  • Implementation of Biological Filtration for the Treatment of Cyanobacterial Metabolites

    Specific issues investigated in this project were: Identifying the most effective substrate for optimum biofilm formation, and the range of operating conditions for optimum removals to be achieved; Developing a standard suite of laboratory tests, both simulated filtration tests and genetic tests, to identify the potential of an existing filter to ...

  • Wastewater Treatment: Occurrence and Fate of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)

    This book describes the sources of water contamination by PAHs and their transportation and fate in natural aquatic systems. It then discusses, from the analytical chemist’s view, how to determine the presence of PAHs in water and wastewater, and the changes in PAH concentration during treatment processes. The text examines the removal of PAHs ...

  • Immobilised Biocatalysts for Bioremediation of Groundwater and Wastewater

    The European project MINOTAURUS explored innovative bio-processes to eliminate emerging and classic organic pollutants. These bio-processes are all based on the concept of immobilization of biocatalysts (microorganisms and enzymes) and encompass bioaugmentation, enzyme technology, rhizoremediation with halophytes, and a bioelectrochemical ...

  • Industrial MBRs: Membrane Bioreactors for Industrial Wastewater Treatment

    Industrial MBRs' is a concise guide to the design, operation and general implementation of membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology in the treatment of industrial effluents. Industrial sectors considered include food and beverage, petroleum, pharmaceutical, landfill, textile and ships. The book provides a brief summary of each of these sectors, along ...

  • Benchmarking of Control Strategies for Wastewater Treatment Plants

    Wastewater treatment plants are large non-linear systems subject to large perturbations in wastewater flow rate, load and composition. Nevertheless these plants have to be operated continuously, meeting stricter and stricter regulations. Many control strategies have been proposed in the literature for improved and more efficient operation of ...
