Abstract : This Conference was given to assess the applicability of using the biotechnology for the treatment of hazardous/toxic wastewaters. The proceedings are essentially the papers and discussion given by authors and participants. The papers are divided into eleven (11) major topic areas: Inhibition Kinetics and Modeling; Biodegradation of Hazardous/Toxic Wastewaters (Part 1); Report From the Center for Research in Hazardous and Toxic substances and the Consortium for Biological Waste Treatment Research and Technology on Hazardous/Toxic Waste Research Projects (Part 1); Biological Removal of Phenolic Compounds and Heavy metals; Report From the Center for Research in Hazardous and Toxic Substances and the Consortium for Biological Waste Treatment Research and Technology on Hazardous/Toxic Waste Research Projects (Part 2); Biodegradation of Hazardous/Toxic Wastewaters (Part 2); Research Needs Workshop; Assessment of Integrated Wastewater Treatment for Toxic; Detoxification of Organic Hydrocarbons by Selective Microbes and Assessment of Bacterial Toxicity; Biomonitoring of Toxicity in Wastewater Treatment; Treatment of Contaminated Groundwater and Leachate; These conference proceedings include only 37 out of 55 papers presented by the authors as well as the results of the research needs workshops.
