Abstract

Sponsored by the Hazardous, Toxic, and Radioactive Waste Engineering Committee of the Environmental Council of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers Green Technologies for Sustainable Water Management describes science-based principles and technological advances behind green technologies that can be effective solutions to pressing environmental problems. Today’s challenge for sustainable water management is to develop environmentally friendly, economically viable, and energy-efficient processes for treating and preserving the world’s limited water resources. Successful approaches will provide a high removal-efficiency of pollutants and nutrient recovery while also reducing the carbon footprint, minimizing waste, and protecting human health and the environment. Following an overview of water as a valuable resource, this 28-chapter book provides in-depth information on current various green technologies associated with sustainable water and wastewater management. It considers various aspects of pollution prevention, control, remediation, and restoration. The applications of these technologies toward a sustainable society are considered, and needs for future research and development are identified. Researchers, students, scientists, engineers, government officials, and process managers will find this book an excellent source of comprehensive, state-of-the-art material on green technologies for sustainable water management.
