Description

Volume 11c is published as the thrid of three volumes on environmental biotechnology. Volume 11a deals with wastewater treatment, Volume 11b with soil decontamination, and Volume 11c gives a profound overview on solid waste treatment, off-gas treatment, and the preparation of drinking water.
All of these topics are of great relevance for a sustainable development. Based on the presentation of general aspects special emphasis is given to the description of processes and applications.
