Adsorption processes have played a central role in water treatment for many years but their importance is on the rise with the continuous discoveries of new micropollutants in the water cycle (pharmaceuticals for example). In addition to the classical application in drinking water treatment, other application fields are attracting increasing interest, such as wastewater treatment, groundwater remediation, treatment of landfill leachate, and so on. Based on the author’s long-term experience in adsorption research, the scientific monograph treats the theoretical fundamentals of adsorption technology for water treatment from a practical perspective. It presents all the basics needed for experimental adsorption studies as well as for process modelling and adsorber design. Topics discussed in the monograph include: introduction into basic concepts and practical applications of adsorption processes; adsorbents and their characterisation, single and multi-solute adsorption equilibria, adsorption kinetics, adsorption dynamics in fixed-bed adsorbers and fixed-bed adsorber design, regeneration and reactivation of adsorbents, introduction into geosorption processes in bank filtration and groundwater recharge. According to the increasing importance of micropollutants in the water cycle, particular attention is paid to their competitive adsorption in presence of background organic matter. Clear illustrations, extensive literature references and a useful index make this work indispensible for both scientists and technicians involved in water treatment.

The book is clearly and carefully written, the figures are well designed, and the derivations of the mathematical equations can be readily followed. The result is a book that will be a valuable resource for graduate students, adsorption researchers, and design engineers alike. Professor Worch succeeded in developing a reference book that will serve the water treatment community for years to come.

“Eckhard Worch hat das Standard-Fachbuch zur Adsorption verfasst, an dem sich andere Autoren messen lassen müssen und das für Forscher wie Anwender nachdrücklich empfohlen wird. Es ist nicht zu viel versprochen, aber es wird über Jahrzehnte das Referenzbuch zur Adsorption sein, […].”
