Sustainable LA Grand Challenge Director Eric Hoek authors two new books

Sustainable LA Grand Challenge Director Eric Hoek led a team which recently published two books focusing on water management. The first, Sustainable Desalination and Water Reuse addresses reverse osmosis and the second, Oil & Gas Produced Water Management, focuses on the gas & oil industry.

 

Sustainable Desalination and Water Reuse

This book breaks down various reverse osmosis methods of achieving minimal and zero liquid discharge for inland brackish water, municipal and industrial wastewaters and seawater desalination. Currently the most versatile and effective desalination and advanced water treatment technology, reverse osmosis comes with some downfalls. Sustainable Desalination and Water Reuse address some of these concerns, such as cost-effectiveness and sustainability.

Oil & Gas Produced Water Management

The gas and oil industry has shifted from treating produced water, that which is brought to the surface during production and exploration, as a “waste stream” to taking an integrated water management approach. Oil & Gas Produced Water Management reviews the technologies and techniques used in this transition which move the responsibility of water management from third-party vendors to the oil and gas industry itself.
