This book deals with biotechnological interventions towards environmental management. These chapters cover topics of concern for scientific communities, researchers, and policy-makers including the use of use of low cost adsorbent materials for Arsenic and Fluoride contaminated water treatment; plant based treatment for safe disposal of organic-toxic dyes; amendment of soil using beneficial microbes; biogas-fired power generation; novel biopesticides; air pollution analysis; biofuels, and so on. The editors believe the proceeding book will prove to be a vital source of information, touching all three spheres of biotechnological food research and applications.
