Wiley is pleased to announce the publication of the 5th Edition of the classic text White's Handbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants. Last published in 1998, this 5th Edition is a major revision and covers all the significant changes and advances made in the field.
Water used for drinking and cooking should be free of pathogenic microorganisms that cause such diseases as typhoid fever, dysentery, cholera, and gastroenteritis. The elimination of these disease-causing microorganisms requires disinfection, the most commonly used method being chlorination. Although, when combined with filtration, chlorination is an excellent way to disinfect drinking water supplies, it does produce byproducts. The development of alternate disinfectants is therefore a priority, with research focusing on advances made using ozone and ultraviolet radiation.
White's Handbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants, 5th Edition is a thorough reference on the use of chlorine, chlorine dioxide, ozone, peroxone bromine, bromine chloride, iodine, and ultraviolet radiation in water and wastewater treatment. For each disinfectant, the book gives its chemistry, effectiveness, dosing, equipment, and system design requirements, and explains the advantages and disadvantages of use. Most importantly it covers the regulatory requirements of using these disinfectants, plus the potential impacts of the end use of the disinfected water.
Carrying the authority of the leading global engineering company Black & Veatch, this 5th Edition covers all the changes that have occurred in chlorine production, as well as all the significant advances with alternative disinfectants such as UV and ozone
Continuing the tradition of combining theory and practice, White's Handbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants, 5th Edition is a truly comprehensive and up-to-date handbook for all water professionals and wastewater engineers, as well as for the many academics involved in research in this area.
