Wastewater PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Wastewater free pdf The books provides a timely analysis in support of a paradigm shift in the field of wastewater management, from 'treatment for disposal' to 'treatment for reuse' by offering a variety of value propositions for water, nutrient and energy recovery which can support cost savings, cost recovery, and profits, in a sector that traditionally relies on public funding. The book provides new insights into the economics of wastewater use, applicable to developed and developing countries striving to transform wastewater from an unpleasant liability to a valuable asset and recasting urbanization from a daunting challenge into a resource recovery opportunity. "It requires business thinking to transform septage and sewage into valuable products. A must read for water scholars, policy makers, practitioners, and entrepreneurs". Guy Hutton, Senior Economist, Water and Sanitation Program, Water Global Practice, World Bank "This book provides compelling evidence and real solutions for the new 'resource from waste' approach that is transforming sanitation, boosting livelihoods, and strengthening urban resilience". Christopher Scott, Professor and Distinguished Scholar, University of Arizona "This book shows how innovative business thinking and partnerships around resource recovery and reuse fit well within an inclusive green economy and climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies". Akica Bahri, Coordinator of the African Water Facility, Tunisia, and award-winning researcher
