Authored by two highly competent experts in the field, this monograph provides comprehensive coverage of the technology, beginning with the fundamentals, via full-scale applications in water and wastewater treatment and concluding with a look at future needs for research and development. In so doing, they provide both an introduction to the topic as well as a detailed discussion of theoretical and practical considerations.
After a brief review of the basics involved in the chemistry, biology and technology of the process, they discuss the setup of treatment facilities, both on the pilot and full-operation scale, covering both powdered as well as granular filter systems in detail. They discuss all the factors that influence the successful operation of the treatment process in practical terms, from dimensioning of the filter to the effects of environmental conditions, to the monitoring of filter efficiency and filter regeneration.
A truly valuable resource for analytical, environmental, water and soil chemists, as well as professionals working in water treatment.
