This book provides a practical guide for plant managers, operators and consultants to the equipment and techniques available for improving the standard of effluent discharges from factories and treatment plant, to comply with the tougher discharge limits that the regulatory bodies now require.
The book reviews both established techniques, showing how to maximise their potential, and new ones, providing a wide range of options from upgrading present plant to trying something new, but with a high chance of success first time.
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 the 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 plant.
