About this book

A prevalent and increasingly important issue, arsenic removal continues to be one of the most important areas of water treatment. Conventional treatment plants may employ several methods for removing arsenic from water including oxidation and sedimentation, coagulation and filtration, lime treatment, adsorption, ion exchange, and membrane filtration. However, in the most affected regions large conventional treatment plants may not be appropriate. This book provides a thorough analysis of the problems, solutions and possible alternatives to achieve safe water production on a global scale.
