Resource Recovery in Drinking Water Treatment (Paperback)
Resource Recovery in Drinking Water Treatment concentrates on techniques and methods for water purification. The book develops a new approach--resource recovery--toward drinking water, including the role of methods (adsorption, membrane, ion - exchange, biosorption, coagulation, etc.) and nanocomposites (such as biochar, sludge-based composites, chitosan, polymer, magnetic particles, etc.) in water resource recovery. It provides an in-depth overview on emerging water treatment techniques and the resource recovery of materials during the treatment process. Finally, the book aims to introduce polluted waters as new and sustainable sources rather than seeing wastewaters only a source of hazardous organic and inorganic matters.
This book is part of a three-volume set that stresses the importance of contaminated water remediation, including surface waters, municipal or industrial wastewaters, and waters as a new source of nutrients, minerals and energy.
