Summary and Info
Volume II contains chapters written by authoritative specialists on the broad spectrum of environmental topics in order to find a way for intense anthropogenic activities to coexist with the natural environment. The book highlights a wide spectrum of themes referring to the environmental analysis and control and molecular modelling of both sorbents and adsorption environmentally-friendly processes. Also covered are new trends in applications of colloidal science for protecting soil systems, purification and production of drinking water, water and groundwater treatment, new environmental adsorbents for removal of pollutants from wastewaters and sewages, selective sorbents for hot combustion gases, some corrosion aspects and ecological adsorption of heating and cooling pumps.The volume concludes with a comprehensive bibliography, which includes the period 1967-1997, on adsorptive separations, environmental applications, PSA, parametric pumping, ion-exchange and chromatography. All articles give both the scientific background of the phenomena discussed and indicate practical aspects.
