Overview

This volume covers both the fundamental principles and practical applications of the biological treatment of hazardous wastes. Biotreatment techniques can be used to control and change environmental conditions (oxygen content, chemical composition, temperature, etc.), and to help transform these wastes into acceptable products in a cost-effective manner. The text includes information on hydrogreological, engineering and microbiological fundamentals.


From the Author
Virtually all subjects relating to in situ and ex situ treatment of hazardous wastes From the Editor, Louis J. DeFilippi, Ph.D. , More than just biolgical treatment! Just a note to let readers know that this book covers much more than biological treatment of hazardous wastes. In addition to an introduction to microbiological degradation of aqueous wastes, there are fine chapters on reactor engineering, fixed film reactors, hydrogeologic factors, biofiltration, composting, anaerobic process, case studies, and bioremediation. Unlike most modern scientific books, the index is not computer generated but was developed through extensive expert key word search. There are extensive citations throughout the book. It should make a fine reference in the library of any environmental professional or a terrific source book for advanced seminars in the environmental field. I welcome email comments!br>— Louis DeFilippi defilip1@flash.net, the Author

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A guide for engineers, scientists, and technical personnel, providing a conceptual framework within which to develop effective treatments tailored to any hazardous waste scenario. Delineates factors involved in design of successful and biotreatment approaches and offers balanced presentation of basic principles and engineering practices, progressing from basic microbiological, biochemical, hydrogeological, and engineering principles to the development of design methodologies. Topics include membrane biofilm reactors, pentachlorophenol biodegradation, and natural restoration of PCB-contaminated Hudson River sediments. Includes case studies of specific hazardous waste situations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
