About this book

This book brings together and integrates contributions on water quality modeling, monitoring and assessment techniques; wastewater treatment technologies; and sociological approaches in a single text. Divided into twenty chapters, it offers a comprehensive reference for students, professionals and researchers working on various aspects of water environment technology. 
The papers published in this book – selected from those presented at the 1st International Forum on Asian Water Environment Technology, held in 2013 in New Delhi, India – highlight the water environmental problems in Asia and respective countermeasures. This book addresses water quality requirements, emphasizing the factors that affect the water environment.  Treated wastewater as a new source of water is also examined, introducing readers to important aspects of water reuse. Selecting the most effective and proper wastewater treatment approach is actually the most essential part of generating a new water resource, as well as protecting the receiving water environments. Thus, the fundamental principles of wastewater treatment and monitoring are a major focus in this book, which is intended to help readers effectively address various water environmental problems in Asian countries.

Dr. Futoshi Kurisu is an associate professor at the Research Center for Water Environment Technology (RECWET), University of Tokyo. He received the excellent paper award for young scientists from the Japan Society of Civil Engineering in 2001. He has also won the Takeda Techno-Entrepreneurship Award and Kurita Excellent Research Award for Water and Environmental Studies, in 2002 and 2010, respectively. He has published more than 70 papers in peer-reviewed journals, and is a member of the Japan Society on Water Environment, Japan Society of Microbial Ecology, Japan Society of Civil Engineering, Japan Society of Environmental Biotechnology, Japan Society of Water Treatment Biology, International Water Association, and the International Society of Microbial Ecology. His current research interests are microbial enhancement of soil/groundwater bioremediation, microbial analysis of biological water/wastewater treatment processes, and water quality evaluation of water resources for reuse. Prof. AL. Ramanathan, Ph.D. in sedimentary geochemistry, is currently a Professor at the School of Environmental Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India. He is engaged in various aspects of coastal research, including nutrient dynamics, paleo environments, source identification etc., with a number of universities and research organizations in India, Australia, Russia, the USA, etc. He has supervised several Ph.D.’s in the areas above and published more than 60 papers in respected peer-reviewed journals. He has also published 5 books and several book chapters. He received three IFS Sweden (Project) Awards to work on Mangrove biogeochemistry, in addition to working on national and international Indo-Australian, Indo-Russian, DST, MoEF, and MoWR projects. He was a post-doctoral fellow in the STA Japan program, UGC-Russian Academy of Science program, CSIR, INSA, DST, etc. He is Chief Editor of the Journal of Climate Change, a member of the editorial board for the Indian Journal of Marine Sciences, and has served as a referee for many national and international journals. Dr. Absar Ahmad Kazmi is a Professor of Environmental Engineering at the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Roorkee. He received his Doctor of Engineering from the University of Tokyo in 1999. After working as a Project Engineer at Nishihara Environment Technology, Tokyo (1999-2004), he is now actively involved in teaching, research, consultancy and continuing education programs at the IIT Roorkee. He has received many awards and published more than 150 papers in peer-reviewed journals, in addition to book chapters and conference papers. He is a member and chairman of several committees of National and State Governments; most notables are the Ministry of Urban Development committee on the preparation of Design and O&M manuals on Sewage Treatment, the Ministry of Environment & Forests Research Advisory Committee, and the National Green Tribunal. He has chaired several conferences, engaged in several sponsored research projects and was involved in consultancy projects for various companies and organizations. Dr. Manish Kumar holds a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Tokyo, and is a faculty member at Tezpur Central University, Assam, India.
