Constructed wetlands (CWs) aim to mimic the treatment processes performed by natural wetlands, offering additional wastewater treatment in a controlled environment. Many CWs have been built as surface water wetlands; however, due to the harmful contaminants and pathogens that are often present in wastewater, surface water wetlands could pose as. Thanks to these advantages, treatment wetland systems have been used in communal management for over 50 years. In recent years, thanks to its advantages, low operational costs and high removal efficiency, there is growing interest in the use of constructed wetlands for the treatment or pre-treatment of various types of industrial wastewater.
Wetlands have been used for uncontrolled wastewater disposal for centuries. However, the change in attitude towards wetlands during the s and s caused the minimization of the use of natural wetlands for wastewater treatment (at least in developed countries). Constructed wetlands have been. COUPON: Rent Constructed Wetlands for Industrial Wastewater Treatment 1st edition () and save up to 80% on textbook rentals and 90% on used textbooks.

Normally, a constructed wetland is preceded by a primary treatment unit. Primary treatment for wastewater may be accomplished by a variety of technologies, although the simplest and easiest to maintain is a stabilization pond (Figure 2) (Crites et al. ; Hammer ). The. A constructed wetland (CW) is an artificial wetland to treat municipal or industrial wastewater, greywater or stormwater runoff. It may also be designed for land reclamation after mining, or as a mitigation step for natural areas lost to land development.. Constructed wetlands are engineered systems that use natural functions vegetation, soil, and organisms to treat wastewater.

Constructed wetlands are also being used to treat petroleum refinery wastes, compost and landfill leachates, fish pond discharges, and pretreated industrial wastewaters, such as those from pulp and paper mills, textile mills, and seafood processing.
For some wastewaters, constructed wetlands are the sole treatment; for others, they are one compo. Written for civil and environmental engineers, sustainable wastewater/water managers in industry and government, Constructed Wetlands for Industrial Wastewater Treatment is the first book to offer a comprehensive review of the set-up and effectiveness of constructed wetlands for a wide range of industrial applications to highlight the diverse economic and environmental benefits this.
Together with its companion volume Natural Wetlands for Wastewater Treatment in Cold Climates (ISBN: ), this book will be invaluable to researchers, planners, engineers and decision makers in the fields of applied ecology, ecotechnology, wastewater management, and environmental impact assessment.
Purchase Constructed Wetlands in Water Pollution Control - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNBook Edition: 1. This important resource: Offers the first, groundbreaking text on constructed wetlands use for industrial wastewater treatment Provides a single reference with summarized information and the state-of-the-art knowledge of the use of Constructed Wetlands in the industrial sector through case studies, research outcomes and review chapters Covers a range of industrial applications such as hydrocarbons/oil and gas industry.
wastewater or stormwater treatment, whereas created wetlands are intentionally created from nonwetland sites to produce or replace natural habitat (Hammer, ).
Until the late eighties the term artificial wetlands was used in the literature in place of constructed wetlands, but nowadays the laner is preferred by most wetland scientists. A constructed wetland system for domestic wastewater treatment is designed to mimic the natural wetland treatment processes by Mother Nature.
This system uses plants and microbes to improve the wastewater quality. Figure 1: A constructed wetland system. removing the settling solids and floating solids (oils and greases) from the wastewater; A.
Constructed wetland treatment systems use rooted wetland plants and shallow, flooded or saturated soil to provide wastewater treatment. Constructed wetlands are designed to take advantage of the chemical and biological processes of natural wetlands to remove contaminants from the wastewater (Skousen ).
there has been a growing interest in the use of constructed wetlands for wastewater treatment. Constructed wetlands treatment systems are engineered systems that have been designed and constructed to utilize the natural processes involving wetland vegetation, soils, and their associated microbial assemblages to assist in treating wastewater.
This type of constructed wetland is most commonly used for aerobic post treatment of domestic wastewater and can take a higher hydraulic load than a surface flow constructed wetland.
In order to dissolve solid organic matter anaerobic pre treatment in a septic tank or biodigester is required.

Well-organized and 5/5(1). Most constructed wetlands around the world are still primarily used to treat municipal and domestic wastewaters but treatment of many types of industrial and agricultural wastewaters, stormwater. The three types of constructed wetlands discussed in this chapter are: 1) horizontal subsurface flow constructed wetlands, 2) horizontal free water surface flow constructed wetlands, and 3) vertical flow constructed wetlands.
Constructed wetlands have been used to treat both centralized and on-site wastewater. This chapter discusses the use of natural and constructed wetlands for treatment of wastewaters.
Mechanisms of treatment processes for wetlands were described. Function, roles, types, and selection of wetland plants were discussed. The chapter also covers design, monitoring, and maintenance of wetland treatment systems for wastewater. From the Back Cover.
Constructed wetlands are gaining worldwide acceptance as effective, low-cost, and low-impact alternatives to unsightly, high-impact wastewater treatment facilities.
The creative involvement of today's planners, landscape architects, developers, environmental engineers, and public officials is helping to maximize the potential of these wetland habitats—from their Reviews: 2.
The performance of a constructed wetland for wastewater treatment was examined for four months (December to March ).
The study area, hereby referred to as the Splash wetland, is approximately 05 ha, and is located in the southern part of Nairobi city.
