Physical-chemical Treatment Of Water And Wastewater

RRP $357.99

The books currently available on this subject contain some elements of physical-chemical treatment of water and wastewater but fall short of giving comprehensive and authoritative coverage. They contain some equations that are not substantiated, offering empirical data based on assumptions that are therefore difficult to comprehend. This text brings together the information previously scattered in several books and adds the knowledge from the author's lectures on wastewater engineering.

Physical-Chemical Treatment of Water and Wastewater is not only descriptive but is also analytical in nature. The work covers the physical unit operations and unit processes utilized in the treatment of water and wastewater. Its organization is designed to match the major processes and its approach is mathematical. The authors stress the description and derivation of processes and process parameters in mathematical terms, which can then be generalized into diverse empirical situations. Each chapter includes design equations, definitions of symbols, a glossary of terms, and worked examples.

One author is an environmental engineer and a professor for over 12 years and the other has been in the practice of environmental engineering for more than 20 years. They offer a sound analytical mathematical foundation and description of processes. Physical-Chemical Treatment of Water and Wastewater fills a niche as the only dedicated textbook in the area of physical and chemical methods, providing an analytical approach applicable to a range of empirical situations


Wastewater Treatment Systems Based On Vascular Plants

The last book covering a part of this subject has come four years ago (Vymazal, J., and Kropfelova, L., 2008. Wastewater Treatment in Constructed Wetlands; Springer, New Yark) and the one prior to that six years ago (Crites R. W., Middlebrooks, E. O., and Reed, S. C., 2006, Natural Wastewater Treatment Systems; CRC Press, Boca Raton). Both are excellent treatises but neither covers systems based on 'nutrient film technique' even as it is in this segment that most spectacular advances are currently occurring. Moreover, the state-of-the-art in all systems has advanced significantly since these books came out. The proposed book would, therefore, be much more comprehensive as well as up-to-date.

Covers a topic of very great contemporary relevance

Will have a world-wide catchment

First of its kind since several years

It has a huge market waiting

Written by authors with established track record

Adds to the book's market appeal

High on substance

Its appeal will endure

Written in a lucid, clear, and compact style

Will enhance the book's visual appeal and user-friendliness


Membrane Bioreactors For Municipal Wastewater Treatment

RRP $48.00

Recent technical innovations and significant cost reductions have sharply increased the potential for using Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) technology in municipal wastewater treatment. MBR technology displays several advantages compared to the traditional activated sludge processes, such as high effluent quality, limited space requirement and with the possibility of a flexible and phased extension of existing waste water treatment plants. Membrane Bioreactors for Municipal Wastewater Treatment describes the results of a comparative research programme involving four leading membrane suppliers: Kubota (Japan), Mitsubishi (Japan), X-Flow (Netherlands) and Zenon (Canada). Each supplier provided a pilot to represent a suitable scale - right up to full scale. These pilots were operated and optimised in the course of the research programme to achieve the best operating window under different operating regimes. The research focussed on the functionality of the membrane, the biological treatment, membrane fouling, achieved effluent quality, and system operability as well as other factors. In a number of side studies the required pre-treatment, membrane fouling/cleaning, energy usage, effluent quality and sludge processing were also addressed. The comparative pilot research was carried out by DHV Water on location at the wastewater treatment plant at Beverwijk in the Netherlands.


A Long Walk To Water

RRP $16.95

Two young people, two stories. One country. Southern Sudan, 2008: Nya is going to the pond to fetch water for her family there and back, twice a day. She walks for eight hours every day to perform this seemingly simple task. Southern Sudan, 1985: Salva is walking away from his ruined village to find safety if there is any safety in his war-torn homeland. His journey across Africa to Ethiopia and then to Kenya and beyond will take many years. Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya's in an astonishing and moving way. This mesmerizing dual narrative by award-winning author Linda Sue Park is a fictionalised account of true events and shows us that in a troubled country, determined survivors may find the future they are hoping for.
