Ozonation and Biodegradation in Environmental Engineering: Dynamic Neural Network Approach gives a unified point-of-view on the application of DNN to estimate and control the application of ozonation and biodegradation in chemical and environmental engineering. This book deals with modelling and control design of chemical processes oriented to environmental and chemical engineering problems. Elimination in liquid, solid and gaseous phases are all covered, along with processes of laboratory scale that are evaluated with software sensors and controllers based on DNN technique, including the removal of contaminants in residual water, remediation of contaminated soil, purification of contaminated air, and more. The book also explores combined treatments using both ozonation and biodegradation to test the sensor and controller.

Key Features

  • Defines a novel researching trend in environmental engineering processes that deals with incomplete mathematical model description and other non-measurable parameters and variables
  • Offers both significant new theoretical challenges and an examination of real-world problem-solving
  • Helps students and practitioners learn and inexpensively implement DNN using commercially available, PC-based software tools


Academics, engineers and graduate students in the fields of chemical or environmental engineering who have a focus on ozonation or biodegradation. Plant Engineers
