Description

An Applied Guide to Water and Effluent Treatment Plant Design is the first book to bring together the design of process, wastewater, water, effluent and sludge plants. The author teaches this subject to professional engineers, so the book has a highly practical focus, with real world applications. It includes sections on how to carry out key steps in the process design of water and effluent treatment plants, with economic considerations in mind that are fully supported with worked examples and case studies. It is ideal for graduates, early career researchers and experienced engineers moving from a different sector into the water sector.

This book is compliant with both professional practice and IChemE degree accreditation guidelines. Computer tools discussed include Hysys and AutoCAD. Tools to assist in the creative process include What If Analysis features, statistical plugins and visual basic for more complex problems.

Key Features

  • Explains how to design water and effluent treatment plants that really work
  • Accessible introduction to, and overview of, the area that is written from a process engineering perspective
  • Covers new treatment technologies and the whole process, from treatment plant design, to commissioning

Readership

Graduate students and early career researchers in chemical engineering, plant designers

About the Author

Sean Moran

Professor Moran is a Chartered Chemical Engineer with twenty-five years’ experience in process design, commissioning and troubleshooting. He started his career with international process engineering contractors and worked worldwide on water treatment projects before setting up his own consultancy in 1996, specializing in process and hydraulic design, commissioning and troubleshooting of industrial effluent and water treatment plants. Sean was until 2015 an Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham, where he coordinated the design teaching program for chemical engineering students. He has now returned to engineering practice, specializing in forensic engineering in commercial disputes centering on plant design issues.
