Book Description :

Microbial granules have practical importance in anaerobic and aerobic biological wastewater treatment. Advantages of granules are retention of biomass in reactor, diversity of microorganisms, complex structure, and resistance to unfavorable conditions. Microbial granules can be used to treat municipal and industrial wastewater for removal of organic matter, xenobiotics, nutrients, and heavy metals. The book covers almost all aspects of formation and use of microbial granules in wastewater treatment. The data on aerobic microbial granulation are related mostly to laboratory systems due to few pilot systems in the world using aerobic microbial granules. However, by the analogy with anaerobic granulation, which is now used worldwide, it is possible to predict wide applications of aerobic granulation. This book will help researchers and engineers develop these new biotechnologies of wastewater treatment based on aerobic granulation. Covers all aspects of formation, organization, and use of microbial granules in wastewater treatment Integrates engineering, microbiology, and biotechnology of microbial granules Comprises of deep fundamental data as well as practical information for applications of microbial granules in wastewater treatment

Book Description :

Current wastewater treatment technologies are not sustainable simply due to their high operational costs and process inefficiency. Integrated Microbial Fuel Cells for Wastewater Treatment is intended for professionals who are searching for an innovative method to improve the efficiencies of wastewater treatment processes by exploiting the potential of Microbial Fuel Cells (MFCs) technology. The book is broadly divided into four sections. It begins with an overview of the "state of the art" bioelectrochemical systems (BESs) as well as the fundamentals of MFC technology and its potential to enhance wastewater treatment efficiencies and reduce electricity generation cost. In section two, discusses the integration, installation, and optimization of MFC into conventional wastewater treatment processes such as activated sludge process, lagoons, constructed wetlands, and membrane bioreactors. Section three outlines integrations of MFCs into other wastewater processes. The final section provides explorative studies of MFC integrated systems for large scale wastewater treatment and the challenges which are inherent in the upscaling process. Clearly describes the latest techniques for integrating MFC into traditional wastewater treatment processes such as activated sludge process, lagoons, constructed wetlands, and membrane bioreactors Discusses the fundamentals of bioelectrochemical systems for degrading the contaminants from the municipal and industrial wastewater Covers methods for the optimization of integrated systems

Book Description :

The Future of Effluent Treatment Plants: Biological Treatment Systems is an advanced and updated version of the existing biological technologies with their limitations and challenges and their potential application to remove chemical oxygen demand (COD), refractory chemical oxygen demand, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), colour removal and environmental pollutants through the advancements in microbial bioremediation. It also introduces the new trends and advances in environmental bioremediation with thorough discussions of the recent developments in this field by the application of bioengineering and environmental biotechnology. The book illustrates that that the application of these new emerging innovative technologies lead to energy saving and resource recovery. The importance of respiration, nitrogen mineralization, nitrification, denitrification and biological phosphorus removal processes in the development of a fruitful and applicable solution for the removal of toxic pollutants from wastewater treatment plants is highlighted. Equally important is the knowledge and theoretical modelling of water movement through the wastewater ecosystems. The understanding of the contact between the microbes and wastewater is a prerequisite for the kinetic modelling of various enzyme reactions to describe the water purification process. Emphasis is given to the function of constructed wetlands and activated sludge processes.

A practical guide to wastewater bacteria and the roles they performin wastewater treatment Communicating material in a practical manner for operators andtechnicians who regulate and troubleshoot their wastewatertreatment processes, Wastewater Bacteria discusses the effectivecontrol and proper operation of aerobic (activated sludge) andanaerobic (anaerobic digesters) biological treatment units toensure that an adequate, active, and appropriate population ofbacteria is present in each treatment unit. It is a hands-on guideto understanding the biology and biological conditions that occurat each treatment unit. Avoiding unnecessary technical jargon and chemical equations,Wastewater Bacteria, the fifth book in the Wastewater MicrobiologySeries, explores and explains: * Bacteria and the wastewater environment * Enzymes and sludge production * Nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur bacteria * Floc formation and filamentous organisms * Nitrification and denitrification * Sulfate reduction, fermentation, and methane production * Toxicity * Foam and malodor production The goal of Wastewater Bacteria is to enable plant operators toachieve the twofold basic objectives of wastewater treatment-todegrade organic wastes to a level where a significant, dissolvedoxygen demand is not exerted upon receiving waters and to removenutrients to levels where photosynthetic organisms in receivingwaters are limited in their growth. This straightforward manualequips plant technicians to meet these objectives with essentialinformation to understand the biological processes and organismsinvolved in wastewater treatment.

Book Description :

Biological Wastewater Treatment Systems Theory and Operation N. J. Horan University of Leeds UK The increasing concern being voiced about the destruction and pollution of our environment has led to a growing awareness worldwide of the need for more effective sewage treatment. The contribution of sewage, treated effluents and sewage sludges to the spread of disease is now being quantified, emphasizing the vital need for improved sanitation and wastewater treatment facilities. Biological Wastewater Treatment Systems introduces basic concepts of microbial growth and reactor engineering which are required to understand fully the rational design and operation of wastewater treatment systems. It considers both conventional and low cost treatment options and describes the relative importance of organic, nutrient and pathogen removal. The ability of each unit operation to achieve these is discussed in detail. Topics covered include wastewater characteristics and the effects of its discharge on receiving waters; process fundamentals; microorganisms exploited in wastewater treatment; and microbial energy generation. The book brings together the three major disciplines of Microbiology, Chemistry and Engineering into a format which can be understood by engineers with no biological background and biologists who have little understanding of the processes employed for the treatment of sewage. It will be useful for senior first degree students in civil, environmental and wastewater engineering and biological science, as well as those following more advanced courses in environmental pollution control and tropical public health engineering.
