Ozonation and Biodegradation in Environmental Engineering: Dynamic Neural Network Approach gives a unified point-of-view on the application of DNN to estimate and control the application of ozonation and biodegradation in chemical and environmental engineering. This book deals with modelling and control design of chemical processes oriented to environmental and chemical engineering problems. Elimination in liquid, solid and gaseous phases are all covered, along with processes of laboratory scale that are evaluated with software sensors and controllers based on DNN technique, including the removal of contaminants in residual water, remediation of contaminated soil, purification of contaminated air, and more.
The book also explores combined treatments using both ozonation and biodegradation to test the sensor and controller.
- Defines a novel researching trend in environmental engineering processes that deals with incomplete mathematical model description and other non-measurable parameters and variables
- Offers both significant new theoretical challenges and an examination of real-world problem-solving
- Helps students and practitioners learn and inexpensively implement DNN using commercially available, PC-based software tools

Isaac Chairez has served as full time professor over the last 15 years in the Professional Interdisciplinary Unit of the National Politechnique Institute (NPI). He has published 76 papers in referred journal included in the JCR. Over the last ten years, Dr. Chairez have been working on projects oriented on bioengineering. His research focus is on new Artificial Neural Network methods to solve a wide range of engineering problems from adaptive control of uncertain systems to new methods to classify patterns in electrophysiological signals. In particular, he now aims to develop embedded forms of these networks in order to evaluate their workability on real life problems.
