Overview

Biofouling is a persistent problem for many industries including the water utility services, industrial water systems and the food and beverage industry. Industrial Biofouling provides a comprehensive and informative guide to biofouling in these particular industries. Taking a systematic and novel approach, the book describes the problems caused by biofouling, how and what to use to detect it and, ultimately, how to control it. Relevant examples and case studies are used to illustrate the practical problems faced by each industry. Written by international experts in the field, this book will be essential reading for industrialists, especially those designing water systems, water distribution managers, process water engineers, environmental microbiologists, food scientists, biomaterials scientists and those responsible for public health and reduction of cross contamination within the food industry. It will also be an excellent reference source for graduates and postgraduates studying biofilms.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
US and European researchers summarize what is known about biofilms in industries where they are a particular problem, including drinking water, industrial water, and food industries. For each of the three industries, they discuss the problem, methods of detecting biofilms, and ways to control them. The material should be accessible to lay readers, students, and graduates and can lead specialists to the more detailed primary literature. A companion volume is projected to cover biofilms associated with medical devices and implants, tissue surfaces, and dental materials. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
