Microbial granules have practical importance in anaerobic and aerobic biological wastewater treatment. Advantages of granules are retention of biomass in reactor, diversity of microorganisms, complex structure, and resistance to unfavorable conditions. Microbial granules can be used to treat municipal and industrial wastewater for removal of organic matter, xenobiotics, nutrients, and heavy metals. The book covers almost all aspects of formation and use of microbial granules in wastewater treatment. The data on aerobic microbial granulation are related mostly to laboratory systems due to few pilot systems in the world using aerobic microbial granules. However, by the analogy with anaerobic granulation, which is now used worldwide, it is possible to predict wide applications of aerobic granulation. This book will help researchers and engineers develop these new biotechnologies of wastewater treatment based on aerobic granulation. Covers all aspects of formation, organization, and use of microbial granules in wastewater treatment Integrates engineering, microbiology, and biotechnology of microbial granules Comprises of deep fundamental data as well as practical information for applications of microbial granules in wastewater treatment

Strategies of Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management by Nelson L. Nemerow and Frank J. Agardy For years, plant engineers, engineering professors, municipal engineers, EPA personnel, and other professionals have relied on the expertise of these authors in the area of industrial and hazardous waste management. This book is full of new ideas, methods, models, data, updated information, and new case histories. This latest classic reference from Nelson Nemerow and Frank Agardy is by far the most comprehensive and useful source available on the generation, treatment, and disposal of all significant industrial and hazardous wastes. Strategies of Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management addresses the needs of its wide-ranging audience by dividing its coverage into four parts: Part I presents the basic information the industrial waste engineer needs to know about the environmental impact of various wastes, writing environmental impact statements, protecting streams from further pollution, calculating final treatments, testing treatment efficiency, and the influence of economic factors on waste treatment decisions. Part II explores theories and designs of waste treatment, and shows how waste can be reduced through proper operation of manufacturing plants. It ranges beyond the removal of suspended and colloidal solids to include coverage of neutralization, equalization and proportioning, removal of inorganic dissolved salts, and private contract collection and treatment. Also included is a novel paradigm for obtaining zero pollution in the future through environmentally balanced industrial complexes. Part III demonstrates waste management in action, using case studies from around the world to show theories and models successfully adapted and put into practice. All cases are based on the authors' actual experiences--the cases in Chapters 17, 19, 22, 23, and 24 have never been previously published. Part IV offers concise evaluations of all major liquid Industrial wastes, including their origins, characteristics, and acceptable treatments. Industries are classified into six categories: apparel, food processing, materials, chemicals, energy, and (in significantly extended coverage) non-point practices. Included are separate considerations of radioactive and hazardous (as opposed to conventional) waste. No waste-management professional should be without this essential volume. Focused on need-to-know information, common pitfalls, and practical solutions to all kinds of problems, Strategies of Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management is an answer source unlike any other.

Agro-industries play a major role in the world's economy and at the same time are major contributors to the worldwide industrial pollution problem. With the tremendous pace of technological development substantial research is devoted to coping with wastes of ever increasing complexity generated by agro-industries. This symposium was a pioneering effort to provide a dynamic and comprehensive approach to appropriate waste management and encourage further efforts. Subjects discussed covered a significant group of industrial activities based on agricultural means or products, such as textile, pulp and paper, leather, food, sugar, edible oil, beverage and animal farming. Major issues addressed include waste characterization and categorization, problems of effluent quality management, control and treatment technologies, pretreatment, problems in hot and cold climates, energy recovery and reuse systems and sludge utilization and disposal.

The continuously increasing human population, has resulted in a huge demand for processed and packaged foods. As a result of this demand, large amounts of water, air, electricity and fuel are consumed on a daily basis for food processing, transportation and preservation purposes. Although not one of the most heavily polluting, the food industry does contribute to the increase in volume of waste produced as well as to the energy expended to do so. For the first time, nine separate food industry categories are thoroughly investigated in Waste Management for the Food Industries in an effort to help combat this already acute problem. The current state of environmental management systems is described, offering comparisons of global legislation rarely found in other resources. An extensive review of commercial equipment, including advantages and disadvantages per employed waste management technique, offers a unique perspective for any academic, student, professional, and/or consultant in the food, agriculture and environmental industries. Thoroughly examines the most prevalent and most polluting industries such as Meat, Fish, Dairy, Olive Oil, Juice and Wine industries Includes synoptical tables [methods employed, physicochemical or microbiological parameters altered after treatment etc] and comparative figures of the effectiveness of various waste management methods Contains nearly 2500 of the most up-to-date references available
