Industrial Biofouling - Detection, Prevention and Control
Edited by Walker, James T.; Surman, Susanne; Jass, Jana
John Wiley & Sons
Biofouling and biofilms are the terms used to describe the attachment of biological material.
Bacteria and other organisms have been shown to form biofilms that create nuisances in man-made
environments. Biofilms occur and are a problem in the water service utilities, many industrial
processes including the food, pharmaceutical, paint, oil processing and manufacturing, and
engineering industries. In addition they may create havoc in medicine and dentistry. This
book covers biofouling/biofilms in domestic, industrial and health related fields in which
they are a persistent problem. Industrial Biofouling is divided into three main chapters
focusing on the different areas in which biofilms are present. Each of these chapters is
subdivided into sections covering problems, detection and prevention, and control of
biofilms. An introductory chapter and a glossary of terms bring the volume to five chapters in
