By Martin Alexander

Biodegradation has been the topic of energetic drawback for the prior forty years. lately, the sector has elevated to surround a wide selection of chemical compounds, a wide array of matters, and the advance of the hot bioremediation undefined. This publication provides the fundamental ideas of biodegradation and exhibits how those rules relate to bioremediation. Authored via a world-renowned environmental microbiologist, Biodegradation and Bioremediation offers microbiological, chemical, toxicological, environmental, engineering, and technological features of the subject.

Praise for the 1st Edition

"Serves a massive functionality in featuring a whole photo of biodegradation within the setting. I[t] offers biologists, chemists and engineers drawn to this procedure with details complementary to their very own fields and therefore belongs at the shelf of all people energetic within the research of biodegradation and bioremediation." --JOURNAL OF CONTAMINANT HYDROLOGY
