Microbial Processes in Waste and Wastewater Treatment
=========================================

INTRODUCTION
The Society for Applied Bacteriology is holding a one day meeting on the subject
of microbiological processes in waste and wastewater treatment.  This meeting
will examine the underlying microbial processes involved in the treatment of a
variety of wastes thereby enabling a better understanding of the total process.
It will be of interest to those involved in the design and operation of waste
treatment facilities as well as researchers interested in microbial pathways,
bioremediation and control.

Reed beds/constructed wetlands	A Warren, Natural History Museum

Waste stabilisation ponds	D Mara, University of Leeds

Microbial generation/treatment 	P Luton & R Sharp, CAMR, Porton Down
of landfill leachates

Activated sludge process, with	A Boon, Hyder Environmental
particular reference to biological
