Abstract:

This review on Sustainability covers selected journal articles and conferences papers published in 2010 and is divided into the following sections

• Sustainable water and wastewater utilities:

• Sustainable water resources management

• Industrial and corporate approaches towards sustainability

• Stormwater and green infrastructure

• Sustainability in wastewater treatment

• Life cycle assessment (LCA) applications

• Sustainability and energy in wastewater industry

• Sustainability and climate change

• Sustainability and water reuse

• Sustainability rating systems

The sustainable water and wastewater utilities reviewed sustainable practices and sustainable workforce management. The stormwater and green infrastructure (GI) described the current development in five categories: new studies of GI and low impact development (LID) system performance; GI/LID system planning assessments; macro-scale hydrologic and hydraulic modeling of GI/LID systems; efforts to model changes of water flow and quality in individual GI/LID systems; and social implications of GI/LID systems. The sustainability in wastewater treatment reviewed wastewater treatment; source separation; anaerobic technologies; wetland and low impact treatment systems; algae technologies; and the microbial fuel cell technology.
