New edition covers the latest practices, regulations, andalternative disinfectants Since the publication of the Fourth Edition of White'sHandbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants morethan ten years ago, the water industry has made substantialadvances in their understanding and application of chlorine,hypochlorite, and alternative disinfectants for water andwastewater treatment. This Fifth Edition, with its extensiveupdates and revisions, reflects the current state of the science aswell as the latest practices. Balancing theory with practice, the Fifth Edition coverssuch important topics as: Advances in the use of UV and ozone as disinfectants Alternative disinfectants such as chlorine dioxide, iodine, andbromine-related products Advanced oxidation processes for drinking water and wastewatertreatment New developments and information for the production and handlingof chlorine Latest regulations governing the use of differentdisinfectants For each disinfectant, the book explains its chemistry,effectiveness, dosing, equipment, and system design requirements.Moreover, the advantages and disadvantages of each disinfectant areclearly set forth. References at the end of each chapter guidereaders to the primary literature for further investigation. Authored and reviewed by leading experts in the field of waterand wastewater treatment, this Fifth Edition remains anideal reference for utilities, regulators, engineers, and plantoperators who need current information on the disinfection ofpotable water, wastewater, industrial water, and swimmingpools.

The essential sourcebook on disinfectants for water purification For more than two decades, George Clifford White's handbook has been known as one of the most vital references on all aspects of chlorination, dechlorination, and the use of alternative disinfectants such as chloramines, ozone, bromine, and ultraviolet radiation. This latest edition features expanded and updated material in every chapter-crucial information for professionals in industries ranging from water treatment, toxicology, and food packaging to industrial hygiene, environmental engineering, and paper processing. White shows how to harness the possibilities of chlorine and other disinfectants for purification. He offers detailed coverage of chlorine hazards-including how to cope with major leaks-and provides insightful profiles of chlorine accidents as well as strategies for avoiding them. Handbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants, Fourth Edition also covers: * Biomedical and environmental effects of chlorine * New advances in equipment, facilities, and operations * The important problem of virus infiltration of water supplies * Chlorine supplies as critical resources, and the issue of their depletion * American and European chlorination practices Handbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants, Fourth Edition is a key resource for researchers, designers, and equipment manufacturers; an ideal reference for regulatory agencies; and a user-friendly operations manual for technicians.

Mineral scale deposits, corrosion, suspended matter, and microbiological growth are factors that must be controlled in industrial water systems. Research on understanding the mechanisms of these problems has attracted considerable attention in the past three decades as has progress concerning water treatment additives to ameliorate these concerns. The Science and Technology of Industrial Water Treatment provides a comprehensive discussion on the topic from specialists in industry and academia. The book begins with an overview of water chemistry and covers the characteristics of commonly encountered mineral scales. It addresses the formation and control of different scales in various systems and examines new developments in membrane-based separation processes. Next, it provides a detailed account on the operational challenges of reverse osmosis systems and scale control in thermal distillation processes. The text explores corrosion control in cooling, boiler, geothermal, and desalination systems and it discusses the interactions of polyelectrolytes with suspended matter. Includes coverage of a range of bacterial species, including Legionella The book examines bacterial species commonly encountered in water supplies, the mechanisms of biofouling, approaches to control it, and criteria for selecting biocides for water treatment applications. An entire chapter is devoted to Legionella in water systems. Contributors describe various analytical techniques for identifying mineral scales and deposits. They also examine applications of polymers for treating industrial and wastewater systems and give an account of analytical approaches for monitoring various operational parameters and chemicals used to treat industrial water systems. A valuable addition to the library of academic researchers, this volume will also prove useful to those working not only in the water treatment industry, but also to those in petroleum, textiles, pharmaceuticals, and other areas where purity processes are a significant concern.

Water and wastewater treatment plant operators must have a breadth of knowledge that encompasses more than scientific theory. They need to be generalists with knowledge bridging several scientific, academic, and engineering disciplines. Unfortunately, until now, many of the existing texts in the field were too limited in scope and narrow in focus. Handbook of Water and Wastewater Treatment Plant Operations is the first complete resource manual exclusively for water and wastewater plant operators. It is a thorough compilation of water science, treatment information, process control procedures, problem-solving techniques, safety and health information, and administrative and technological trends. The manual examines numerous real-world operating scenarios, including the intake of raw sewage and the treatment of water via residual management. Each scenario includes a comprehensive problem-solving practice set, which enables readers to integrate relevant math with theory and practical applications. The systematic layout of this hands-on technical aid accelerates the learning of both current and future plant operators.

In seinem Buch "Be Love Now" gibt Ram Dass einen einzigartigen Einblick in seinen langen spirituellen Weg. Der heute 80-Jährige lässt uns teilhaben an den wichtigsten Erfahrungen seiner Transformation vom bedeutenden Harvard-Psychologieprofessor zum "Diener Gottes". Die Begegnung mit seinem Guru Neem Karoli Baba, liebevoll Maharaj-ji genannt, führt zu einem Leben in bedingungsloser Liebe - der Essenz des Daseins. "Be love now" ist ein sehr persönliches Buch und gleich zeitig eine wundervolle Entdeckungsreise, die Herz und Geist öffnet. "Stell dir vor, dass dich jemand mehr liebt, als du je zuvor geliebt worden bist. Man liebt dich stärker noch als deine Mutter dich als Kind geliebt hat, mehr als dein Vater dich je liebte, dein Kind oder dein dich liebender Partner. Diese Liebe will nichts von dir, ist nicht auf persönliche Befriedigung aus und will nichts mehr, als dass du völlig erfüllt bist. Du wirst nur für das geliebt, was du bist, deshalb, weil es dich gibt."
