BIODEGRADATION OF TRACE-LEVEL-CONCENTRATION ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS WITH BIOFILM PROCESSES.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Biodegradation of hazardous organic compounds has great potential, as most of the pollutants of concern are degradable under proper environmental conditions. Using microorganisms to degrade hazardous pollutants, especially when the pollutants are present in very low concentrations, requires special consideration of the accumulation and retention of the microorganisms which carry out the detoxification reactions. The paper looks at biofilm processes which have great advantage and are the only feasible techniques for biological detoxification of trace-level contaminants in water.
