Advanced Oxidation Processes for Waste Water Treatment is a complete resource covering the fundamentals and applications of all Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs). Continuous progress in industrialization, transportation, and urbanization is creating regular pressure on the depleting freshwater resources in major parts of the world. Water pollution and the availability of clean freshwater is an ever-growing, global issue. Hazardous organic wastes resulting from industrial, domestic, hospital, and municipal effluents represent one of the greatest challenges to environmental managers and engineers. Various methods of wastewater treatment are available but are associated with a number of disadvantages. There is an urgent need to develop alternate methods that can deal with the problem of wastewater treatment in an eco-friendly manner. Here, AOPs enter the scene. AOPs have been defined as "near ambient temperature and pressure water treatment processes involving the generation of hydroxyl radicals in sufficient quantity to effect water purification". This hydroxyl radical is a powerful, non-selective and green chemical oxidant, which very rapidly attacks most organic contaminants. One of the AOPs, Photocatalytic oxidation, has already proved its efficiency at many pilot-scale applications. This book presents the most up-to-date research on AOPs and makes the argument that AOPs offer an eco-friendly method of wastewater treatment. In addition to an overview of the fundamentals and applications, it details the reactive species involved as well as reactor designs, helping readers to not only understand but also to implement these methods.
