A book on wastewater and biosolids treatment technologies provides industry readers with a general working knowledge of the technologies available today.

Sept. 23, 2002 -- Wastewater and Biosolids Treatment Technologies: The Comprehensive Reference for Plant Managers and Operators provides readers with a general working knowledge of the equipment and technologies available for treating wastewater, biosolids, and sludge and improving water quality.

This desk reference makes researching and referencing treatment options quick and easy. Users can select information on 36 different technologies and issues by either paging through the alphabetized collection of descriptions or by referencing the matrixes provided at the beginning of the book.

The two Technology Selection Matrixes provide an "at a glance" chart of what technology options are appropriate for water treatment applications and what technology options are appropriate for sludge and biosolids applications.

Written from a technical engineering perspective, the technology descriptions in Wastewater and Biosolids Treatment Technologies cater to current and aspiring environmental professionals by including chemical diagrams, advanced instructions, and detailed diagrams of technology equipment.

Each description also includes the general background for the technology, procedures, advantages, disadvantages, health hazards, applications, applicable laws and regulations, design considerations, equipment options, and operations for each. In addition, each description ends with a list of resources for additional information.

As a bonus feature, this book also includes a comprehensive glossary of more than 1,100 terms used in wastewater and biosolids/sludge treatment operations.

Wastewater and Biosolids Treatment Technologies covers the following technologies: aerobic digestion, anaerobic digestion, bar screen, belt filter press, biofilms, biosolids, carbon adsorption, chemical stabilization, chlorination, chlorine dioxide disinfection, clarification, coalescers, dewatering, disinfection with interhalogens and halogen mixtures, filter aids, filter media, filtration, flotation, gravity thickener, ion exchange, membrane separation technologies, microscreening, nitrification, oil/water separators, ozonation, rotary vacuum filtration, rotating biological contractors, sedimentation, sludge conditioning, sludge stabilization, sprinkling filtration process, thermal dewatering, trickling filters, volume reduction, waterborne diseases, and wet air oxidation.
