Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology
"Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right" --Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General
Edited by two world-renowned scientists in the field, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology provides a definitive and comprehensive coverage of water and wastewater microbiology. With contributions from experts from around the world, this book gives a global perspective on the important issues faced in the provision of safe drinking water, the problems of dealing with aquatic pollution and the processes involved in wastewater management.
Starting with an introductory chapter of basic microbiological principles, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology develops these principles further, ensuring that this is the essential text for process engineers with little microbiological experience and specialist microbiologists alike.

The energy liberated by an exergonic reaction can be used to drive an
endergonic reaction if there is a reactant common to both reactions. This common
reactant in the trapping of energy is called an energy-rich or energytransfer
Glucose-6-phosphateŝADP The compound ADP is also sometimes used by cells
as a high energy-transfer compound since its hydrolysis also liberates an equally
large quantity of energy as ATP (DG80 1⁄4 230.5kJ/mol). However, adenosine ...
(P), and micronutrients), energy, protons and electrons. In biological aerobic

above together constitute the metabolism of the organism and are of paramount ...
Accepting that with each mol ATP formed, 42 kJ (10 kcal) is captured, then the
energy capture is 1596 kJ/ mol (380 kcal/mole) glucose. From the above, in
complete oxidation of one mole of glucose, the free energy released is 2893 kJ/
fundamental not only to bioenergetics and tracing energy pathways in organisms,
but also for measuring the energy strength of organic wastewaters. The
application of this principle to both these aspects is discussed below. 3.2.7 Free
