Important topics:

  • Ecosystem approach in warm climates
  • Mechanized biological and physico-chemical treatment methods
  • Natural treatment methods―ponds, lagoons, constructed wetlands
  • Power-saving UASBs and decentralized systems
  • Resource recovery and reuse for creating new water resources
  • Reuse in industries and agriculture
  • Planning treatment plants

  • The last edition of this successful book dealt with disposal of wastewater for pollution control. The current edition, Wastewater Treatment for Pollution Control and Reuse has been thoroughly revised and extends the discussion to the many benefits and various methods for reusing wastewater. New chapters on reuse of wastewater and use of physico-chemical treatment methods, including membrane technologies that are critical for reuse, have been added.

    Besides the mechanized methods of wastewater treatment the authors have discussed other methods which are not only simple, natural and cost-effective, but also more dependable, especially in developing countries with warm weather. For example, the natural treatment methods-algal, hyacinth and duckweed ponds, and constructed wetlands which are now gaining worldwide acceptance.

    Besides new additions, the existing content has been significantly updated and made more meaningful to present day problems with the coverage of decentralized systems, sludge management, overall design of treatment plants and a thorough discussion of the factors that affect sustainable waste management.

    Very importantly, from their vast experience, the authors also describe how to retrofit sanitation in slums and shantytowns and outline methods to clean polluted water courses running through big cities and towns.

    Highlights:

  • Simpler, more cost-effective treatment methods
  • A new section on groundwater recharge
  • A special section on retrofitting sanitation in slums, shantytowns
  • Water conservation and reuse in industry and agriculture
  • Case studies of wastewater treatment plants
  • Design data with plenty of solved examples
  • Interesting topics for research and development

    Useful for:

  • Faculty and graduate students of environmental, civil and chemical engineering departments
  • Professionals from the industry, public bodies and consulting firms concerned with the control of water pollution and reuse of water
  • Pollution control agencies, municipal corporations and town planning departments
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

    About the Author:

    Soli J Arceivala pioneered the business of environmental consultancy in India in 1961, long before any legislation for pollution control existed. He founded the first consultancy company in India, called AIC, specializing in water and environmental engineering work. In 1993, the Company became AIC Watson, then Montgomery Watson and presently, MWH, with Prof Arceivala as Chairman and then Chairman Emeritus until 2001 when he retired. He holds a degree from Harvard University, USA, and is a member of several professional bodies.Professor Arceivala was the Regional Adviser for Environmental Health with the UN / WHO Regional Office for Europe, and was later the Chief for WHO South East Asia Region, covering 11 countries. Before joining WHO, he was the Director of the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI), Nagpur, Government of India, and before that Vice-Principal, VJTI, Mumbai. He is involved in teaching, research and consultancy work. He pioneered water conservation and reuse in various Indian industries in the mid-sixties and several plants for reuse of water have been built in India and the Middle East based on his designs. In recent years, he has worked on developing reuse of water for augmenting water resources for community uses and exploring low-carbon technologies for waste treatment. Professor Arceivala is the author of seven books on environmental engineering, three published by McGraw Hill, of which one has been translated into Turkish and Iranian languages. His other books have been published by the Indian Water Works Association, the Indian Environmental Association and Marcel Dekker, New York.Every year, for 20 years, he has been invited to give lectures at IHE, Delft, Holland, on wastewater treatment. In 1993-1994, Prof Arceivala was the President of the Indian Water Works Association and in 1996 he was the President of the Indian Environmental Association. In 1998, he became the fi rst Indian to be awarded "Distinguished Membership" of the American Society of Civil Engineers, (ASCE), USA, in honour of his lifetime work in India and overseas. Several Indian organizations have also honoured him with awards.
