About this book

Wastewater treatment technology is undergoing a profound transformation due to far-reaching changes in regulations governing the discharge and disposal of hazardous pollutants. Electrochemistry for the Environment first lays down the fundamentals of environmental electrochemistry, introducing the basic techniques in selecting electrode materials and fabricating them, followed by the theoretical analysis of the electrochemical processes and the green electrochemical operation. Then it discusses the electrochemical technologies in water/wastewater treatment using BDD before moving on to an examination of the established wastewater treatment technologies such as electro-coagulation, -flotation, and-oxidation. Additionally, emerging technologies such as electrophotooxidation, electrodisinfection, and electrochemical technologies in sludge and soil treatment are analyzed. This book is an excellent reference for electrochemists, chemical engineers, environmental engineers, civil engineers, and also for those in industry evaluating and implementing new technologies.

About the authors

This 350 pages volume contains the contributions from 18 international experts on the key topics concerning environmental chemistry. It is co-edited by Dr. Chen and Prof. Comninellis. Dr. Chen has been working actively in this field for nearly 10 years and is currently an Editor of Separation and Purification Technology. Professor Comninellis is an international authority on environmental electrochemistry with over 30 years of experiences. He is the Chairman of the Electrochemical Process Division of  the International Society of Electrochemistry.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A … book focussing on electrochemical approaches to the protection of the environment is timely and to be welcomed. … The nineteen chapters in this book are all written by authors with broad experience of their topics … . All chapters are extensively referenced. I have no doubt that this book will be valuable to scientists and engineers presently working in the field or seeking to enter it.”­­­ (Derek Pletcher, Journal of Applied Electrochemistry, Vol. 40, 2010)
