Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Written by experts in the field, this thoroughly updated third edition covers commonly used and emerging suspended and attached growth reactors. Drawing on their extensive academic and industrial experience, the authors discuss combined carbon and ammonia oxidation, activated sludge, biological nutrient removal, aerobic digestion, anaerobic processes, lagoons, trickling filters, rotating biological contactors, fluidized beds, and biologically aerated filters. They integrate the principles of biochemical processes with applications in the real world, communicating approaches to the conception, design, operation, and optimization of biochemical unit operations in a comprehensive yet lucid manner.

Book News Annotation:

US and Canadian environmental and chemical engineers present the theoretical principles and design procedures for the biochemical operations used in wastewater treatment processes. They incorporate the considerable new knowledge about biological nutrient removal that has surfaced since the 1999 edition (first in 1980), and has led to new versions of the International Water Association's activated sludge models. A whole new chapter on anaerobic bio-reactors reflects the profession's increased understanding of anaerobic systems and the Association's anaerobic digestion model. After an introduction and background, they consider first the theory then applications of suspended and attached growth reactors. A final section looks to the future with chapters on the fate and effects of xenobiotic organic chemicals, and designing systems for sustainability.
