About the Book

This new book, volume 3 of the four-volume set Bioremediation and Phytoremediation Technologies in Sustainable Soil Management identifies and draws a fresh image of existing developments in theoretical and functional implementation systems from recent scientific research studies that take into account different facets of bioremediation. It also discusses the latest technology and prospects of new soil bioremediation technology and analyses their domains, along with their associated challenges and consequences.
