The series Advances in Industrial Control aims to report and encourage technology transfer in control engineering. The rapid development of control technology impacts all areas of the control discipline. New theory, new controllers, actuators, sensors, new industrial processes, computer methods, new applications, new philosophies..., new challenges. Much of this development work resides in industrial reports, feasibility study papers and the reports of advanced collaborative projects. The series offers an opportunity for researchers to present an extended exposition of such new work in all aspects of industrial control for wider and rapid dissemination. The environmental aspects of all of our society's activities are extremely important if the countryside; the sea and wildernesses are to be fully enjoyed by future generations. Urban waste in all its manifestations presents a particularly difficult disposal problem, which must be tackled conscientiously to prevent long lasting damage to the environment. Technological solutions should be seen as part of the available options. In this monograph, the authors M. R. Katebi, M. A. Johnson and J. Wilkie seek to introduce a comprehensive technological framework to the particular measurement and control problems of wastewater processing plants. Of course the disposal of urban sewage is a long-standing process but past solutions have used options (disposal at sea) which are no longer acceptable. Thus to meet new effluent regulations it is necessary to develop a new technological paradigm based on process control methods, and this is what the authors attempt to provide.
A nice relaxing holiday in a lakeside paradise. That's exactly what the Cranberry family had in mind - until they arrived at Grey Bluff Lake. There's nothing relaxing about a drought! Can they learn to use less water - and still enjoy the summer?
The last book covering a part of this subject has come four years ago (Vymazal, J., and Kropfelova, L., 2008. Wastewater Treatment in Constructed Wetlands; Springer, New Yark) and the one prior to that six years ago (Crites R. W., Middlebrooks, E. O., and Reed, S. C., 2006, Natural Wastewater Treatment Systems; CRC Press, Boca Raton). Both are excellent treatises but neither covers systems based on 'nutrient film technique' even as it is in this segment that most spectacular advances are currently occurring. Moreover, the state-of-the-art in all systems has advanced significantly since these books came out. The proposed book would, therefore, be much more comprehensive as well as up-to-date.
