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 proton motive force is usually generated by one of the two main mechanisms
: the oxidation reactions in electron transport systems (leading to ATP formation)
and the hydrolysis of ATP(as just stated above). Other mechanisms exist but ...
Application of this equation to substances whose standard oxidation potentials
are known, allows prediction of the direction of the reaction and the amount of
energy released from it. Furthermore, the equation allows determination of
From the above, in complete oxidation of one mole of glucose, the free energy
released is 2893 kJ/mol glucose. Thus, the energy captured in ATP on oxidation
of glucose represents a fraction of 1596/ 2893 1⁄4 0.55 of the free energy
In biological oxidation of the organics the proportion of this free energy captured
by the organism is approximately ... This implies that the energy that becomes
available to the organism in biological oxidation of organics is proportional to the
