  • Chemical Oxidation Applications for Industrial Wastewaters

    This book covers the most recent scientific and technological developments (state-of-the-art) in the field of chemical oxidation processes applicable for the efficient treatment of biologically-difficult-to-degrade, toxic and/or recalcitrant effluents originating from different manufacturing processes. It is a comprehensive review of process and ...

  • Treatment of Micropollutants in Water and Wastewater

    Over the last few years there has been a growing concern over the increasing concentration of micropollutants originating from a great variety of sources including pharmaceutical, chemical engineering and personal care product industries in rivers, lakes, soil and groundwater. As most of the micropollutants are polar and persistent compounds, they ...

  • Pharmaceuticals in the Environment

    About 4000 medical compounds are being used in the drugs applied today. It is estimated that worldwide consumption of active compounds amounts to some 100 000 tons or more per year. Consequently, there is a need to highlight the most important questions and issues related to presence of pharmaceuticals in the environment. Pharmaceuticals in the ...

  • Proceedings of the Twenty-seventh Annual International Conference on Thermal Treatment Technologies (IT3)

    This May 12-16, 2008 conference, held in Montreal, QC, provided a forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art technical information on thermal treatment technologies. The invited and contributed papers in this proceedings CD-ROM address approaches to safely managing waste streams amenable to thermal treatment processes, and evaluate their ...

  • Fate of Pharmaceuticals in the Environment and in Water Treatment Systems

    Found in concentrations at the parts-per-trillion or low parts-per-billion, the detection of pharmaceutical residues remained elusive until instruments such as liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry became commonplace in environmental laboratories. As a result, the occurrence of pharmaceutical residues and endocrine disrupting chemicals in water ...

  • Waste Treatment in the Process Industries

    Increasing demand on industrial capacity has, as an unintended consequence, produced an accompanying increase in harmful and hazardous wastes. Derived from the second edition of the popular Handbook of Industrial and Hazardous Wastes Treatment, Waste Treatment in the Process Industries outlines the fundamentals and latest developments in waste ...

  • Handbook of Industrial and Hazardous Wastes Treatment

    Presenting effective, practicable strategies modeled from ultramodern technologies and framed by the critical insights of 78 field experts, this vastly expanded Second Edition offers 32 chapters of industry- and waste-specific analyses and treatment methods for industrial and hazardous waste materials-from explosive wastes to landfill leachate to ...

  • Chemistry in the Marine Environment

    The oceans cover more than 70% of the earth's surface to an average depth of almost 4000 metres. It is therefore not surprising that exchanges that occur between ocean and atmosphere exert major influences on the global climate. In addition, there is great variety within the expanses of the ocean, including large temperature differences, and ...

  • Safe Management of Wastes from Health-care Activities

    This handbook provides the first comprehensive guide to the safe and efficient handling, treatment, and disposal of all categories of hazardous waste generated by health-care activities. Although the major emphasis is on waste generated by hospitals, guidelines and advice are also relevant to wastes produced in health centres, research facilities, ...

  • Biology and Conservation of Horseshoe Crabs

    The four living species of horseshoe crabs face a set of growing threats to their survival, including the erosion and/or man-made alteration of essential spawning habitat, coastal pollution, and overfishing. Horseshoe crabs are “living fossils”, with a more than 200 million year evolutionary history. Their blood provides a reagent, known as ...

  • Emerging Organic Pollutants in Waste Waters and Sludge

    Over the past fifteen years regulatory agencies have relied on their approaches to characterise and control the release of toxic substances into the aquatic environment: a GC/MS analysis for U.S. EPA designated 126 priority pollutants and 132 dangerous substances according to the European 76/464/CEE Directive and on the bioassays with aquatic ...

  • Green and Sustainable Pharmacy

    Within recent years pharmaceuticals have come into focus as contaminants of the environment (see for example Kümmerer, K. editor: Pharmaceuticals in the Environment). At the same time the issue of sustainable chemistry gained momentum. Bringing both together would result in sustainable pharmacy. Sustainable pharmacy is a totally new issue and ...

  • Protocols in Lichenology

    As an intricate association between a fungus and one or more green algae or cyanobacteria, lichens are one of the most successful examples of symbiosis. These fascinating organisms survive extreme desiccation and temperatures. They are adapted to a great variety of habitats, from deserts to intertidal zones, from tropical rain forests to the peaks ...
