Air Pollution Prevention and Control: Bioreactors and by Christian Kennes, Maria C. Veiga

By Christian Kennes, Maria C. Veiga

In contemporary years, pollution has turn into a massive world wide difficulty. Air toxins can impact metabolic task, abate fit improvement, and show carcinogenic and poisonous homes in people. during the last twenty years, using microbes to take away pollution from infected air streams has develop into a generally permitted and effective substitute to the classical actual and chemical remedy 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 therapy technologies
  • Specific purposes of bioreactors
  • Biofuels creation from pollution and renewable assets (including biogas, biohydrogen, biodiesel and bioethanol) and its environmental impacts
  • Case reviews of functions together with biotrickling filtration of waste gases, commercial bioscrubbers utilized in numerous industries and biogas upgrading

pollution Prevention and keep an eye on: Bioreactors and Bioenergy is the 1st reference paintings to offer a huge evaluation of bioprocesses for the mitigation of pollution. basically meant for researchers and scholars in environmental engineering, biotechnology and utilized microbiology, the ebook can also be of curiosity to commercial and governmental researchers.

Toxicants in Aqueous Ecosystems: A Guide for the Analytical and Environmental Chemist

It's turning into more and more realised that the oceans and rivers, specifically, aren't limitless reservoir into which waste might be dumped and that keep an eye on of those emissions is important if whole destruction of our environment is to be shunned. T. R. Crompton has drawn jointly up to date info on those concerns and at the proper analytical equipment wanted by way of all specialists lively in environmental safety and toxicology.

Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs): Mammalian and Environmental Toxicology, 1st Edition

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were produced commercially considering that be­ fore 1930. They proved to be hugely flexible combos and their makes use of persevered to extend in the course of the early 1970's even after the unanticipated world-wide en­ vironmental infection have been came across (Jensen et aI. , 1969; Koeman et aI.

The Quality of Air, 1st Edition

The standard of Air discusses the subject from either the environmental and human health and wellbeing points-of-view. As latest policymakers, educational, executive, business researchers, and most of the people are all eager about pollution in either indoor and outdoors eventualities, this ebook offers the advances within the analytical instruments to be had for air qc inside of social, political, and felony frameworks.
