By Volodymyr Ivanov,Viktor Stabnikov

This booklet offers the 1st complete textual content on building biomaterials and bioprocesses. It info points of building biotechnology, a brand new interdisciplinary sector concerning purposes of environmental and business microbiology and biotechnology in geotechnical and civil engineering. It additionally seriously reports all current and strength development biotechnology processes.

It discusses a couple of subject matters together with the biotechnological construction of latest building fabrics comparable to self-healing concrete, building biocomposites, development bioplastics, and biotechnological admixtures to cement. It additionally addresses construction-related strategies like biocementation, bioclogging, soil floor fixation and biosealing, microbial cements and grouts, the biocoating of development fabric surfaces, the microbiology and biosafety of the development atmosphere, the prevention of biocorrosion in addition to biodeterioration and biofouling in civil engineering. Biomediated precipitation of calcium, magnesium, and iron compounds as carbonates, phosphates, sulphides, and silicate minerals in soil for its clogging and strengthening are thought of from geotechnical, chemical, and microbiological issues of view. It bargains an summary of the elemental microbiology that may allow civil engineers to accomplish the development biogeochemical strategies. layout ideas and issues for various box implementations are mentioned from a realistic element of view. The ebook can be utilized as a textbook for graduate and senior undergraduate scholars in biotechnology, civil engineering and environmental engineering in addition to a reference e-book for researchers and practitioners operating during this new interdisciplinary area.
