The Handbook of Environmental Engineering series addresses topics across the entire spectrum of environmental engineering using a unique approach to environmental pollution. Biosolids Treatment Processes, Volume 6 presents the best available solutions for managing biosolids that are generated in wastewater treatment plants and ensuring the beneficial use of waste. Like the other books in this comprehensive handbook series, this volume was developed as an inclusive reference, and contains detailed design examples for practicing engineers, environmental students, librarians and researchers. Students at the graduate and undergraduate level, designers of water and wastewater treatment systems, and scientists and researchers in the field of environmental engineering will all find that this volume provides the framework both for advanced study and for specialized investigation into the theory and practice of individual biosolids management systems.

From the reviews: "This tome comprises 23 chapters of unequal length written by an ensemble of 20 authors ! . This book will be extremely useful to advanced undergraduate and graduate students -- and I should also add to their teachers, preceptors and mentors --of civil and environmental engineering, to designers of wastewater treatment, biosolids and sludge treatment systems, and to scientists and researchers dealing with biosolids management operations." (J. G. LLaurado, Management of Environmental Quality, Vol. 19 (3), 2008)
