Description

Legislation is now in place that demands high standards of effluent treatment and waste disposal, both industrial and domestic.


This book provides plant managers, operators and consultants with a practical guide to the equipment and techniques available for improving the standard of effluent discharges from factories and treatment plants, to comply with the tougher discharge limits that the regulatory bodies now require.


The book reviews both established and new techniques and shows how to maximise their potential by providing a wide range of options. Success the first time around is emphasized.


The text concentrates on minimising waste and maximising savings, including recycling. Practicality and simplicity of approach are stressed, with a range of case studies to demonstrate their approach.


The book has been updated to include a review of developments since the first edition was published and features a new chapter on cesspools, septic tanks and small treatment plants.
