Book Description :

The high rate of industrialization around the world has led to an increase in the rate of anthropogenic activities which involves the release of different types of contaminants into the aquatic environment generating high environmental risks, which could affect health and socio-economic activities if not treated properly. There is no doubt that the rapid progress in improving the water quality and management has been motivated by the latest developments in green chemistry. Over the past decade, sources of water pollutants and the conventional methods used for the treatment of industrial wastewater treatment has flourished. Water quality and its adequate availability have been a matter of concern worldwide particularly in developing countries. According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, more than 80% of diseases are owing to the consumption of contaminated water. Heavy metals are highly toxic that are a potential threat for water, soil, and air, their consumption in higher concentrations provided hazardous outcomes. The water quality is usually measured keeping in mind chemical, physical, biological, and radiological standards. The discharge of the effluent by industries contains heavy metals, hazardous chemicals, and a high amount of organic and inorganic impurities those can contaminate the water environment, and hence, human health. Therefore, it is our primary responsibility to maintain the water quality in our respective countries. This book provides understanding, occurrence, identification, toxic effects and control of water pollutants in aquatic environment using green chemistry protocols. It focuses on water remediation properties and processes including industry-scale water remediation technologies. This book covers recent literature on remediation technologies in preventing water contamination and its treatment. Chapters in this book discuss remediation of emerging pollutants using nanomaterials, polymers, advanced oxidation processes, membranes, and microalgae bioremediation, etc. It also includes photochemical, electrochemical, piezoacoustic, and ultrasound techniques. It is a unique reference guide for graduate students, faculties, researchers and industrialists working in the area of water science, environmental science, analytical chemistry, and chemical engineering.
