Description

Modular Treatment Approach for Drinking Water and Wastewater explores the most up-to-date studies in the field of treating water. More specifically, this book examines the need for this modular treatment approach and identifies the techniques to provide clean water worldwide. Through three contributed sections, this book presents the new approach of tackling the demand for a high quality, economic, and green water treatment system. This modular strategy, presented in the book, allows for a customized retrofit solution to constantly changing parameters of the urban water, that is to be treated. The advanced treatment modules can be added or removed, depending on the current demand and requirements.

Modular Treatment Approach for Drinking Water and Wastewater summarizes the principles of modular design, as well as the current developments and perspectives regarding the usage of modular approach in urban water treatment. The chapters include global case studies, flow diagrams and charts to provide the reader with the tools they need to implement these techniques in their own work. As such, this book is a must have for Researchers, students and professors working in water and wastewater.

Key Features

  • Presents the whole life cycle of a modular treatment approach, a huge aspect for the environmental research market, and currently not presented in whole in any other text
  • Includes global case studies, detailing the methods needed and the results possible for these treatment approaches
  • Provides flow charts and diagrams, giving the reader a step by step guide to implement these techniques

Readership
