forensics - Proceedings of the 211 INEF Conference

    This publication includes peer-reviewed manuscripts from the 2011 International Network of Environmental Forensics (INEF) Conference held at St. John's College in Cambridge, UK. INEF is an organization founded by environmental forensic scientists for the express purpose of sharing and disseminating environmental forensic information to the ...

  • Optimizing Filtration and Disinfection Systems with a Risk-Based Approach

    Treated wastewater effluents contain high concentrations of particles; many of these particles are large (with diameters greater than 100 μm) and consist of densely-packed bacterial cells.  Microorganisms occluded in wastewater particles can be difficult to inactivate in chlorine disinfection systems, as the chlorine must first diffuse through the ...

  • Frames in the Toxicity Controversy

    There is a great deal of controversy about how to deal with man-made chemicals. Environmentalists and industrialists throughout the world clash on such subjects as chlorine, PVC, endocrine disrupters and the precautionary principle. In this book Tukker untangles the controversy. Three chapters relate to long-term evaluations into two ...

  • Environmental Forensics - Proceedings of the 29 INEF Annual Conference

    This publication includes peer-reviewed manuscripts from the 2009 International Network of Environmental Forensics (INEF) held in Calgary, Canada on August 31 through September 1, 2009. INEF is an organization founded by environmental forensic scientists for the express purpose of sharing and disseminating environmental forensic information to the ...

  • Handbook on Biodegradation and Biological Treatment of Hazardous Organic Compounds

    The removal of chemical pollutants in biological treatment systems and during bioremediation activities is dependent on the capacity of microorganisms to degrade synthetic chemicals. This book presents, for more than 100 synthetic compounds, an overview of the biodegradation processes and pathways that yield detoxification and mineralisation. ...

  • Environmental Tracers in Subsurface Hydrology

    Environmental Tracers in Subsurface Hydrology synthesizes the research of specialists into a comprehensive review of the application of environmental tracers to the study of soil water and groundwater flow. The book includes chapters which cover ionic tracers, noble gases, chlorofluorocarbons, tritium, chlorine-36, oxygen-18, deuterium, and ...

  • Endocrine Disrupters

    During recent decades, millions of tonnes of man-made chemicals have been produced and released into the environment, with very little safety testing. Many of these chemical substances have been found to interfere with the endocrine system and modulate its function. This book not only overviews the effects of endocrine/disrupting substances ...

  • Pollutants from Combustion Formation and Impact on Atmospheric Chemistry

    The preservation of the environment is of increasing concern at all scales, from individual countries through continents to the entire planet. Combustion is known to contribute substantially to damage to the atmosphere and therefore this book reviews current knowledge of the mechanisms by which the main pollutants are formed in combustion ...

  • New Types of Persistent Halogenated Compounds

    The book gives an overview of properties and research methods of new persistent organic chlorine and bromine compounds which have been observed as potential environmental hazards especially as bioaccumulated xenobiotics, but intensively studied only recently. Sources from product uses, industrial processes, wastes, emissions or metabolic ...

  • Multiple Stressor Effects in Relation to Declining Amphibian Population

    Original research discusses the protocols and approaches to studying the effects of multiple environmental stressors on amphibian populations and gives new perspectives on this complicated subject. This new publication integrates a variety of stressors that can act in concert and may ultimately cause a decline in amphibian populations. Sixteen ...

  • Dehalogenation

    Halogenated organic compounds constitute one of the largest groups of environmental chemicals. The industrial production of new halogenated organic compounds has increased throughout the last century and these compounds are integral to a variety of industrial applications. Although organohalide compounds are typically considered to be ...

  • Physicochemical Groundwater Remediation

    As we transition into the 21st century, it is apparent that this is an exciting time for environmental engineers and scientists studying remediation technologies. There has been a rapid development of new ways to clean-up polluted groundwater. Research activities of the past and next 10 years will have a dramatic impact on the quality of the ...

  • Biosolids Engineering and Management

    Over the last 30 years, pollution and its effects on the environment have emerged as leading topics of interest. The desire for positive action to restore and protect the environment is growing worldwide. How serious are particular types of pollution? Is technology currently available to abate pollution? And do the costs of abatement justify the ...
