Membrane Technologies for Heavy Metal Removal from Water, Hardback Book



This book offers lucid treatment of fundamental concepts related to potential applications and prospects of different membranes for wastewater decontamination by removing heavy metals.

Divided into four sections, it provides an overview of different sources of water contamination, their impacts on human health and the environment, and compares traditional methods used to nullify these impacts.

Further, it covers different mature membrane technologies such as polymeric membranes, poly-ceramic membranes, carbon-based membranes and many more, followed by pertinent case studies. Features:Focuses on the removal of heavy metals using membrane-based technologiesDiscusses pertinent criteria to select suitable membranesIncludes feasibility studies and applications of different mature and emerging membranesDescribes heavy metals' occurrence and transport in an aqueous system with an overview of the adverse effectsReviews challenges and opportunities associated with using different membranesThis book is aimed at graduate students and researchers in materials science, water engineering and wastewater treatment.
