A profound understanding of environmental processes and biotechnological
solutions of environmental problems are siginificant contributions to a
This volume is the first of three volumes on environmental biotechnology
and summarizes biological and engineering aspects of wastewater treatment
processes for municipalities and industry. It includes the fundamental
processes for aerobic and anaerobic carbon degradation, nitrogen and phosphorus
elimination, mathematic modeling of processes, followed by detailed descriptions
of commonly accepted technical solutions for wastewater purification.
