  • 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 ...

  • Nanotechnology for Water and Wastewater Treatment

    The rapid development of nanoscience enables a technology revolution that will soon impact virtually every facet of the water sector. Yet, there is still too little understanding of what nanoscience and nanotechnology is, what can it do and whether to fear it or not, even among the educated public as well as scientists and engineers from other ...

  • Tuning Biological Nutrient Removal Plants

    Tuning Biological Nutrient Removal Plants increases interest in tuning to enhance both performance and capacity, to provide insight into typical plant operating characteristics, and to stimulate operators' interest in studying the behaviour of their own plants. The book focuses on understanding of plant behavioural characteristics so that optimum ...

  • 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 ...

  • Evaluation of Processes to Reduce Activated Sludge Solids Generation and Disposal

    This project will deal with a number of aspects of WAS-only-reduction technologies for both industrial and municipal wastewater treatment applications. The objectives of this project include the following: Developing an evaluation methodology that can be used to independently assess the effectiveness of WAS-reduction technologies Demonstrating the ...

  • Technology Roadmap for Sustainable Wastewater Treatment Plants in a Carbon-Constrained World

    Resources end up in wastewater through inefficient consumption.  As a result, wastewater contains reusable water, carbon (energy) and nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur) that could be recovered or reused. Meanwhile, current treatment objectives are to produce an acceptable quality of water for reuse or discharge at the lowest life cycle ...

  • Automotive Lubricant Testing and Additive Development

    Twelve peer-reviewed papers focus on both the chemical and tribological aspects of automotive lubricant testing and additive development. In order to help the automotive industry meet lower emission standards, higher fuel economy goals, and longer drain intervals associated with a minimization of any adverse environmental effects, the petroleum ...

  • Fundamentals of Biofilm Research

    The history of natural sciences demonstrates that major advances in the understanding of natural processes follow the development of relevant tools. The progress of biofilm research is no different. While individual areas have mushroomed in recent years, difficulties in reproducing results, communicating new findings, and reconciling differences ...

  • Physical and Chemical Processes of Water and Solute Transport/Retention in Soils

    Transport and retention of water, nutrients, and inorganic and organic contaminants in the environment is greatly affected by physical and chemical processes in porous media such as soils. To definitively understand these processes, multiple scales--ranging from the landscape to the molecular--be investigated. Topics include fractal and spatial ...

  • Sanitation Promotion

    A collection of original articles, case studies, checklists, worksheets, and stimulating ideas aimed at raising the profile of sanitation and thus attracting the assistance and investments needed to make progress. Noting that tremendous efforts over the past two decades have had little impact on sanitary conditions for much of the world, the book ...

  • Ecosystem Organization of a Complex Landscape

    This volume provides a synthesis of long-term ecological analyses in the Bornhöved Lake District as a representative landscape of northern Germany. The emphasis is on the comprehensive assessment of matter and energy fluxes in and between the terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and their biocoenotic structures and dynamics on the one hand, and on ...

  • Pelagic Nutrient Cycles

    This volume elucidates the interactions between pelagic food web processes and element cycling in lakes. Some findings are examined in terms of classical concepts from the ecological theory of predator-prey systems. Special emphasis is given to exploring how stoichiometric relationships between primary producers and herbivores influence the ...

  • Marine Benthic Vegetation

    Increasing amounts of various types of wastes and pollutants including nutrients enter the coastal waters via rivers, direct discharges from land drainage systems, diffuse land runoff, dumping and via the atmosphere. This has led to coastal eutrophication and in extreme cases to hypertrophication. Until recently, coastal eutrophication and the ...

  • Eutrophication in Coastal Ecosystems

    Coastal eutrophication has been and still remains an important issue for the scientific community. Despite many efforts to mitigate coastal eutrophication, the problems associated with eutrophication are still far from being solved. This book focusses on the most recent scientific results in relation to specific eutrophication issues, e.g. ...
