Synopsis:

Interaction of microbes with biological or abiotic surfaces leads to the development of a matrix of cells living in close association and complex cooperation with each other, known as biofilm. Understanding the fundamental processes of biofilm formation, the role of material to exchange the energy with microbes, biofilm matrix, and optimization of biofilm formation process are useful to everyone involved with bioprocess development. Interestingly, academic institutions, wastewater treatment plants, and research centers have upscaled biofilm-based environmental technologies, such as moving bed bioreactors, microalgae, tricking bed reactors, biofilters, and bioelectrochemical process as promising environmental technologies. Nevertheless, access to the specific information on microbe-material interaction in biotechnology is still limited.

Material-Microbes Interactions: Environmental Biotechnological Perspective brings great insights into microbes-material interactions, biofilm formation, and emerging bioprocess within the field of applied biotechnology. It systematically summarizes the fundamental principles, state-of-the-art in microbes-material interaction, and its application in bioprocess and environmental technology development. It will be of significant interest to the environmental technology developers, researchers, university professors, policymakers, graduate and postgraduate students and other stakeholders.



  • Illustrates the growing interest in biofilm-based technology development, either wastewater treatment using carrier materials or valorizing waste material into resources using biofilm-based bioprocess
  • Focuses explicitly on the microbes-material interactions in various biotechnologies
  • Has a high degree of novelty by covering a broad range of biofilm-based bioprocesses, state-of-the-art and the trends within the field
  • Includes photo-sets on biofilm development and bioreactor systems
