Publication Bioremediation of Pollutants in Soil and Water. A detailed overview of innovative ways to combat the pollution of the environment. 17 peer-reviewed papers have been divided into five primary categories: Bioremediation Feasibility and App. This book presents advanced techniques for wastewater treatment and the chapters review the environmental impact of water pollution, the analysis of water quality, and technologies for the preservation of water resources. Also outlined in this volume is the bioremediation of heavy metals, etc. During the past decades, the prevention of soil pollution and cleanup of contaminated soils have become a world-wide environmental priority. The goal of soil bioremediation is not only to enhance the timely degradation, transformation, remediation, or detoxification of these pollutants by biological means, but also to protect soil quality. Find bioremediation (soil and groundwater) books and publications, Bioremediation Books. Premium. The European project MINOTAURUS explored innovative bio-processes to eliminate emerging and classic organic pollutants. These bio-processes are all based on the concept of immobilization of biocatalysts (microorganisms and enzymes) and.

Whole plant systems can be a powerful tool in remediating water and soil contaminants. This book focuses on successful strategies for phytoremediation of agrochemicals, metals, and industrial organic chemicals. It also discusses recent developments in bioremediation using plant materials and explores the metabolism of contaminants by plants. Book Review: Environmental Pollutants and Their Bioremediation Approaches as a major source of soil and water pollution and thus requires adequate treatment for its safe discharge into the. The book consists of 15 chapters, with contributions made by many national and international professors, scientists, and researches from Egypt, Korea, and India. In the first chapter of this book, readers gain comprehensive knowledge on several methods of bioremediation (in-situ and ex-situ) of hazardous pollutants. Chapter 2 describes in Author: Pankaj Chowdhary, Vishvas Hare, Abhay Raj. Considering these attributes of microalgae, their potential in bioremediation of toxic metal pollutants and minerals like nitrates and phosphates in water and the greenhouse gases (CO 2 and N 2 O) in the flue gas emissions from fossil fuel consumption in transport vehicles and industries is being extensively explored. The algal biomass thus created during biosequestration of greenhouse gases and nutrient .

  Bioremediation provides a technology based on the use of living organisms, usually bacteria and fungi, to remove pollutants from soil and water, preferably in situ. This approach, which is potentially more cost-effective than traditional techniques such as incineration of soils and carbon filtration 4/5(1).

Schepart --A Comparative Cost Analysis: Conventional Treatment Technologies and Bioremediation / Kimberly L. Davis, Helen R. Smith and Sue M. Day --Application of a Biotreatment Screening Test for Considering Bioremediation As a Treatment Option / Margaret Roy, . In situ bioremediation can be described as the process whereby organic pollutants are biologically degraded under natural conditions to either carbon dioxide and water or an attenuated transformation product. It is a low-cost, low maintenance, environment-friendly and sustainable approach for the cleanup of polluted by:   2. Bioremediation. Bioremediation is a technique used to remove environmental contaminants from the ecosystem. It utilizes the biological mechanisms inherent in microbes and plants to eradicate hazardous pollutants and restore the ecosystem to its original condition [].The basic principles of bioremediation involve reducing the solubility of these environmental contaminants by changing pH, Cited by:
