Water and Wastewater Treatment Technologies



Nowadays due to urbanization and industrialization, several pollutants and its derivatives are discharged into water environment. Most of the pollution is caused by organics, nutrients, and contaminants with low concentration but is highly toxic to human and aquatic environment. Especially, there are several micropollutants and its derivatives that exist in water and wastewater such as disinfection by-product (DBPs), endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs), pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), antibiotics, pesticides, heavy metals, etc. This book provides holistic approach in terms of measurement, monitoring, and recent advanced treatment technologies for water and wastewater treatment and water reuse. The technologies involve the novel physio-chemical, biological and advanced oxidation processes in which they are modified processes or coupled with nanomaterials and/or newly developed products for improving the performance of the current treatment processes. In addition, the membrane processes include recent research on the removal of challenging chemicals by various membrane bioreactors and reverse osmosis processes, and emerging techniques for evaluating membrane integrity and membrane fouling propensity.
