More Description

The aim of this book is to provide the biotechnologist with the fundamentals of wastewater treatment technology. Although the art of sanitation is several thousand years old, sewage treatment is relatively recent and the book describes both the basic biological concepts and industrial practices. Problems of pollution are given attention and -recent developments in control are discussed. Reactor types, aeration, the handling and disposal of sewage sludge and the anaerobic treatment of effluents are among the topics dealt with. The particular problems of developing countries are included and the challenge to biotechnology is made plain.
