The Editorial Boards of IWA Publishing journals selected a shortlist of titles, published in the last two years, to put forward to the IWA community as potential recipients of the new "Best Scientific Book" prize. The prize was introduced by IWA Publishing's Books Commissioning Editor, Mark Hammond.

After receiving the shortlist from the Editorial Boards, the IWA community casted their vote for which book they thought should receive the prize:


After a voting process over the course of four weeks, a winner has emerged, receiving over 88% of the votes:

Biological Wastewater Treatment, Second Edition, edited by Guang-Hao Chen, Mark C.M. van Loosdrecht, George A. Ekama and Damir Brdjanovic.

IWA Publishing would like to congratulate Mr Chen, Mr van Loosdrecht, Mr Ekama and Mr Brdjanovic on their achievement.

The award will be presented at the President's Dinner of the World Water Congress & Exhibition in Copenhagen on Saturday, 15th September.
