This book describes the sources of water contamination by PAHs and their transportation and fate in natural aquatic systems. It then discusses, from the analytical chemist’s view, how to determine the presence of PAHs in water and wastewater, and the changes in PAH concentration during treatment processes. The text examines the removal of PAHs using membrane bioreactors and advanced sludge processes, highlighting results from both demonstration and full-scale plants. It also examines the presence of PAHs in conventional wastewater treatment plants, especially in sludge. Features Covers the latest technologies for dealing with PAHs, such as membrane bioreactors Describes real-life infrastructure experiences (stormwater and conventional wastewater treatment plants) Discusses both full-scale and pilot-scale results of various treatment methods Details sludge disposal methods and the relationship between PAHs in sludge, soil, and sediments Examines storm water and its effect on PAHs enter
