Over the past 50 years the volume of wastewater has grown exponentially as a result of the increasing world population and the expansion of industrial developments. Researchers all over the world have been trying to address this issue suitably in order to fight water scarcity; yet, it is only recently that wastewater recycling has caught their attention as an effective and responsible solution.

Wastewater is a resource that can be adequately treated to successfully satisfy most water demands as well as decreasing wastewater discharges and preventing pollution. This book presents the studies of some of the most prestigious international scientists and gathers them in three different sections: Wastewater Management and Reuse, Wastewater Treatment options and Risk Assessment. The result is an insightful analysis of waste water management, its treatments, and the processes that have been studied, optimized and developed so far to sustain our environment.

Wastewater Reuse and Managementrepresents a valuable resource to academic researchers, students, institutions, environmentalists, and anyone interested in environmental policies aimed at safeguarding both the quality and the quantity of water.

Prof. (Dr.) Sanjay K. Sharma is a very well known author and Editor of many books, research journals and hundreds of articles from last twenty years. His recently published books are 'Green Corrosion Chemistry and Engineering' (From Wiley-VCH, Germany), 'Green Chemistry for Environmental Sustainability' ,'Handbook on Applications of Ul...
