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.

Although there are some photosynthetic organisms, known as photosynthetic
heterotrophs, that can use simple organic ... As the organic source or
environmental conditions change, so associated changes in the heterotrophic
The mass of heterotrophic organisms generated via the different degradation
reactions detailed above, in turn form the matter and energy sources (prey) for
other organisms that live on them (predators), and these in turn become prey to
However, some of the heterotrophs now will use nitrate instead of oxygen as
terminal electron acceptor and continue ... it will no longer sustain heterotrophic
growth and thereby avoid deoxygenation 2. oxidize ammonia to nitrate to reduce
organisms are of specific interest: the heterotrophic organisms and the
lithoautotrophic nitrifying organisms including the ammonia and nitrite oxidizers.
The former group utilizes the organic compounds of the wastewater as electron
donor and ...
This proportion is known as the active heterotrophic mass yield coefficient (Yh,
mass of organism formed per mass of organic material degraded). Apart from
producing theoretical yield coefficients that can be usefully compared with ...
