Book Description :

Algae plays a very crucial role in our planet. They are oxygen makers; they are major part of the world's seas and they accounts to the generation of a noteworthy portion of the world's oxygen. They are a noteworthy wellspring of sustenance for fish, fisheries, and by means of the organic sample culture, eventually for people. To take care of the enormous demand of algal biomass, a more prominent accentuation has been given on huge scale generation of algal biomass in closed or open photobioreactors. Distinctive nutritious conditions for algal development have been investigated like photoautotrophic, heterotrophic, mixotrophic and oleaginous. Open raceway ponds were additionally investigated for concentrating the impact of weather and climate changes on algal efficiency. This book manages distinctive concerns of algal generation frameworks. These give a foundation of the cutting edge technologies and innovations towards algal development, CO2 sequestration, and huge scale use of algal development frameworks. Feasibility of algal biomass as feedstock for biofuels has been talked about in subtle elements. This book likewise features the potential chemicals obtained from algae that could be utilized as a part of pharmaceutical enterprises. In addition, significance of algal biomass as sustenance supplement to counter insufficiency of essential supplements is likewise talked about in detail. The bioremediation capacity of algae is featured in couple of sections where it is suggested that heavy metal tainting could be alleviated through algae development. Besides wastewater can likewise be utilized for algal development. In this way, helping in general decrease in synthetic oxygen requirement. In this manner a successful wastewater treatment concerned with energy generation could be accomplished by means of algal development.This book is of interest for graduate level audience who are keen to get in touch with algal chemistry, algal frameworks, algal cultivation and harnessing methodologies and technologies. This book is also of interest for researchers and technical staff working in today's algal development field. The first chapter offers a general sight of algae, occurance, classification and general aspects.

Book Description :

This book investigates the main vegetable biomass types, their chemical characteristics and their potential to replace oil as raw material for the chemical industry, according to the principles of green chemistry. Authors from different scientific and technical backgrounds, from industry and academia, give an overview of the state of the art and ongoing developments. Aspects including bioeconomy, biorefineries, renewable chemistry and sustainability are also considered, given their relevance in this context. Furthermore, the book reviews green chemistry principles and their relation to biomass, while also exploring the main processes for converting biomass into bioproducts. The need to develop renewable feedstock for the chemical industry to replace oil has been identified as a major strategic challenge for the 21st century. In this context, the use of different types of vegetable biomass – starch, lignocellulosic, oleaginous, saccharide and algae – can be seen as a viable alternative to the use of non-renewable, more expensive raw materials. Furthermore, it offers a model for adding economic value to the agro industrial chains such as soybean, sugarcane, corn and forests, among others. This will in turn contribute to the sustainability of a wide range of chemicals, mainly organics and their transformation processes, which are widely used by modern society.

Book Description :

Urbanization, industrialization, and unethical agricultural practices have considerably negative effects on the environment, flora, fauna, and the health and safety of humanity. Over the last decade, green chemistry research has focused on discovering and utilizing safer, more environmentally friendly processes to synthesize products like organic compounds, inorganic compounds, medicines, proteins, enzymes, and food supplements. These green processes exist in other interdisciplinary fields of science and technology, like chemistry, physics, biology, and biotechnology, Still the majority of processes in these fields use and generate toxic raw materials, resulting in techniques and byproducts which damage the environment. Green chemistry principles, alternatively, consider preventing waste generation altogether, the atom economy, using less toxic raw materials and solvents, and opting for reducing environmentally damaging byproducts through energy efficiency. Green chemistry is, therefore, the most important field relating to the sustainable development of resources without harmfully impacting the environment. This book provides in-depth research on the use of green chemistry principles for a number of applications.
