about

This book explains the formation of biofilm on materials surfaces in an industrial setting. The authors describe new developments in understanding of biofilm formation, detection, and control from the viewpoint of materials science and engineering. The book details the range of issues caused by biofilm formation and the variety of affected industries.
Dr. Hideyuki Kanematsu , FIMF ( a Fellow of IMF) is a full professor and the Deputy President of National Institute of Technology, Suzuka College, Japan. There he is a researcher in Environment Materials Engineering. He is interested particularly in the interfacial phenomena between the metallic surface and organisms from an environmen...
