Anaerobic technology has become widely accepted by the environmental industry as a cost-effective alternative to the conventional aerobic process. This makes anaerobic process the favored green treatment technology for sustainable environment in years to come.Written by world-renowned authors, this compendium summarizes the successful full-scale application experiences of anaerobic technology worldwide, including not just food, beverage, and distillery wastewaters but also municipal, agricultural, chemical and petrochemical wastewaters. The book also introduces new developments of anaerobic technology, including pretreatment and granulation technologies, membrane bioreactor, two-stage treatment, bio-hydrogen production, molecular techniques, and modeling .

Book News
Boasting the advantages of energy savings, reduced sludge yield, and production of biofuel, anaerobic technology has applications in the treatment of wastewaters from food, beverage, brewery, and distillery industries, as well as the potential for use with municipal wastewater systems, chemical industries, and agriculture. Although first applications were in the 1860s, the techniques for anaerobic waste and wastewater treatment fell out of favor for many years in relation to aerobic processes. The 1960s saw their return in the United States, and then major developments began to emerge from the Netherlands. This book brings together state-of-the-art processes and applications and emerging research from an international roster of contributors. Editor Herbert H.P.
