This authoritative text provides a state-of-the-art review of one of the most complex and expensive areas of applied remediation engineering. The author divides the subject into three key contaminant groups and discusses availability, toxicity, and treatability as well as a summary of the latest in bioremediation technologies. Special innovative R & D projects are presented for each contaminant group, which discuss both the science and engineering challenges encountered as they progressed from the flask to the field. Bioremediation of Recalcitrant Compounds is a must for professionals seeking cutting-edge, innovative biotreatment technologies for recalcitrant organic compounds.
