Produktbeschreibung
Environmental pollutants have become a major global concern. The modern growth of industrialization, urbanization, modern agricultural development, energy generation have resulted in indiscriminate exploitation of natural resources for fulfilling the human desires and needs, which have contributed in disturbing the ecological balance on which the quality of environment depends. The modern technological advancements in chemical processes/operations have given rise to new products and also new pollutants in abundant level which are above the self cleaning capacity of the environment. One of the major issues in present times is the threat to human lives, due to the progressive deterioration of the environment. This book discusses bioremediation technology based remediation used on genetically modified microorganisms to restore contaminated sites and protect the environment. It studies the opportunities for more efficient biological processes in molecular biology and ecology. Notable accomplishments of these studies include the cleaning up of polluted water and contaminated land. The book identifies the bioremediation techniques other than traditional methods of waste treatment such as incineration, absorbent/adsorbent techniques, catalytic disruption, and destruction of pollutants etc. The book discusses in detail microorganisms that enzymatically attack the pollutants and convert them into harmless products. It analyses biodegradative pathways and biotransformation manipulations through plasmid strains of microorganism, employing recombinant DNA technology. The book includes invited papers by eminent contributors who provide cost effective bioremediation strategies to immobilize contaminants.
