Download Biologische Behandlung organischer Abfälle (German Edition) by Peter Kämpfer,Walter D. Weißenfels PDF

By Peter Kämpfer,Walter D. Weißenfels

Die biologische Abfallbehandlung hat sich mit uber six hundred Kompostierungs- und etwa forty Vergarungsanlagen in der Bundesrepublik zu einem zentralen Faktor der Kreislaufwirtschaft entwickelt. Im Prinzip entspricht diese Kompostierung und Vergarung einer Intensivierung und kontrollierten Nutzung naturlicher Stoffkreislaufe. Dabei greifen biologische und technische Prozesse komplex ineinander. Die Hauptakteure sind Mikroorganismen, die organische Substanzen enzymatisch abbauen.
Die ersten Kapitel der vorliegenden Studie geben einen Uberblick uber die fur den Abbau biogener Substanzen wichtigsten mikrobiologischen Stoffwechselwege, weitere Beitrage stellen einige im Einsatz befindliche Anlagen und die etablierten Verfahrensprinizipien vor. Danach werden Methoden zur Prozessfuhrung und -charakterisierung, additionally zur Uberprufung der Effizienz laufender Kompostier- und Vergarungsvorgange erlautert
