This book provides a wide range of practical environmental engineering laboratory experiments for implementation by students in a university laboratory or by practicing professionals in the field, along with an extensive discussion on how to design an experiment that will provide meaningful and useful data, how to interpret the data generated from an experiment, and how to present those data to an audience of other students or professionals. The example experiments provide a way to evaluate a new design against an existing experiment to determine what information is most appropriate in each section and how to format the data for the most effective outcome
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.
Annotation Environmental engineering is a discipline that focuses on sustainability with the natural cycles of the earth in conjunction with the built environment. The discipline is also concerned with the protection of human health from adverse effect and the mitigation of adverse effects on the environment from the human populace. This book is intended as a reference for the graduate level scholar on selected topics and environmental engineering.
Bioremediation is an emerging field of environmental research. The objective of a bioremediation process is to immobilize contaminants (reactants) or to transform them into chemical products that do not pose a risk to human health and the environment.
Water dominates the surface of Earth and is vital to life on our planet. It is a remarkable liquid which shows anomalous behaviour. In this book, John Finney introduces the science of water, and explores how the structure of water molecules gives rise to its physical and chemical properties. Considering water in all three of its states as ice and steam as well as liquid, Finney explains the great importance of an understanding of it's structure and behaviour to a range of fields including chemistry, astrophysics, and earth and environmental sciences.
This book introduces readers to essential new concepts and practices and illustrates the future perspectives offered by a new paradigm for design and safety control in the context of wastewater reuse systems.
This book analyses 'zero-waste' as an emerging waste management strategy for the future, which considers waste prevention through innovative design and sustainable consumption practices. Drawing on a diverse range of case studies from Australia, Bangladesh, Japan, New Zealand, Sweden and the USA, this book explores why urban waste management systems still remain a major challenge for almost all cities around the world.
