Environmental Biotechnology: Concepts and Applications

Front Cover
Hans-Joachim Jördening, Josef Winter
John Wiley & Sons, Mar 6, 2006 - Science - 488 pages
A deeper insight into the complex processes involved in this field, covering the biological, chemical and engineering fundamentals needed to further develop effective methodologies.
The book devotes detailed chapters to each of the four main areas of environmental biotechnology -- wastewater treatment, soil treatment, solid waste treatment, and waste gas treatment -- dealing with both the microbiological and process engineering aspects.
The result is the combined knowledge contained in the extremely successful volumes 11a through 11c of the "Biotechnology" series in a handy and compact form.
