Development in Wastewater Treatment Research and Processes. Innovative Microbe-Based Applications for Removal of Chemicals and Metals in Wastewater Treatment Plants

  • Book

  • October 2021
  • Elsevier Science and Technology
  • ID: 5315242

Development in Waste Water Treatment Research and Processes: Innovative Microbe-Based Applications for Removal of Chemicals and Metals in Wastewater Treatment Plants focuses on the exploitation of various biological treatment technologies and their use to treat toxic and hazardous contaminants present in industrial effluent and restore the contaminated sites, a topic which lacks discussion in existing titles on the global market. This book encompasses advanced technologies and updated information as well as future directions for young researchers and scientists who are working in the field of wastewater treatment or effluent treatment plants and biodegradation of environmental contaminants for environmental safety and sustainable development.
