  • 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 ...

  • Phenolic Resins: A Century of Progress

    With global capacity in excess of 5 million tons annually, phenolic resins are one of the leading thermosetting resins that are used in many diverse industries such as wood adhesives, fiberglass/mineral wool binder, molded materials for autos/electronic/electrical industries, brakes, abrasives, foam, coatings/adhesives, laminates, composites, ...

  • MBR Book, 2nd Edition

    A Membrane BioReactor (MBR) is the combination of a membrane process (e.g. microfiltration/ ultrafiltration) with a suspended growth bioreactor. When used with domestic wastewater, MBR processes can produce effluent of high enough quality to be discharged to waterways, or to be reclaimed for urban irrigation. Other advantages of MBRs over ...

  • Water Resources Management and the Environment

    Water has become an 'economic good' and the techno-socio-economic challenges involved in the protection, conservation, recycling and equitable utilization of water are addressed in this volume. An understanding of the linkages and dynamics of interactions involving water is provided in a total of twelve chapters. Chapters one to three constitute ...

  • 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 ...

  • Flotation Technology

    The Handbook of Environmental Engineering series is an incredible collection of methodologies that study the effects of pollution and waste in their three basic forms: gas, solid, and liquid.
