About this book

Environmental biotechnology is an emerging field of scientific and technological investigations that is truly global. Popular recognition is high for the environmental problems being faced and solved by biotechnology methods. This book presents selected papers from the 3rd International Symposium of the International Society for Environmental Biotechnology, held in Boston in July 1996. The following topics are covered: metals, mine drainage, removal and toxicity; waste treatment/monitoring; bioremediation; water quality; biodegradation; and local, national and international issues in biotechnology.


Environmental politics in post-World War II America, M.S. Dukakis. Metals - mine drainage, removal, toxicity: biosorption of synthetic dye and metal ions from aqueous affleunts using fungal biomass, K.A. Gallagher et al; removal and recovery of copper ion (Cu2+) from electroplating effluent by a bioreactor containing magnetite-immobilized cells of pseudomonas putida 5X, K.F. Sze et al. Waste treatment/monitoring: rapid safe water supply for the people living in the Mekong Delta, N.C.T.H. Giang et al; design of a representative and cost-effective sampling programme from bleached kraft pulp and paper mills, N.T.K. Oanh and B.-E. Bengtsson. Bioremediation - in situ: rectors/basic studies; pilot-scale comparison of bioventing versus hydrogen peroxide in maintaining effective aerobic in situ bioremediation, R.P. Jamgocian and C. Yapijakis; progress using bioremediation for site restoration by the US Army Corps of Engineers, D.R. Kuroda. Water quality: a comparative study of effluent toxicity for three chlorine-bleached pulp and paper mills in Southesat Asia, N.T.K. Oanh; characterization of uranium binding to residual biomass in distillery spent wash, M. Bustard et al. Biodegradation: biodegradation of mutagenic activity in tar polluted soil, E. dahi and M.M. Jensen; evaporation rates and reaction kinetics of petroleum - biosparging from intact core sleeves, D.W. Ostendorf et al. Local, national, international issues: synthesis and application of insect attractants in Vietnam, N.C. hao et al; environmentally friendly products and processes for the 21st century, R. Kurane.
