About the book
BIOFILMS IN ENVIRONMENTAL BIOTECHNOLOGY deals with detoxification of contaminated water, microbial degradation of pollutants, biological wastewater treatment and many other similar concepts. Microbial ecology and environmental biotechnology go hand in hand wherein underlying processes in microbial communities are the basis for managing events or methods in environmental biotechnology. Several new technologies have been developed like sequencing batch reactors for growth, hyperbaric chambers for isolation of exclusive micro organisms etc. which are discussed in this book.
• Identification of microbial resources, community structure, potential, function, interactions, management, control and environmental implications have been discussed
• Emphasis on processes involved for utilization in the above mention environmental applications
• Advancement in molecular techniques exhaustively reviewed
• New emerging concepts in the field of research discussed.
