About the Book

Microbes and Microbial Biotechnology for Green Remediation, provides a comprehensive account of sustainable microbial treatment technologies. The research presented highlights the significantly important microbial species involved in remediation, the mechanisms of remediation by various microbes, and suggestions for future improvement of bioremediation technology.

The introduction of contaminants, due to rapid urbanisation and anthropogenic activities, into the environment causes unsteadiness, distress to the physico-chemical systems including living organisms. Hence, there is an immediate global demand for the diminution of such contaminants and xenobiotics which can otherwise adversely affect the living organisms.

Over time, microbial remediation processes have been accelerated to produce better, eco-friendlier and more biodegradable products for complete dissemination of these xenobiotic compounds. The advancements in microbiology and biotechnology lead to the launch of microbial biotechnology as a separate area of research and contributed dramatically to the development of the areas like agriculture, environment, biopharmaceutics, fermented foods, etc. Microbes stand an imperative, efficient, green and economical alternative to conventional treatment technologies. The proposed book provides cost-effective and sustainable alternatives.

Microbes and Microbial Biotechnology for Green Remediation serves as a reference for graduate and postgraduate students in environmental biotechnology and microbiology as well as researchers and scientists working in the laboratories and industries involved in research related to microbiology, environmental biotechnology and allied research.


Key Features

  • Discusses important microbial activities such as biofertilizer, biocontrol, biosorption, biochar, biofilm, biodegradation, bioremediation, bio-clogging and quorum sensing.

  • Covers all the advanced microbial bio-remediation techniques which are finding their way from the laboratory to the field for revival of the degraded agro-ecosystems.

  • Examines the role of Bacteria, Fungi, Microalgae, Bacillus sp., Prosopis juliflora, Deinococcus radiodurans, Pseudomonas, Methanotrophs, Siderophores and PGPRs as the biocontrol and green remediator agents for soil sustainability.
