- Publisher's Summary
- This authoritative guide from the Water Environment Federation discusses the latest in wastewater and solids management. Solids Process Design and Management represents the most comprehensive and significant update to the highly regarded and widely used USEPA Process Design Manual for Sludge Treatment and Disposal (EPA/625/1-79/011), September 1979. This update comes at a time of rapid change in the solids management field that is motivated by the need for greater cost-efficiency and improved technology performance. Wastewater still requires higher and higher levels of treatment, resulting in even greater volumes of solids that need to be managed in an efficient and effective manner to protect human health and the environment. There have been significant advancements in equipment and processes including a global transfer of technologies and knowledge, as well as changes in planning, design, and management practices. This volume covers these new developments and much more--from conditioning, dewatering, and utilization to disposal. Solids Process Design and Management Includes new material on carbon footprints and greenhouse gases Emphasizes waste minimization Discusses anaerobic and aerobic digestion and odors Covers new equipment and processes Features new information on improved cost-efficiency Comprehensive coverage: General Considerations for Planning of Biosolids Management Projects; Public Outreach and Involvement; Solids Production and Characterization; Design Approach; Conveyance of Wastewater Residuals; Chemical Conditioning; Thickening; Sludge Minimization Technologies; Anaerobic Digestion; Aerobic Digestion; Dewatering; Composting; Alkaline Treatment; Disinfection and Stabilization Processes; Thermal Drying of Biosolids; Thermal Oxidation and Energy Recovery; Pyrolysis/Gasification and Other Thermal Processes; Transport and Storage; Management of Odors; Sidestreams from Solids Treatment Processes; Instrumentation and Monitoring; Land Application and Product Distribution; Landfill Management Systems; Emerging Technologies; Treatment and Utilization of Green Gases.
