Anaerobic Biotechnology: Environmental Protection and by Herbert H P Fang, Tong Zhang

By Herbert H P Fang, Tong Zhang

Environmental safety and source restoration are the most important concerns dealing with our society within the twenty first century. Anaerobic biotechnology has develop into extensively permitted via the wastewater because the greater substitute to the extra traditional yet high priced cardio procedure and tens of millions of full-scale amenities utilizing this expertise were put in all over the world some time past decades.

Anaerobic Biotechnology is the sequel to the well-received Environmental Anaerobic expertise: purposes and New Developments (2010) and compiles advancements over the last 5 years. This quantity comprises contributions from forty eight well known specialists from the world over, together with Gatze Lettinga, laureate of the 2007 Tyler Prize and the 2009 Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize, and Perry McCarty, whose pioneering paintings laid the principles for contemporary anaerobic biotechnology. This ebook is perfect for engineers and scientists operating within the box, in addition to decision-makers on power and environmental policies.
