This book offers lucid treatment of fundamental concepts related to potential applications and prospects of different membranes for wastewater decontamination by removing heavy metals. Divided into four sections, it provides overview of different sources of water contamination, their impacts on human health and environment, and compares traditional methods used to nullify these impacts. Further, it covers different mature membrane technologies such as polymeric membranes, poly-ceramic membranes, carbon-based membranes and many more, followed by pertinent case studies. Features: · Focus on the removal of heavy metals using membrane-based technologies. · Discusses pertinent criteria to select suitable membranes. · Includes feasibility study and applications of different mature and emerging membranes. · Describes heavy metals’ occurrence and transport in an aqueous system with an overview of the adverse effects. · Reviews challenges and opportunities associated with using different membranes. This book is aimed at graduate students and researchers in materials science, water engineering, and wastewater treatment.
