Vertical Flow Constructed Wetlands book cover

Vertical Flow Constructed Wetlands

Eco-engineering Systems for Wastewater and Sludge Treatment

Vertical flow constructed wetlands for wastewater and sludge treatment represent a relatively new and still growing technology. Vertical Flow Constructed Wetlands is the first book to present the state-of-the-art knowledge regarding vertical flow constructed wetlands theory and applications. In this book, you will learn about vertical flow systems with information about application and performance. Vertical Flow Constructed Wetlands also includes information on how different countries are applying the technology, with design guidelines to illustrate best practices worldwide. A focus on water conservation through reuse of treated water showcases the benefit of vertical flow construction, which has greatly increased the attractiveness of the technology in recent years.

Environmental scientists and engineers, researchers in wastewater treatment, Wastewater/Water Treatment Plant Operators and Contractors, Sustainable wastewater/water managers, NGOs
