By Christian Kennes,Maria C. Veiga

In fresh years, pollution has develop into a tremendous all over the world trouble. Air toxins can impact metabolic task, abate fit improvement, and show carcinogenic and poisonous homes in people. during the last 20 years, using microbes to take away toxins from infected air streams has develop into a commonly authorized and effective substitute to the classical actual and chemical therapy applied sciences. pollution Prevention and regulate: Bioreactors and Bioenergy focusses on those biotechnological possible choices either the optimization of bioreactors and the advance of cleanser biofuels.

Structured in 5 elements, the ebook covers:

  • Fundamentals and microbiological aspects
  • Biofilters, bioscrubbers and different end-of-pipe remedy technologies
  • Specific functions of bioreactors
  • Biofuels construction from pollution and renewable assets (including biogas, biohydrogen, biodiesel and bioethanol) and its environmental impacts
  • Case stories of functions together with biotrickling filtration of waste gases, business bioscrubbers utilized in numerous industries and biogas upgrading

pollution Prevention and keep watch over: Bioreactors and Bioenergy is the 1st reference paintings to provide a wide review of bioprocesses for the mitigation of pollution. essentially meant for researchers and scholars in environmental engineering, biotechnology and utilized microbiology, the ebook may also be of curiosity to commercial and governmental researchers.
