By Birgitte K. Ahring (Editor)

Anaerobic digestion is a massive box for the remedy of waste and wastewater. in recent years the point of interest has been at the caliber of the effluent atmosphere new calls for for pathogen removing and for profitable elimination of undesirable chemical compounds throughout the anaerobic strategy. the 2 volumes on Biomethanation are dedicated to offering the country of artwork in the technological know-how and alertness of anaerobic digestion. They describe the elemental microbiolgical wisdom of value for knowing the approaches of anaerobic bioreactors besides the most recent molecular concepts for interpreting those platforms. furthermore, the functions for remedy of waste and wastewaters are offered in addition to the most recent wisdom on method keep watch over and law of anaerobic bioprocesses. jointly those volumes provide an summary of a growing to be region, which formerly hasn't ever been offered in this type of entire manner.
