About this book

This volume offers a detailed overview of currently applied and tested wastewater treatment technologies and the integration of advanced processes to remove trace organic contaminants and microorganisms. It discusses the potential of enhanced biological treatment to produce effluent suitable for reuse, new processes for urban wastewater disinfection and the reduction of antibiotic resistant bacteria, as well as the effect of advanced oxidation processes on wastewater microbiome and chemical contaminants. It also presents membrane bioreactors, moving bed bioreactors, light and solar driven technologies, ozonation and immobilised heterogeneous photocatalysis and provides an evaluation of the potential of constructed wetlands integrated with advanced oxidation technologies to produce wastewater safe for reuse. Furthermore, the volume discusses water reuse issues and standards, the status of membrane bioreactors applications, and the treatment of reverse osmosis concentrate for enhanced water recovery during wastewater treatment. Finally, it presents recent developments in potable water reuse and addresses various important issues in this framework, like the proper protection of public health, reliability and monitoring. This volume is of interest to experts, scientists and practitioners from various fields of research, including analytical and environmental chemistry, toxicology and environmental and sanitary engineering, as well as treatment plant operators and policymakers.

Reviews

“This book is recommended for people who deal with wastewater treatment and the reuse of reclaimed water at different levels: researchers, planners, designers, water managers, and administrators. … aims to fill the void in the literature regarding the abilities of well-known and applied technologies to remove emerging contaminants and microorganisms. … contributions from experienced authors also tackles the most promising measures to be recommended for improving the removal of (still unregulated) emerging contaminants in current urban wastewater treatment plants worldwide.” (Paola Verlicchi, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 409, 2017)
