Bioremediation Technology: Hazardous Waste Management describes hazardous waste industries, sources of waste generation, characterization and treatment processes/methods, and technique and technology to deal with the treated waste as per the prescribed standard. Advanced treatment based on the microbial remediation, plant-based decontamination, rhizoremediation and nano-based remediation is also explained. Advances in treatment technology using biotechnological tools/bionanotechnology for removal of contaminants are described. This volume will help readers to develop bio-nano-based technologies, which can be transferred from lab to land, and pilot to commercial scenarios.

  • Covers bioremediation aspects of hazardous waste generation from industries, their characterization and treatment                                                                                    
  • Includes case studies at field scale of bioremediation processes                                                                                      
  • Describes electronic waste and their identification, characterization, treatment and recovery of heavy metals through bioleaching/ biosorption                                                                                   
  • Covers toxic waste and statistics, and bioreactor design and applications                                                                                    
  • Discusses relevant technology transfer from lab to land
