Life Cycle Assessment of Wastewater Treatment addresses in detail the required in-depth life cycle assessment of wastewater treatment. This is to meet the special demands placed upon wastewater treatment processes, due to both the limited quantity and often low quality of water supplies. Wastewater management clearly plays a central role in achieving future water security in a world where water stress is expected to increase. Life cycle assessment (LCA) can be used as a tool to evaluate the environmental impacts associated with wastewater treatment and potential improvement options. This unique volume will focus on the analysis of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), using a life cycle assessment (LCA) approach.

Key Features:

Focuses on the analysis of wastewater treatment plants using a life cycle assessment (LCA) approachDiscusses unconventional water sources such as recycled wastewater, brackish groundwater and desalinated seawaterExplains life cycle assessment in detail, which has become one of the reference methods used to assess the environmental performance of processes over their complete life cycle, from raw material extraction, infrastructure construction and operation to final dismantlingExplores a technique (LCA) that is becoming increasingly popular amongst researchers in the water treatment field nowadays because of its holistic approachBased on the real life experiences, the subject of wastewater is presented in simple terms and made accessible to anyone willing to learn and experiment.
