eISBN: 9781780408026

This book is a Spanish translation of Faecal Sludge Management: Systems Approach for Implementation and Operation.

Más de 1.000 millones de personas en las áreas urbanas y peri-urbanas de África, Asia y América utilizan tecnologías descentralizadas de saneamiento. Hasta ahora se ha descuidado tremendamente el manejo de los lodos fecales producidos por estas tecnologías. Los recursos financieros son frecuentemente insuficientes y estos sistemas descentralizados suelen ser vistos como soluciones temporales, hasta poder implementar sistemas con alcantarillado. Sin embargo, la verdad es que el saneamiento descentralizado está aquí para quedarse, sea como soluciones independientes temporales o permanentes, o en combinación con sistemas basados en el alcantarillado. El manejo adecuado y apropiado de los lodos fecales es primordial para la protección de la salud humana y ambiental. Este es el primer libro dedicado netamente al manejo de lodos fecales. Compila el estado actual de conocimiento en este campo que está evolucionando rápidamente y presenta un enfoque integrado que incluye la tecnología, el manejo y la planificación. Aborda la planificación y organización de toda la cadena de servicios de manejo de lodos fecales, desde su recolección y transporte hasta su tratamiento y uso o disposición final. Además de resumir los fundamentos y tecnologías, el libro también expone los detalles de los aspectos operativos, institucionales y financieros y las pautas para planificar un proyecto para el manejo de lodos fecales con la participación de todos los actores. Editado.

Biological Wastewater Treatment in Warm Climate Regions Volume II Biological Wastewater Treatment in Warm Climate Regions Volume II

ISBN: 9781843391074

eISBN: 9781780402703

Biological Wastewater Treatment in Warm Climate Regions gives a state-of-the-art presentation of the science and technology of biological wastewater treatment, particularly domestic sewage. The book covers the main treatment processes used worldwide with wastewater treatment in warm climate regions given a particular emphasis where simple, affordable and sustainable solutions are required.

This comprehensive book presents in a clear and informative way the basic principles of biological wastewater treatment, including theory and practice, and covering conception, design and operation. In order to ensure the practical and didactic view of the book, 371 illustrations, 322 summary tables and 117 examples are included. All major wastewater treatment processes are covered by full and interlinked design examples which are built up throughout the book, from the determination of wastewater characteristics, the impact of discharge into rivers and lakes, the design of several wastewater treatment processes and the design of sludge treatment and disposal units. The 55 chapters are divided into 7 parts over two volumes: Volume One: (1) Introduction to wastewater characteristics, treatment and disposal; (2) Basic principles of wastewater treatment; (3) Stabilisation ponds; (4) Anaerobic reactors; Volume Two: (5) Activated sludge; (6) Aerobic biofilm reactors; (7) Sludge treatment and disposal. As well as being an ideal textbook, Biological Wastewater Treatment in Warm Climate Regions is an important reference for practising professionals such as engineers, biologists, chemists and environmental scientists, acting in consulting companies, water authorities and environmental agencies.

ISBN: 9781843391654

eISBN: 9781780402123

Activated Sludge and Aerobic Biofilm Reactors is the fifth volume in the series Biological Wastewater Treatment. The first part of the book is devoted to the activated sludge process, covering the removal of organic matter, nitrogen and phosphorus.A detailed analysis of the biological reactor (aeration tank) and the final sedimentation tanks is provided. The second part of the book covers aerobic biofilm reactors, especially trickling filters, rotating biological contractors and submerged aerated biofilters. For all the systems, the book presents in a clear and informative way the main concepts, working principles, expected removal efficiencies, design criteria, design examples, construction aspects and operational guidelines.
