Air Pollution Prevention and Control: Bioreactors and by Christian Kennes, Maria C. Veiga

By Christian Kennes, Maria C. Veiga

In contemporary years, pollution has turn into a big around the world trouble. Air pollution can have an effect on metabolic job, hamper fit improvement, and express carcinogenic and poisonous homes in people. over the last twenty years, using microbes to take away pollution from infected air streams has turn into a commonly authorised and effective substitute to the classical actual and chemical therapy applied sciences. pollution Prevention and regulate: Bioreactors and Bioenergy focusses on those biotechnological possible choices either the optimization of bioreactors and the improvement of purifier biofuels.

Structured in 5 elements, the booklet covers:

  • Fundamentals and microbiological aspects
  • Biofilters, bioscrubbers and different end-of-pipe therapy technologies
  • Specific functions of bioreactors
  • Biofuels construction from pollution and renewable assets (including biogas, biohydrogen, biodiesel and bioethanol) and its environmental impacts
  • Case reviews of purposes together with biotrickling filtration of waste gases, business bioscrubbers utilized in several industries and biogas upgrading

pollution Prevention and regulate: Bioreactors and Bioenergy is the 1st reference paintings to offer a vast evaluate of bioprocesses for the mitigation of pollution. essentially meant for researchers and scholars in environmental engineering, biotechnology and utilized microbiology, the e-book may also be of curiosity to commercial and governmental researchers.Content:

Indoor Air Pollution (Handbook of Environmental Chemistry)

Indoor pollution has turn into a tremendous subject in environmental examine and overall healthiness. most folks spend greater than eighty% in their time in constructions and are uncovered to a vast variety of pollution from indoor assets similar to construction fabrics, furnishings, carpets and textiles, heating and cooking, loved ones and customer items, and so on.

Advances in Air Pollution Modeling for Environmental Security: Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Advances in Air Pollution Modeling for Environmental Security Borovetz, Bulgaria 8–12 May 2004

The security of our surroundings is without doubt one of the significant difficulties within the society. an increasing number of vital actual and chemical mechanisms are to be extra to the pollution types. furthermore, new trustworthy and powerful keep an eye on techniques for protecting the pollutants attributable to damaging compounds less than yes secure degrees must be built and utilized in a regimen means.

Air Pollution Modeling and Its Application III

In 1969 the North Atlantic Treaty association demonstrated the Committee at the demanding situations of recent Society. pollution was once from the beginning one of many pri9rity difficulties less than learn in the framework of the pilot reviews undertaken through this Committee. The association of a each year symposium facing pollution modeling and its program is among the major actions in the pilot research relating to pollution.
