The application of Biotechnology to solve the environmental problems in the environment and in the ecosystems is called Environmental Biotechnology. It is applied and it is used to study the natural environment. According to the international Society for environmental Biotechnology the environmental Biotechnology is defined as an environment. The present book mainly deals with environmental conservation, pollution, agriculture, ecology, environment and biotechnology. The extension use of illustrations is intended to increase the Author: Pawan Kumar Bharti. The book devotes detailed chapters to each of the four main areas of environmental biotechnology -- wastewater treatment, soil treatment, solid waste treatment, and waste gas treatment -- dealing with both the microbiological and process engineering aspects. The result is the combined knowledge contained in the extremely successful volumes 11a. "The Ideal of Nature is a thought-provoking look at the multifaceted topics of biotechnology and the environment through an array of lenses that leave the reader feeling grounded and inspired to explore greater depths of bioethics while avoiding the pitfalls of becoming immersed in extremes."5/5(1).

Environmental Biotechnology: An Overview As industrial biotechnology continues to expand in many sectors around the world, it has the potential to be both disruptive and transformative, offering opportunities for industries to reap unprecedented benefits through pollution prevention. Brent Erickson () [1]File Size: 2MB. Biotechnology involves the use of living organisms in industrial processes—particularly in agriculture, food processing, and medicine. Biotechnology has been around ever since humans began manipulating the natural environment to improve their food supply, housing, and health. Biotechnology is not limited to humankind.

Biotechnology offers a `natural' way of addressing environmental problems, ranging from identification of biohazards to bioremediation techniques for industrial, agricultural and municipal effluents and residues. Biotechnology is also a crucial element in the paradigm of `sustainable development'. This collection of 66 papers, by authors from 20 countries spanning 4 /5(2). Environmental biotechnologists combine biology and engineering to develop and use processes that remediate contaminated sites. For example, there are a variety of microbes, fungi, and bacteria capable of consuming pollutants and breaking them down into harmless components over time. Environmental biotechnologists identify, use, and develop. Environmental biotechnology has now fully regained its reputation, due to the hard work of skilled and dedicated scientists. Reliable documentation within a number of areas is rapidly accumulating, and new emerging approaches and tools are distinguishing the field. For these reasons, this book is extremely well timed. This book will be beneficial for the graduate students, teachers, researchers, biotechnologists, and other professionals, who are interested to fortify and expand their knowledge about Actinobacteria in the field of Microbiology, Biotechnology, Biomedical Science, Plant Science, Agriculture, Plant pathology, Environmental Science, etc.
