Electrochemical Water Processing

Even supposing many of the Earth’s floor is roofed with water, so much of it isn't at once usable for human intake or functions. because the inhabitants raises and our normal sort of dwelling criteria bring up, the significance useable water is turning into acute. This e-book addresses this factor with methods to treating water assets that require elimination of undesirable or dissolved components.

Industrial Gas Flaring Practices

This quantity tackles for the 1st time in many years the world's gasoline flaring practices, a tricky, hot-button factor of our time, whose results are just simply commencing to be understood. The booklet examines either the technical and environmental points of gasoline flaring, highlights diversified flare designs, and offers real-world case reports illustrating the right kind use of fuel flaring and the way to prevent polluting flaring occasions.

For example, where there is insufficient dissolved oxygen, bioventing or sparging is applied, while biostimulation or bioaugmentation is suitable for instances where the biological count is low. The bioventing process combines an increased oxygen supply with vapor extraction. A vacuum is applied at some depth in the contaminated soil, which draws air down into the soil from holes drilled around the site, and sweeps out any volatile organic compounds. The development and application of venting and bioventing for in situ removal of petroleum from soil have been shown to remediate hydrocarbons by venting and biodegradation (van Eyk, 1994).
