Summary "Biofiltration technology (using micro-organisms growing on porous media) is being recognized as one of the most advantageous means to convert pollutants to harmless products. Biofiltration works at a reasonable cost - utilizing inexpensive components without requiring fuel or generating hazardous by-products."--BOOK JACKET. "Provides a comprehensive survey of biofiltration technology; details the biofilter design and operation concepts used by engineers, consultants, researchers, policy makers, and general scientists; conveys a basic understanding of how biofiltration works by means of contaminant mass transfer and biodegradation; includes otherwise hard-to-find information on the economics of choosing among various biofiltration systems, including details on important designs used in the field."--BOOK JACKET
