Water Treatment in Developed and Developing Nations

An International Perspective

Victor M. Monsalvo (Redaktør)

UN studies show that high-income, developed nations treat about 70 percent of their wastewater. However, in low-income developing nations, only 8 percent of wastewater undergoes any kind of treatment. Inadequate water treatment has serious consequences for both human health and the environment.

UN studies show that high-income, developed nations treat about 70 percent of their wastewater. However, in low-income developing nations, only 8 percent of wastewater undergoes any kind of treatment. Inadequate water treatment has serious consequences for both human health and the environment.







The articles in this compendium provide a representative cross sample of both developing and developed nations' water treatment facilities. Included are the following topics:








Reclaimed water for irrigation reuse in developing countries



Sludge-handling practices in Micronesia



The removal of phthalate esters from Chinese water sources



Disposal of domestic wastewater in Nigeria



Ameba-enrichment in a South African water treatment plant



Bioenergy from wastewater produced by a Brazilian meat-processing plant



The presence of various pharmaceutical contaminants in the River Thames



Wastewater recycling in Greece



The impact on surface water from contaminants released from German water treatment plants



A Canadian constructed wetland's effectiveness for the removal of various contaminants from wastewater



Accessing irrigation from treated wastewater in the United States



The spacial distribution of fecal indicator bacteria in the groundwater beneath two American water treatment plants



Detection of contamination from retinoid acid reception agonists in Japanese water treatment plants







The editor, a respected international expert in the field, has selected investigations that offer essential information for ongoing research at the graduate and professional levels, as well as for environmental engineers and others responsible for choosing the most efficient water treatment technologies.
