Black & Veatch Revises 5th Edition of Reference Book
Book balances theory with practice and gives details about technological advances in the use of UV and ozone as disinfectants
The water industry has made substantial advancements in its understanding and application of chlorine, sodium hypochlorite and alternative disinfectants for water and wastewater treatment since 1998 when the Fourth Edition of White’s “Handbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants” was published.
At the request of the Wiley publishing company, Black & Veatch has completed a two-year revision process for the Fifth Edition of the handbook, which was authored and reviewed by industry experts to reflect the most current scientific advancements available. Cindy Wallis-Lage, managing director of technical solutions for Black & Veatch’s global water business, led the revision process.
The book balances theory with practice and gives details about technological advances in the use of UV and ozone as disinfectants. It explores alternative disinfectants, such as chlorine dioxide, iodine and bromine-related products and discusses advanced oxidation processes for drinking water and wastewater treatment. Along with new developments in the production and handling of chlorine, the book also examines current regulations governing the use of different disinfectants.
The authors explain the chemistry, effectiveness, dosing, equipment and system design requirements for each disinfectant included in the handbook. In addition, references are included at the end of each chapter to provide additional resources for further investigation.
