Solids Process Design and Management represents the most comprehensive and significant update to the highly regarded and widely used USEPA Process Design Manual for Sludge Treatment and Disposal (EPA/625/1-79/011), September 1979. This update comes at a time of rapid change in the solids management field that is motivated by the need for greater cost-efficiency and improved technology performance. Wastewater still requires higher and higher levels of treatment, resulting in even greater volumes of solids that need to be managed in an efficient and effective manner to protect human health and the environment. There have been significant advancements in equipment and processes including a global transfer of technologies and knowledge, as well as changes in planning, design, and management practices. This volume covers these new developments and much more-from conditioning, dewatering, and utilization to disposal.
