(BQ) Part 4 book "Membranes for industrial wastewater recovery and Re-use" has contents: Computer-Aided design for reverse osmosis plant, water pinch analysis, design examples, flag fen high purity water production plant, automotive water recycling, reference material,... and other contents.
There is increasing political and environmental pressure on industry to clean up the water which it uses in many processes, and to re-use this water where possible. This cleaning is done using specially-developed industrial membranes and this book covers the types and design of membranes, how they work and in which industries they are used. Special attention is paid to the textile, food/ beverage, pharmaceutical, oil and pulp and paper industries where such membranes are in regular use.
On average, one ton of hazardous waste per person is generated annually
by industries in the United States. Before the Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act of 1984, hazardous wastes were improperly disposed of into
the environment without any regulation. As a result, remediation of these
contaminated sites and management of the ongoing hazardous waste sources
are two major tasks to be achieved by treatment technologies.
Sewage sludge as an uncalled for product of wastewater treatment poses the challenge to
society of disposing of it, but at the same time gives us the opportunity of beneficial use by
closing the cycle of nutrients: sludge derived from agricultural activity must return to soil if
a sustainable and ecologically sound management of these materials is desirable (SEQUI et
al. 2000). At present the major ways of disposing of sewage sludges are deposition, landfill
and incineration, only part of the sludges are used in agriculture. ...
Technology-based standards are designed to facilitate the use of known, effective,
demonstrated pollution prevention and control technologies. The release standards for
new and existing pulp mills in Alberta were adopted after evaluation of technologies and
wastewater treatment systems for Alberta pulp and paper mills, and top performing mills
throughout the United States and Europe (see Appendix 1). The data for European mills
are performance expectations and do not represent the regulatory standards that may be
