"This book includes chapters prepared by professionals with expertise in environmental microbiology, biotechnology, bioremediation, and environmental engineering. Biodegradation is addressed comprehensively with emphasis on biodegradation chemistry and microbiology. easy to read and will be useful to professionals, teachers, and students. Microbial Biodegradation and Bioremediation brings together experts in relevant fields to describe the successful application of microbes and their derivatives for bioremediation of potentially toxic and relatively novel compounds. This single-source reference encompasses all categories of pollutants and their applications in a convenient.   This book presents the basic principles of biodegradation and shows how these principles relate to bioremediation. Authored by a world-renowned environmental microbiologist, Biodegradation and Bioremediation presents microbiological, chemical, toxicological, environmental, engineering, and technological aspects of the Edition: 2.

The book also explores combined treatments using both ozonation and biodegradation to test the sensor and controller. Show less 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. This book contains a collection of different research activities where several technologies have been applied to the optimization of biodegradation processes. The book has three main sections: A) Hydrocarbons biodegradation, B) Biodegradation and anaerobic Cited by: 7.

compound levels dropped significantly, thus indicating that the biodegradation of alkanolamines and the formation of thermal/oxidative products were complete. Final analysis showed that alkanolamine concentrations were reduced to levels below the det ection limit following treatment, from an initial concentration of 15, mg/kg. The biodegradation of biomass offers some guidances. Polyesters are known to biodegrade. Oxo-biodegradation is defined by CEN (the European Standards Organisation) as "degradation resulting from oxidative and cell-mediated phenomena, either simultaneously or successively." Whilst sometimes described as "oxo-fragmentable," and "oxo-degradable.

In this study, a cyanobacterial strain Anabaena PD-1 showed good resistance against PCB congeners. Compared to a control group, chlorophyll a content decreased % and % when Anabaena PD-1 was exposed to 2 and 5 mg/L PCBs for 7 by:
