Air Pollution Prevention and Control

Bioreactors and Bioenergy


In recent years, air pollution has become a major worldwide concern. Air pollutants can affect metabolic activity, impede healthy development, and exhibit carcinogenic and toxic properties in humans. Over the past two decades, the use of microbes to remove pollutants from contaminated air streams has become a widely accepted and efficient alternative to the classical physical and chemical treatment technologies. Air Pollution Prevention and Control: Bioreactors and Bioenergy focusses on these biotechnological alternatives looking at both the optimization of bioreactors and the development of cleaner biofuels.

50 Years Of Television In Australia

An exploration of TV year-by-year from 1956, reporting in time-capsule mode on celebrities and shows as they happened, from Happy Hammond and Skippy to the live telecast of the terrorist attack on New York's World Trade Centre.

Structured in five parts, the book covers:

  • Fundamentals and microbiological aspects
  • Biofilters, bioscrubbers and other end-of-pipe treatment technologies
  • Specific applications of bioreactors
  • Biofuels production from pollutants and renewable resources (including biogas, biohydrogen, biodiesel and bioethanol) and its environmental impacts
  • Case studies of applications including biotrickling filtration of waste gases, industrial bioscrubbers applied in different industries and biogas upgrading
Air Pollution Prevention and Control: Bioreactors and Bioenergy is the first reference work to give a broad overview of bioprocesses for the mitigation of air pollution. Primarily intended for researchers and students in environmental engineering, biotechnology and applied microbiology, the book will also be of interest to industrial and governmental researchers.
