The second edition of Anaerobic Biotechnology for Bioenergy Production is a major revision and restructuring of the first edition, including both new developments in the field since publication of the first edition, new chapters, and updates to existing material. Now comprised of 21 chapters, the content is freshly arranged to provide continuity and increased readability. Parts I and II cover the basic concepts and applications of anaerobic biotechnology, followed by new chapters focusing on recent developments and concepts which have gained greater importance since publication of the first edition. Examples and case studies are used throughout the book emphasizing the latest developments in the field, demonstrating the applications of anaerobic biotechnology to cope with emerging issues of sustainability and climate change.

Anaerobic Biotechnology for Bioenergy Production: Principles and Applications, Second Edition is a stand–alone book on anaerobic biotechnology for bioenergy production, and will be a valuable tool for researchers, instructors, decision–makers, practicing professionals, and others interested in the bioenergy field. The book can also serve as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate students, as well as an important reference for consulting engineers.
