Series: Environmental Science, Engineering and Technology

BISAC: SCI013080; SCI026000

Target Audience: Under graduate, post graduate students, research scholars, scientists and academicians engaged in microbiology, biotechnology, environmental sciences with the fundamental and advance knowledge about the environmental problems, challenges and bioremediation approaches used for the remediation/management of contaminated sites as well as policy makers.

This book provides detailed knowledge on different types of pollutants and their hazardous effects on the environment, humans, animals, and plants. It also describes various modern nano-remediation approaches utilizing different nanomaterials for treatment/management of different wastes, such as nanomaterial-mediated degradation of pharmaceutical and personal care products, nanomaterial-mediated wastewater treatment, nano-biotechnology in solid waste management, nanotechnology in biohydrogen and biodiesel production, and nano-biotechnology in e-waste management. This is an urgent matter for the safety of the environment and for human and animal health.
