The classic environmental biotechnology textbook—fully updated for the latest advances

This thoroughly revised educational resource presents the biological principles that underlie modern microbiological treatment technologies. Written by two of the field’s foremost researchers, Environmental Biotechnology: Principles and Applications, Second Edition, clearly explains the new technologies that have evolved over the past 20 years, including direct anaerobic treatments, membrane-based processes, and granular processes. The first half of the book focuses on theory and tools; the second half offers practical applications that are clearly illustrated through real-world examples.
