Ozonation of Water and Waste Water: A Practical Guide to Understanding Ozone and its Applications

The premier guide to ozonation technology is published by Wiley-VCH. Ozonation of Water and Waste Water shows how to master this cost-effective and environmentally benign process, which has an increasingly wide application range in the chemical and environmental engineering industries.

Ozone is fast becoming the preferred water treatment, replacing existing chlorine-based water treatment on a large scale. Since its European origins in the 1990s, the technology has now entered the U.S. and Asian markets. Ozonation is effective against a range of contaminants found in water, including microbes and toxic chemicals. It is far superior to other chemical purification methods in many technical processes, both in terms of environmental hazard and operating cost. Ozone can be generated from normal air 'on the spot'.

Ozonation of Water and Waste Water is the only complete guide to ozonation technology available. This authoritative resource contains the "how to" for engineers and environmental chemists who are exploring ozonation as a research or technical tool.  It contains just enough information for beginners, but goes rapidly to the detailed information that advanced readers need. It provides compact information on chemical mechanisms, equipment, and experimental design, modeling and kinetics of ozonation reactions. The book deals extensively with exemplary applications of ozonation that include, but also go far beyond, "standard" uses in drinking water and waste water treatment.

The leading resource for any chemical or environmental engineer, Ozonation of Water and Waste Water will also be invaluable to environmental and water chemists, biotechnologists, microbiologists, as well as public water agencies, and public health agencies.
