Building on the basics of giology, hydrology, microbiiology, ecology, and toxicology, Baker and Herson's BIOREMEDIATION delivers proven bioremediation techniques for treating soils, groundwater, and aquatic systems contaminated by pollutants in every major chemical class--including hydrocarbons, solvents, PCBs, dioxins, and pesticides. You get the essentials on how to design and apply bioreactors. . .use adapted cultures and genetically-engineered microbes. . .evaluate bioremediation's legal and economic bottom line,. . .and much more! An in-depth analysis of the Exxon-Valdez clean-up--plus dozens of other real-world cases--gives you a close-up look at successful bioremediation efforts in action.
