The book starts with the fundamentals of environmental electrochemistry, introducing the basic techniques in selecting and fabricating electrode materials, followed by a theoretical analysis of the electrochemical processes, green electrochemical operation, discussion of electrochemical technologies in water treatment, and then examination of the established wastewater treatment technologies such as electrochemical reactors for metal recovery, electrocoagulation, electroflotation and electrooxidation. Emerging technologies such as electrophotooxidation, electro disinfection, and electrochemical technologies in sludge and soil treatment will also be analyzed. This book will be an excellent reference for young researchers starting new research programs and also for industrialists who wish to appreciate the technologies.
This 350 pages volume contains the contributions from 18 international experts on the key topics concerning environmental chemistry. It is co-edited by Dr. Chen and Prof. Comninellis. Dr. Chen has been working actively in this field for nearly 10 years and is currently an Editor of Separation and Purification Technology. Professor Comn...

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"A . book focussing on electrochemical approaches to the protection of the environment is timely and to be welcomed. . The nineteen chapters in this book are all written by authors with broad experience of their topics . . All chapters are extensively referenced. I have no doubt that this book will be valuable to scientists and engineers presently working in the field or seeking to enter it."­­­ (Derek Pletcher, Journal of Applied Electrochemistry, Vol. 40, 2010)
