New edition covers the latest practices, regulations, andalternative disinfectants Since the publication of the Fourth Edition of White'sHandbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants morethan ten years ago, the water industry has made substantialadvances in their understanding and application of chlorine,hypochlorite, and alternative disinfectants for water andwastewater treatment. This Fifth Edition, with its extensiveupdates and revisions, reflects the current state of the science aswell as the latest practices. Balancing theory with practice, the Fifth Edition coverssuch important topics as: Advances in the use of UV and ozone as disinfectants Alternative disinfectants such as chlorine dioxide, iodine, andbromine-related products Advanced oxidation processes for drinking water and wastewatertreatment New developments and information for the production and handlingof chlorine Latest regulations governing the use of differentdisinfectants For each disinfectant, the book explains its chemistry,effectiveness, dosing, equipment, and system design requirements.Moreover, the advantages and disadvantages of each disinfectant areclearly set forth. References at the end of each chapter guidereaders to the primary literature for further investigation. Authored and reviewed by leading experts in the field of waterand wastewater treatment, this Fifth Edition remains anideal reference for utilities, regulators, engineers, and plantoperators who need current information on the disinfection ofpotable water, wastewater, industrial water, and swimmingpools.

This handbook contains comprehensive information on more than 5000 trade names and generic chemicals and materials that are used in a broad range of formulations to prevent the contamination and decomposition of end products. Product degradation can be caused by exposure to oxygen, ozone, bacteria, molds, yeast, mildew, and fungi. The industries that depend on the proper selection of preserving chemicals and materials are diverse and include: plastics, elastomers, construction, paper/pulp, agriculture, textiles, paints and coatings, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food, beverages.This handbook contains comprehensive information on a variety of preservatives available from major chemical manufacturers and can expedite the material selection process for chemists, formulators and purchasing agents by providing the answers to these questions:? Is the agent capable of inhibiting the detrimental effects of oxygen, ozone, or microbes to the extent necessary?? Is the agent's overall physical and chemical attributes compatible with the product or system being protected?? Can the agent remain stable under storage conditions and for the application requirements?? Is its safety in production and handling acceptable?? Does its level of toxicity meet environmental regulations?? Does it meet cost requirements?
The essential sourcebook on disinfectants for water purification For more than two decades, George Clifford White's handbook has been known as one of the most vital references on all aspects of chlorination, dechlorination, and the use of alternative disinfectants such as chloramines, ozone, bromine, and ultraviolet radiation. This latest edition features expanded and updated material in every chapter-crucial information for professionals in industries ranging from water treatment, toxicology, and food packaging to industrial hygiene, environmental engineering, and paper processing. White shows how to harness the possibilities of chlorine and other disinfectants for purification. He offers detailed coverage of chlorine hazards-including how to cope with major leaks-and provides insightful profiles of chlorine accidents as well as strategies for avoiding them. Handbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants, Fourth Edition also covers: * Biomedical and environmental effects of chlorine * New advances in equipment, facilities, and operations * The important problem of virus infiltration of water supplies * Chlorine supplies as critical resources, and the issue of their depletion * American and European chlorination practices Handbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants, Fourth Edition is a key resource for researchers, designers, and equipment manufacturers; an ideal reference for regulatory agencies; and a user-friendly operations manual for technicians.

This work details current medical uses of antiseptics and disinfectants, particularly in the control of hospital-acquired infections. It presents methods for evaluating products to obtain regulatory approval, and examines chemical, physical and microbiological properties as well as the toxicology of the most widely-used commercial chemicals. Formulations that have broad applications for both medical equipment disinfection and antisepsis are also discussed.

The past thirty years have witnessed a growing worldwide desire that po- tive actions be taken to restore and protect the environment from the degr- ing effects of all forms of pollution—air, water, soil, and noise. Because pollution is a direct or indirect consequence of waste, the seemingly idealistic demand for “zero discharge” can be construed as an unrealistic demand for zero waste. However, as long as waste continues to exist, we can only attempt to abate the subsequent pollution by converting it to a less noxious form. Three major questions usually arise when a particular type of pollution has been id- tified: (1) How serious is the pollution? (2) Is the technology to abate it ava- able? and (3) Do the costs of abatement justify the degree of abatement achieved? This book is one of the volumes of the Handbook of Environmental Engineering series. The principal intention of this series is to help readers f- mulate answers to the last two questions above. The traditional approach of applying tried-and-true solutions to specific pollution problems has been a major contributing factor to the success of en- ronmental engineering, and has accounted in large measure for the establi- ment of a “methodology of pollution control. ” However, the realization of the ever-increasing complexity and interrelated nature of current environmental problems renders it imperative that intelligent planning of pollution abatement systems be undertaken.
