    Wastewater Treatment: Preliminary and Primary DVD

    Water comes in many forms: groundwater, surface water, drinking water, wastewater, stormwater, or dual use and reuse. Some forms may need greater treatment than others, depending on where it is discharged or how it is used.This informative DVD provides a general wastewater overview that also discusses preliminary and primary treatment, and how ...

  • 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 ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emission and Mitigation in Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants

    The wide adoption of wastewater treatment processes and use of novel technologies for improvement of nitrogen and phosphorus removals from wastewater have been introduced to meet stringent discharge standards. Municipal wastewater treatment plants (MWWTPs) are one of major contributors to the increase in the global GHG emissions and therefore it ...

  • India Water Markets: Opportunities for wastewater treatment in a tougher regulatory climate

    The new NDA government in India is set to put a stop to water pollution.

Industrial water is the fastest growing sector of the global water market but with each industry facing substantial challenges in their business, including tighter water quality standards, new ...

  • Making Space for the River

    This book examines recent developments in river (flood) management from the viewpoint of Making Space for the River and the resulting challenges for water governance. Different examples from Europe and the United States of America are discussed that aim to ‘green’ rivers, including increasing river discharge for flood management, enhancing natural ...

  • Research Digest - Infiltration vs. Surface Water Discharge: Guidance for Stormwater Managers

    Urban stormwater runoff contributes to the degradation of receiving surface waters and groundwater. This degradation is caused both by the increased flows that result from urbanization (i.e., the conversion of land surfaces from being infiltration zones to impervious zones) and by the pollutants (chemical and microbiological) that are carried by ...

  • Sediments Contamination and Sustainable Remediation

    A comprehensive resource on contaminated sediments, this book opens with discussions of the contamination of sediments resulting from discharge of pollutants, excessive nutrients, and other hazardous substances from anthropogenic activities. It examines impacts observed as a result of these discharges, including the presence of hazardous materials ...

  • Water Pollution IX

    The environmental problems caused by the increase of pollutant loads discharged into natural water bodies necessitate setting up a framework for regulation and control. This framework needs to be based on scientific results that relate pollutant discharges with changes in water quality.This volume contains papers presented at the ninth ...

  • Improving Municipal Wastewater Management in Coastal Cities

    In many parts of the world sewage is discharged directly into open water without treatment, threatening productivity and biodiversity of the world’s oceans and causing serious human health problems. In response the UNEP/GPA has developed training for municipal wastewater managers, jointly with the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education and ...

  • Guidelines on Municipal Wastewater Management

    The Guidelines on Municipal Wastewater Management are a practical guide for decision-makers and professionals on how to plan, design, and finance appropriate and environmentally sound municipal wastewater discharge and treatment systems. It contains chapters on (i) an enabling policy environment for sustainable wastewater management, (ii) ...

  • Oil in the Sea III: Inputs, Fates, and Effects

    Since the early 1970s, experts have recognized that petroleum pollutants were being discharged in marine waters worldwide, from oil spills, vessel operations, and land-based sources. Public attention to oil spills has forced improvements. Still, a considerable amount of oil is discharged yearly into sensitive coastal environments.Oil in the Sea ...

  • IE-ESCGIC Vol. I Textile Industry Effluent Discharge Standards

    This set of compendiums deals with establishing environmental standards and guidelines for effluent or air emission, which is an important first step for countries concerned about regulating industrial activites as part of their environmental pollution control strategies.Establishing environmental standards and guidelines for effluent u air ...

  • 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 ...

  • Modelling of Environmental Chemical Exposure and Risk

    Mathematical models are being increasingly used to estimate the concentrations of a wide range of substances in the environment for a variety of reasons, including government control and legislation, and risk and hazard estimation. Exposure assessment has to be performed for many types of substances, including pesticides, industrial ...

  • Turbulent Jets and Plumes

    Jets and plumes are shear flows produced by momentum and buoyancy forces. Examples include smokestack emissions, fires and volcano eruptions, deep sea vents, thermals, sewage discharges, thermal effluents from power stations, and ocean dumping of sludge. Knowledge of turbulent mixing by jets and plumes is important for environmental control, ...

  • Long Term Hillslope and Fluvial System Modelling
