Arsenic abatement from groundwater in locations with a central water distribution system is relatively simple. The real challenge is selecting the most effective and affordable treatment and scale up option for locations which lack the appropriate infrastructure. Groundwater Arsenic Remediation: Treatment Technology and Scale UP provides the latest breakthrough groundwater treatment technologies and modeling and simulation methods for project scale up and eventually field deployment in locations which lack the proper central water distribution system to ensure arsenic free groundwater.

Key Features

  • Covers the different removal methods, such as chemical, adsorption, separation by membranes, and membrane distillation
  • Includes the state-of-the-art modeling & simulation methods for optimization and field deployment
  • Provides economic and comparative analysis of each arsenic treatment technology


Environmental Engineers, Civil Engineers, Environmental Engineering Technicians and Civil Engineering Technicians.
