About this book
The Handbook of Environmental Engineering series is an incredible collection of methodologies that study the effects of pollution and waste in their three basic forms: gas, solid, and liquid. This exciting new addition to the series, Volume 12: Flotation Technology, has been designed to serve as both a basic flotation textbook and a comprehensive reference book. An indispensable guide for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, designers of water and wastewater treatment systems, scientists, and researchers, this volume is essential for all readers who are interested in the specialized investigation of the theory and practice of various wastewater systems. A critical volume in the Handbook of Environmental Engineering series, chapters employ methods of practical design and calculation illustrated by numerical examples, include pertinent cost data whenever possible, and explore in great detail the fundamental principles of the field. Volume 12: Flotation Technology, provides information on some of the most innovative and ground-breaking advances in the field today from a panel of esteemed experts.
