Today, industrial water treatment must meet a dual environmental challenge.

The challenges of the business environment require cost-effective treatment to improve plant operating efficiency and productivity. At the same time, industrial plants need effective treatment of water and wastewater to protect the surrounding natural environment and conserve resources.

Meeting these challenges calls for advanced treatment technologies that benefit both environments. And designing the most effective treatment for your unique problems requires a comprehensive resource of the most current water treatment technology. That resource is the Ninth Edition of the Betz Handbook of Industrial Water Conditioning.

Water treatment technology, quality improvement methods, and legislative issues have evolved significantly over the past decade. This Handbook edition presents all the latest scientific, technical, quality improvement, and environmental information available on industrial water treatment.

Every chapter has been thoroughly revised by Betz’s professional water treatment specialists. This full-scale revision provides the most advanced approaches and technology for all aspects of industrial water conditioning, including external treatment; boiler, cooling, and wastewater systems; airconditioning and refrigeration; gas cleaning systems; and more.

In addition, an expanded section on chemical feed and monitoring includes the latest advances in computerized control systems. Plus brand new chapters have been added on current environmental considerations, membrane treatment processes, chlorine alternatives, quality methods, and macrofouling.

Modern pollution control technology

Donated by: Mr. Ferdinand del Rosario

Place of Publication New York
Date of Publication c1978
Publisher The Association

Scientists, legislators, and the public have become convinced that serious steps need to be taken to combat pollution of the natural environment. However, satisfactory solutions to the environmental pollution problems remain far off. It will take larger numbers of engineers, scientists, and technical support personnel to produce solutions that are both technically and economically feasible. Considerable ingenuity, time, as well as research and development will be necessary to arrive at solutions that meet these requirements of technical and economic feasibility

For those who are interested in working on pollution problems, this book furnishes guidance and direction in this rapidly growing field. It reviews the state of the art — what is known, what is being used, and what is being worked on. The technical and economic feasibility of processes, equipment, and plants are analyzed. In turn, this should enable the reader to arrive at an assessment of requirements and opportunities in this field.

The pollution control field now offers vast opportunities for industrial organizations and their personnel in almost all technical areas. Opportunities exist in the chemical, electronics, mechanical, and construction/civil areas, –the rewards are there for those willing and able to meet the challenge.
