About this book

Conventional waste management technologies as adopted in leading industrialized nations tend to be expensive to build and operate and also make exacting operation and maintenance demands. Such characteristics are questionable in that context - for developing countries they are surely inappropriate. The search for what is appropriate is a key role for water scientists and engineers. Research and development efforts have increasingly sought waste treatment technologies which are compatible with local environmental and economic conditions and appropriate for semi-urban settlements, isolated communities and a variety of industrial simulations. This volume concentrates on recent advances in physico-chemical and biological treatment systems including hazardous waste management and common effluent treatment facilities. The 17 papers selected cover aerobic and anaerobic processes, industrial and domestic wastewaters, land disposal and water reuse. The focus throughout is on appropriateness and cost effectiveness in our quest for sustainable development.


Chapter headings and selected papers : Foreword. Anaerobic Treatment Systems . Hydrodynamics in the packed bed of the anaerobic fixed film reactor (H. Chua, J.P.C. Fung). Industrial Waste Treatment . Low cost wastewater treatment (P. Grau). Aerobic Treatment Systems . Evaporation phenomenon as a waste management technology (E.A. Duarte, I. Neto). Nutrient Removal and Control . Application of downflow floating medium flocculator/prefilter (DFF) - coarse sand filter (CSF) in nutrient removal (H.H. Ngo, S. Vigneswaran). Hazardous Waste Management . Clay liner materials for land disposal of hazardous non-metal wastes (I.M.-C. Lo et al .). Solid Waste Management-On-Site and Land Disposal . Aerobic thermophilic composting of piggery solid wastes (S.M. Rao Bhamidimarri, S.P. Pandey). Reuse, Recovery and Recycling . Treatment of silk and Lycra printing wastewaters with the objective of water reuse (S. Rigoni-Stern et al .). Kinetics of Waste Treatment .
