Anaerobic Biotechnology: Environmental Protection and Resource Recovery.


Anaerobic Biotechnology: Environmental Protection and Resource Recovery

Edited by Herbert H. P. Fang and Tong Zhang

Imperial College Press


400 pages




Chemical and environmental engineers present a sequel to Fang's 2010 Environmental Anaerobic Technology: Applications and New Developments, to describe developments during the past five years in anaerobic technology and its applications in environmental protection and resource recovery. In sections on fundamentals, applications, and challenges toward sustainability, they consider such topics as syntrophy in anaerobic digestion, applying meta-genomics in environmental anaerobic technology, modeling anaerobic digestion processes, anaerobic sewage treatment in Latin America, and the role of anaerobic digestion in increasing the energy efficiency and energy output of sugar cane distilleries. The material could be of interest to engineers and scientists, but also decision makers and environmental activists. Distributed in the US by World Scientific.
