The use of biological means to treat waste has been a mainstay of industrial and municipal wastewater treatment technology. Recovery of waste materials or conversion to other economically useful forms of commercial products has provoked considerable scrutiny but few genuine commercial processes. This lapse of application is partially attributable to the changing knowledge base supporting such ventures and the economic recovery of development costs. The increasing cost of materials and the enforcement of environmental legislation has paved the way for a renewed interest in biological technology that offers both a recovery of unused resources and a general reduction of waste effluents.
