Book Description :

Environmental sustainability is one of the biggest issues faced by the mankind. Rapid & rampant industrialization has put great pressure on the natural resources. To make our planet a sustainable ecosystem, habitable for future generations & provide equal opportunity for all the living creatures we not only need to make corrections but also remediate the polluted natural resources. The low-input biotechnological techniques involving microbes and plants can provide the solution for resurrecting the ecosystems. Bioremediation and biodegradation can be used to improve the conditions of polluted soil and water bodies. Green energy involving biofuels have to replace the fossil fuels to combat pollution & global warming. Biological alternatives (bioinoculants) have to replace harmful chemicals for maintaining sustainability of agro-ecosystems. The book will cover the latest developments in environmental biotech so as to use in clearing and maintaining the ecosystems for sustainable future.

Book Description :

Book Description:The precarious activities of human beings bring undesirable changes in the environment. The environment is degrading due to overpopulation, industrialization, heavy metals, pesticide, antibiotics, and other hazardous chemicals from one or more sources. As a result, humanity has to ponder over the condition of the environment, which is getting worse day by day. The more efforts humanity puts forward to control nature, the more environmental pollution increases, and because of this the future is getting more and more insecure. So, environmental protection is the primary concern for the future of humanity. There are vast scientific communities working towards the development of eco-technologies, which can improve environmental sustainability without hampering the development of society. Environmental sustainability defines how people should study and protect ecosystems, air quality, integrity and focus on the elements that place stress on the quality of the environment. The environmental protection agencies recognized that developing technology acts as a key to this sustainability and protecting the environment from damages that technological advances could potentially bring. Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology has emerged as very important and promising disciplines in the last two decades. Biotechnology has shown a great promise in solving a plethora of environmental problems. So, different authors regularly try to fill the gap of knowledge in this field. The major goal of Microbiology and Biotechnology for Sustainable Environment is to emphasize all the disciplines from the subject of environmental microbiology and biotechnology. This book fills a long felt gap in the field of environmental sustainability and presents chapters authored by most active researchers in this area. Considerable emphasis in the book is given on all the currently significant research topics/areas, which can be used in the future for the sustainable development of society through environmental protection. In addition, we have attempted to provide balanced coverage of advancements that have been achieved to protect the environment. So, we can anticipate that this book has valuable knowledge for all the academic levels, with the main emphases on scientific community. The leading researchers can find information about different approaches for environmental protection. This book will also prove as a valuable reference for graduate as well as post-graduate students to cover the syllabi related to technologies for environmental protection. The authors provide comprehensive, accessible and updated information to teachers, students and researchers in the fields of biotechnology, environmental science, microbiology, botany, zoology, environmental engineering and many other disciplines.

Book Description :

This book discusses different bioprocesses to produce value-added compounds, the science behind their production, the economics of their introduction to the marketplace, their environmental impacts, and their implications for world agriculture. It also provides insights into various technologies and protocols used. The major strength of biotechnology is its multidisciplinary nature and broad range of scientific approaches. Recent advances in various biotechnological fields are facilitating the production of fine chemicals, recombinant proteins, biomaterials and pharmaceuticals. Biotechnology plays an important role, especially in the fields of food production, renewable raw materials and energy, pollution prevention and bioremediation. Biotechnology’s greatest contribution is in agriculture – in making crops more efficient. Resource recovery, recycling and hazardous-waste disposal are other environmentally beneficial facets of biotechnology. Thus, biotechnology is a pivotal tool for sustainable development, which has become a priority for the world’s policy makers. The concept of sustainable development is based on the goal of increasing the basic standard of living of the world’s growing population, without depleting finite natural resources and degrading the environment. Emerging biotechnologies offer novel approaches with the potential to achieve the goal of sustainability and striking a balance between developmental needs and environmental conservation.

Book Description :

Of late, farming community in India has been facing new challenges of food and nutrition security, human health and structural adjustment to comply with WTO stipulations on the one hand and sustainable environment on the other. The overuse of fertilizers and chemicals, and depleting water resources are essentially threatening the sustainability of Indian agriculture. The slow growth of agriculture sector mainly due to stagnation in productivity growth is a grave concern for policy-makers and development planners. The key challenge to India's agriculture in the 21st century in the wake of open global economy lies in designing, developing and managing agricultural systems that enable farmers to be efficient, equitable and sustainable in the bio-physical and socio-cultural environments. This book has deliberated on the key issues of sustainable agriculture in the context of emerging technologies, policies and institutions by promoting efficiency, equity and better management of natural resources. In the process, thoughts and experience of world-class leaders in agricultural education, research, extension, policy, agri-business and development in addressing the challenges confronting farmers have been documented

Book Description :

The sustainable use of river basins is one of the top environment priorities in Europe. There are many initiatives aimed at the promotion of the sustainable development of river areas around the Baltic and around Europe as a whole, a process greatly accelerated by the introduction of the Water Framework Directive (WFD), which obliges all EU countries to improve the standards in which they use their water and river resources. This book, prepared in the context of the Interreg IIIB Project Watersketch, is an attempt to promote a dialogue on the topic, linking aspects of sustainable biochemistry and biotechnology with elements of sustainable river management. It will serve the needs of water and river management specialists in two ways: it presents various scientific and technological approaches to river management and illustrates the epistemological breadth of the discipline, and also builds on specialised topical biotechnological and chemistry-related knowledge. The latter is especially useful to geographers and planners alike, who could perhaps adapt some of the techniques and components illustrated in the various chapters of this book to their own work.
