The Handbook of Environmental Engineering series addresses topics across the entire spectrum of environmental engineering using a unique approach to environmental pollution. In this volume, Advanced Physicochemical Treatment Technologies, cutting-edge processes and technologies for water pollution control and water purification are presented. Practicing engineers and designers, as well as professors and students of environmental engineering, will benefit immensely from the forward-looking strategies and advanced treatment technologies discussed in this volume. This volume, along with Volumes 3 and 4 of the series, provides comprehensive and exhaustive coverage of available physicochemical treatment processes and technologies. The editors and contributing authors of Advanced Physicochemical Treatment Technologies have included up-to-date references, cost data, design methods, expert guidance on installation and operation of various process equipment and systems, and Best Available Technologies (BAT) for environmental pollution control, wastewater treatment, and water purification.
