About the book

With the rapid development of the economy and science, water shortage and water environment pollution are becoming more and more serious. Sewage discharge has far exceeded the environmental capacity, resulting in a series of problems, such as water eutrophication and excessive heavy metals.

In order to solve these problems, we should develop more economical and effective treatment methods besides controlling the discharge from the root. In this context, environmental researchers have gone through unremitting efforts to make the wastewater treatment-related technology more effectively developed, and a series of valuable research results have been achieved.

The purpose of this book is to make people pay attention to the problem of wastewater pollution by introducing the present situation and harm of wastewater pollution. At the same time, by summarizing the new treatment technologies of wastewater and enumerating the relevant typical examples, it is expected to spread and popularize the effective sewage treatment methods.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Sara Gojević-Zrnić

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
