A new book called “Sustainable Heavy Metal Remediation” (2 vols.) is now on the shelves. One of the editors of the book is Prof. Erkan Şahinkaya of our Bioengineering Department.

Published by Springer International Publishing, the book covers the principles, underlying mechanisms, thermodynamic functions, kinetics and modeling aspects of sustainable technologies, particularly from the standpoint of applying physical, chemical and biological processes for the treatment of wastewater polluted with heavy metals. Particular emphasis has been given to technologies that are based on adsorption, electro-coagulation, bio-precipitation, bio-solubilization, phytoremediation and microbial electrolysis.
