Synopsis:
Water and chemical engineers and environmental scientists explore three approaches to dealing with the excess sludge generated during the microbial treatment of wastewater. Their topics include fundamentals of biological processes for wastewater treatment, an oxic-settling-anaerobic process for enhanced microbial decay, minimizing excess sludge production through membrane bioreactors and integrated processes, microbial fuel cell technology for sustainable treatment of organic wastes and electrical energy recovery, and aerobic granular sludge technology for wastewater treatment.

  Title:  Wetlands for tropical applications : wastewater treatment by constructed wetlands
Editor:  Tanaka, Norio.
Call number:  TD756.5.W539

Contents:
This book provides a systematic exposition of the design features of constructed wetlands, and their management (in terms of siting, physical maintenance, and operation). Only very few books (or chapters) have been published on constructed wetlands in tropical conditions and none are current. The selection of plant species, managing their growth and harvesting cycles, and the impact these have on the attenuation of organic and inorganic pollutants, nutrients, and pathogens would be of interest to students and practitioners of the art working under tropical conditions. The potential of constructed wetlands as a low-cost intervention for developing countries in tropical regions that faced water pollution problems, in particular, deserves to be explored systematically.

Synopsis:
Written by experts in the field, this thoroughly updated third edition covers commonly used and emerging suspended and attached growth reactors. Drawing on their extensive academic and industrial experience, the authors discuss combined carbon and ammonia oxidation, activated sludge, biological nutrient removal, aerobic digestion, anaerobic processes, lagoons, trickling filters, rotating biological contactors, fluidized beds, and biologically aerated filters. They integrate the principles of biochemical processes with applications in the real world, communicating approaches to the conception, design, operation, and optimization of biochemical unit operations in a comprehensive yet lucid manner.
