About this book

The highly successful and significant series of conferences organised by the IAWQ on large wastewater treatment plants continues to collect the best work on this topic from around the world. Designers, managers and scientists from over 35 countries gathered in Vienna to share their knowlege and experience on all aspects of the design and operation of large treatment plants and the best papers have been selected for these proceedings. Particular attention was paid to nutrient removal, including the upgrading of existing plants to meet higher standards, but papers also consider general design and management concepts, clarification, aeration, control and automation and sludge management. As the growing world population becomes increasingly concentrated in large cities, imposing severe challenges to water quality management, and the quality standards sought are driven to ever more stringent levels by our improved knowledge of the needs of the water environment, the optimisation of large wastewater treatment plants will remain a crucial objective.
