The last book covering a part of this subject has come four years ago (Vymazal, J., and Kropfelova, L., 2008. Wastewater Treatment in Constructed Wetlands; Springer, New Yark) and the one prior to that six years ago (Crites R. W., Middlebrooks, E. O., and Reed, S. C., 2006, Natural Wastewater Treatment Systems; CRC Press, Boca Raton). Both are excellent treatises but neither covers systems based on 'nutrient film technique' even as it is in this segment that most spectacular advances are currently occurring. Moreover, the state-of-the-art in all systems has advanced significantly since these books came out. The proposed book would, therefore, be much more comprehensive as well as up-to-date. It covers a topic of very great contemporary relevance. It will have a world-wide catchment. First of its kind since several years. It has a huge market waiting. It is written by authors with established track record. Adds to the book's market appeal. High on substance. Its appeal will endure. It is written in a lucid, clear, and compact style. It will please and satisfy the reader. It is supported by tables, graphs, half-tones and references.
It will enhance the book's visual appeal and user-friendliness.
