Contaminants of Emerging Concern in Water and Wastewater: Advanced Treatment Processes presents the state-of-the-art in the design and use of adsorbents, membranes, and UV/oxidation processes, along with the challenges that will need to be addressed to close the gap between development and implementation in water/wastewater treatment applications. Chapters cover adsorbent and membrane design and performance, direct comparison of performance data between new (inorganic and metal organic nanoporous materials) and classic adsorbents and membranes, a list of advantages, disadvantages, and challenges related to performance limitations, regenerability, and upscaling.
In addition, users will find sections on the identification of potential site and off-site applications that are listed according to adsorbent and membrane types, transformation of CECs in low- and/or medium-pressure UV irradiation processes used for disinfection, the oxidation of CECs by chlorine and ozone, and a comparison of advanced oxidation processes for the treatment of a variety of CECs in water and wastewater.
- Addresses the advantages/disadvantages of select technologies, including energy resource needs and waste management issues of reverse osmosis, amongst other issues
- Presents information on the advancements of technology within the realm of Engineered Treatments of CECs
- Focuses on the inherent science and technology of advanced treatment processes

Dr. Hernández-Maldonado created the first American Chemical Society national meeting symposia on “Occurrence, Fate and Removal of Pharmaceutical and Personal Care Products and Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals” in 2011. He also heads the Nanoporous Sorbent Synthesis and Adsorption Lab, which focuses in the bottom-up design and synthesis of porous adsorbent materials for purification and ultrapurification applications, including the removal of CECs.
Professor of Chemical Engineering, University of Puerto Rico – Mayaguez
Dr. Blaney heads the Blaney Laboratory which focuses on the intersection of environmental, analytical, organic, and inorganic chemistry. Primary research interests are the (1) fate, transport, and toxicity of contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) in natural and engineered systems and (2) recovery of vital resources to ensure sustainable development.
Assistant Professor, Department of Chemical, Biochemical and Environmental Engineering, University of Maryland Baltimore County
