chapter 23: page example


This chapter describes the systems used to treat municipal wastewater subject to diverse local constraints and with a view to obtaining the qualities required to allow discharge (per local standards) or even re-use, including the most stringent demands (see indirect re-use as drinking water or as ultra pure water).
The reader is advised to refer to chapters 3 and 4 for a description of the fundamentals relating to the physical-chemical and biological treatment processes applied, as well as to chapters 9 to 15 for a description of the Degrémont technologies (pre-treatment, settling tanks, filters, biological systems, membranes) included in the treatment trains described in this chapter.
