About this book

Volume 10: Environmental Biotechnology in the Handbook of Environmental Engineering series presents the theories and principles of various environmental biotechnologies. This outstanding collection of science information is designed as a basic Environmental Biotechnology textbook as well as a reference book for scientists, researchers, educators, and engineers. The book’s expert panel of authors provides an introduction at a wide range of topics, including sanitary microbiology, microbial systematics, ecology, microbial metabolism, life support systems, solid-state processes and reactors, value-added biotechnology products, anaerobic processes, membrane bioreactors, space life support systems, biospherics, natural environmental systems, aerobic and anoxic biotechnologies, sequencing batch reactors, and flotation biological systems. Volume 10: Environmental Biotechnology and its sister book – Volume 11: Environmental Bioengineering – are indispensable as both basic biotechnology textbooks and comprehensive reference books for all environmentalists. Another gold-standard addition to The Humana Press series, Volume 10: Environmental Biotechnology gives readers a cutting-edge illustration of the theories and principles of biotechnologies, systems, processes, and methodologies.

  • Coverage of basic and advanced environmental biotechnologies, systems, methodologies, and processes.
  • Emphasis on detailed descriptions, introductions, theories, principles, classifications, and mechanisms of microbiology, ecology, life support systems, and biological processes.
  • Reference of practical use to scientists, researchers, educators and engineers.
