Features

  • Provides a number of versatile and innovative techniques that can be used to bioremediate environments contaminated with organic and/or inorganic compounds generated from different anthropogenic activities
  • Shows the diversity of organisms that can be used as tools to remove environmental contaminants, including bacteria, yeast, fungi, algae, and plants
  • Describes varied and efficient techniques used in bioremediation processes, such as biosorption, immobilization of both biomass and metabolites, use of surfactants, biobeds technology, combined biological systems (microorganism-plant), and use of mixed microbial cultures

Summary

Increased awareness surrounding environmental protection has prompted the development of more ecofriendly technologies. This book provides useful information on technologies based upon the use of biological agents for environmental clean-up, including bacteria, yeast, fungi, algae, and plants. Some chapters refer to the direct application of products derived from plants and microorganisms for designing strategies of environmental remediation. The combination of strategies helps in efficient removal of pollutants generated from anthropogenic activities with minimal environmental impact. This book is meant for professionals involved in environmental technology and waste management.
