Membrane technology for water and wastewater treatment, by A.F. Ismail, Takeshi Matsuura

By A.F. Ismail, Takeshi Matsuura

Realizing that water, strength and foodstuff are the 3 pillars to maintain the expansion of human inhabitants sooner or later, this booklet offers with the entire above facets with specific emphasis on water and effort. specifically, the ebook addresses functions of membrane technological know-how and expertise for water and wastewater remedy, strength and setting. The readers also are provided a glimpse into the swiftly turning out to be R & D actions within the ASEAN and the center East areas which are rising because the subsequent iteration R & D facilities of membrane applied sciences, specially as a result of their want of know-how for water and wastewater remedy. accordingly, this e-book should be valuable not just for the engineers, scientists, professors and graduate scholars who're engaged within the R & D actions during this box, but additionally when you have an interest within the sustainable improvement of those nation-states. hence, it really is believed that the publication will open up new avenues for the institution of world collaborations to accomplish our universal objective of welfare of the human society.

Chemistry Fundamentals Of Environmental Chemistry

Basics of Environmental and Toxicological Chemistry: Sustainable technology, Fourth version covers university-level environmental chemistry, with toxicological chemistry built-in through the ebook. This re-creation of a bestseller presents an up to date textual content with an elevated emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly chemistry.

Bioremediation of Petroleum Hydrocarbons in Cold Regions

This sensible consultant to bioremediation in chilly areas is designed to help environmental practitioners, undefined, and regulators within the remediation of petroleum spills and infected websites in chilly areas. Remediation layout and expertise utilized in temperate climates doesn't unavoidably paintings in chilly climates, and cleanup takes longer as a result of shorter remedy seasons, sub-freezing temperatures, flooring freezing and thawing, and restricted bioactivity.

Biotechnology of Aroma Compounds (Advances in Biochemical Engineering Biotechnology)

Discussing the biotechnology of aroma compounds, this paintings contains insurance of: enzymes and flavour biotechnology; glycoconjugated aroma compounds - occurence, position and biotechnological transformation; and clients for the bioengineering of isoprenoid biosynthesis.

Nanotechnology in Electrocatalysis for Energy

This ebook specializes in nanotechnology in electrocatalysis for power purposes. specifically the publication covers nanostructured electrocatalysts for low temperature gasoline cells, low temperature electrolyzers and electrochemical valorization. The functionality of this ebook is to supply an creation to simple ideas of electrocatalysis, including a evaluate of the most sessions of fabrics and electrode architectures.

Part VI is dedicated to various applications of membrane separation processes concerning energy, environment and food. The first one is for microbial fuel cell application (Chapter 25). The second and third chapters are for membranes used in the organic environment. Polyphenyl sulfone membrane is used for the separation of dye from methanol (Chapter 26) and a review is made on degumming and deacidification of vegetable oils by membrane processes (Chapter 27). The last chapter is for the fabrication of electro-spun nanofiber membrane, a novel membrane that can be used for various applications (Chapter 28).

Wastewater from palm oil (Chapter 10) and rubber industries (Chapter 11), typical for Malaysia, was treated by ultrafiltration (UF)/NF and ceramic UF membrane, respectively. Application of membrane separation technology for biodiesel processing is reviewed (Chapter 12). Part III is for modeling concerning water and wastewater treatment. Mathematical models were developed for NF based deionization process (Chapter 13). The Monte Carlo method was applied to simulate MD process (Chapter 14). Finally, drying in the multilayer formation of ceramic membrane was simulated by a mathematical model (Chapter 15).

The book also reflects upon those in the Middle East region, where the research on water treatment is growing due to scarcity of water. Thus, it is believed that the book will open up a new avenue for the establishment of global collaborations to achieve our common goal of the welfare of human society. Part I is for the development of novel separation membranes for water and wastewater treatment. The membranes were fabricated either by blending of different polymers (Chapters 1 and 2) or incorporation of nanoparticles (Chapter 3).
