Reap the benefits of sludge The processing of wastewater sludge for use or disposal has been acontinuing challenge for municipal agencies. Yet, whensludge isproperly processed, the resulting nutrient-richproduct--biosolids--can be a valuable resource for agriculture andother uses. Wastewater Sludge Processing brings together a widebody of knowledge from the field to examine how to effectivelyprocess sludge to reap its benefits, yet protect publichealth. Presented in a format useful as both a reference for practicingenvironmental engineers and a textbook for graduatestudents, thisbook discusses unit operations used for processing sludge and theavailable methods for final disposition of the processed product.Topics discussed include sludge quantities and characteristics,thickening and dewatering, aerobicand anaerobic digestion, alkalinestabilization, composting, thermal drying and incineration, energyconsumption, and the beneficial use of biosolids. COMPREHENSIVE IN ITS COVERAGE, THE TEXT: * Describes new and emerging technologies as well as internationalmethods * Compares different types of sludge processing methods * Explains both municipal and industrial treatmenttechnologies Written by authors with decades of experience in the field,Wastewater Sludge Processing is an invaluable tool for anyoneplanning, designing, and implementing municipal wastewater sludgemanagement projects.
This Handbook is an authoritative reference for process and plant engineers, water treatment plant operators and environmental consultants. Practical information is provided for application to the treatment of drinking water and to industrial and municipal wastewater. The author presents material for those concerned with meeting government regulations, reducing or avoiding fines for violations, and making cost-effective decisions while producing a high quality of water via physical, chemical, and thermal techniques. Included in the texts are sidebar discussions, questions for thinking and discussing, recommended resources for the reader, and a comprehensive glossary. Two companion books by Cheremisinoff are available: Handbook of Air Pollution Control Technologies, and Handbook of Solid Waste Management and Waste Minimization Technologies. * Covers the treatment of drinking water as well as industrial and municipal wastewater * Cost-efficiency considerations are incorporated in the discussion of methodologies * Provides practical and broad-based information in one comprehensive source
FROM THE PREFACE This textbook explains and discusses many of the unit operations used for processing municipal sewage sludge. It also contains valuable information on the available methods for final disposition of this sludge. This textbook can be used for planning, designing, and implementing municipal sewage sludge management projects.
The 2011 edition of this report provides a strategic overview of the wastewater sludge market around the world, based on regional and country contributions. It looks at the current situation in terms of sludge generation, legislation, technology applied and management approaches, as well as outlining at anticipated developments over the short/medium term, including expected developments in terms of legislation and the technology and management solutions to be implemented. This is also complemented by longer term perspectives. --
Excreta and wastewater sludge are resources. Finding ways to put them to their best uses is part of developing sustainable human communities. But if not managed properly, excreta and sludge can be dangerous to human health and the environment. How to integrate theses opposing concepts is an ongoing worldwide challenge. This Atlas provides examples of how this challenge is addressed around the globe. The 59 reports provide insights into the similarities and differences in the management of excreta, wastewater, and biosolids in 37 countries. This compilation of information includes specific information from 19% of the member states of the United Nations, and includes representation of diverse countries and the full spectrum of management programs.
In the past, industrial wastewater treatment primarily focused on the removal of BOD and suspended solids. In recent years, however, the focus has changed to aquatic toxicity, priority pollutants, and volatile organics. This required changes in how we design and operate biological treatment plants. Many existing plants must be retrofitted. New approaches to meet new requirements are discussed in detail. The authors, with a combined experience of sixty years, have presented case studies for a wide variety of industrial wastewaters including pulp and paper, food processing, chemical and pharmaceuticals, and textile wastewaters. Data interpretation and process design are developed through the use of seventeen examples. Procedures for the laboratory and pilot plant generation of process design data are presented. Emphasis is placed on meeting the many new regulations governing industrial wastewater discharges.
