Membrane Bioreactors:
Models for Bioprocess Design
by Anna Trusek-Holownia
ISBN 0-86689-070-X
Balaban Desalination Publications
Price €89
Process intensification in a microbiological membrane bioreactor is due, first of all, to the concentration of bacterial biomass. In an enzymatic membrane bioreactor this is achieved by immobilization, and consequently multiple use of the enzyme which, depending on its activity, can remain in the membrane bioreactor either in a native form or can be bound with the membrane. Additionally, a properly selected membrane and method of transmembrane mass transport can replace a multi-stage, often complicated and costly, process of reagent separation used in traditional technologies. A description of the membrane bioreactor in this book helps to minimize costs of membrane bioreactor application. This must be preceded by proper familiarity with the process and identification of parameters which affect the operation of a membrane bioreactor.

Desalination Cost Assessment and Management
by Nikolay Voutchkov
ISBN: 978-616-90836-65
Water Treatment Academy Publications
Price US$ 180
One of the key challenges associated with the wider implementation of seawater desalination worldwide is its relatively high cost. This book provides engineering guidelines for assessment of seawater desalination project construction, operation and maintenance (O&M) costs, and presents practical approaches for cost management using state-of-the art design methods, technologies and equipment. The book describes step-by-step desalination cost estimating procedures and practices. It clearly explains key factors impacting desalination costs and available tools to manage such impacts. It also provides an overview of the main cost-saving features incorporated in some of the best-in-class seawater desalination plants worldwide and shares lessons learned from the implementation of recent low- and high-cost desalination projects. This book contains example construction, O&M and water production cost estimates for a typical desalination project.

Desalination Plant Concentrate Management
by Nikolay Voutchkov
ISBN: 978-974-49635746
Water Treatment Academy Publications
Price US$ 99
This book provides an overview of the alternatives for management of concentrate generated by brackish water and seawater desalination plants, as well as site specific factors involved in the selection of the most viable alternative for a given project, and the environmental review requirements and studies associated with their implementation. The book focuses on widely used alternatives for disposal of concentrate, including discharge to surface water bodies; discharge to the wastewater collection system; deep well injection; land application; evaporation; and zero liquid discharge. Direct discharge through new outfall; discharge through existing wastewater treatment plant outfall; and co-disposal with the cooling water of existing coastal power plant are thoroughly evaluated and design guidance for the use of these concentrate disposal alternatives is presented with engineers and practitioners in the field of desalination in mind. Key advantages, disadvantages, environmental impact issues and possible solutions are presented for each discharge alternative.
