Volume 11a on the biotechnology of wastewater is succeeded by the second of three volumes on environmental processes: Volume 11b gives a profound overview of the decontamination of soil.
Part I deals with general aspects of soil decontamination. Microbial fundamentals and particular degradation processes are dealt with in Part II, and analytical techniques and methods of soil clean-up are presented in Part III.

Biotechnology Second, Completely Revised Edition Edited by H.-J. Rehm and G. Reed in cooperation with A. Pühler and P. Stadler This fully revised and expanded Second Edition takes into account all recent developments in biotechnology. It is extraordinarily broad in scope, up-to-date, carefully structured and well-balanced. "Biotechnology" considers both basic concepts and widely-differing industrial applications: it is a successful synthesis of theory and practice. Any scientist aiming for success in industrial microbiology, biochemistry, molecular biology and chemical engineering must turn to "Biotechnology". Volume 11b: This Volume represents the present state of the art in the field of soil bioremediation. On the one side it summarizes the microbiological fundamentals of aerobic and anaerobic degradation mechanisms of bacteriae and fungi for all substance groups relevant in contaminated soil as well as of plant mechanisms to eliminate organic and inorganic substances by phytoremediation. On the other side it presents all the techniques developed since more than one decade to commercially solve, the problems of contaminated sites by biological processes. Furtheron it gives a survey on future developments and trends in overcoming soil contamination problems by using near-nature methods called as e.g. natural attenuation or intrinsic bioremediation. Topics included in Volume 11b are: · International Approaches · Sampling and Analysis of Soil · Soil Geology and Geochemical Barriers · Bioavailibility and Humification Processes · Ecotoxicological Assessment of Contaminated Soil · Aerobic and Anaerobic Degradation of Contaminants: Aliphatics, Aromatics, Compounds with Halogen- and Nitro-Functions · Non-biological Processes · Biological Processes: Heap and Reactor Technique. In Situ Processes, Phytoremediation · Advanced Techniques: Natural Attenuation. Biostimulation. Immobilized Microorganisms. Genetically Engineered Microorganisms · Future AspectsAbout the Author:
