Biogranulation technologies for wastewater treatment by Joo Hwa Tay

By Joo Hwa Tay

Microbial granules have functional significance in anaerobic and cardio organic wastewater remedy. merits of granules are retention of biomass in reactor, range of microorganisms, complicated constitution, and resistance to destructive stipulations. Microbial granules can be utilized to regard municipal and commercial wastewater for removing of natural subject, xenobiotics, foodstuff, and heavy metals. The e-book covers just about all points of formation and use of microbial granules in wastewater therapy. the information on cardio microbial granulation are similar generally to laboratory platforms because of few pilot platforms on this planet utilizing cardio microbial granules. although, via the analogy with anaerobic granulation, that's now used around the globe, it truly is attainable to foretell huge functions of cardio granulation. This e-book may also help researchers and engineers advance those new biotechnologies of wastewater remedy in accordance with cardio granulation. * Covers all features of formation, association, and use of microbial granules in wastewater remedy * Integrates engineering, microbiology, and biotechnology of microbial granules * contains of deep primary facts in addition to functional info for purposes of microbial granules in wastewater remedy
