Book Description :

This report analyzes the current status and future potential of biotechnology for metal recovery and environmental control in the mining sector. The report compiles biotechnology processes in production and at various stages of development, classified by commodity. Summaries are provided for base metals and uranium leaching; gold & silver processes; environmental applications; fossil fuels; and industrial minerals. For each sector, a summary indicates the status of the technologies, whether the technology is commercial, near commercial, demonstrated at pilot scale, or at the conceptual stage. Technologies within each sector are briefly discussed and key references provided. For commercial and near-commercial technologies, details are given on process principles, applications, limitations, required developments, patents, and other features. An economic analysis of selected technologies demonstrates the feasibility of some processes given a specific context and a preferred domain of application. The impact of biotechnology on recovery of additional reserves is also analyzed using grade distribution versus cumulative tonnage for selected metals. Tonnages of mine waste and mill tailings that could be sources of metal extraction are separately reported. Finally, regulations affecting the use of biotechnology and biotechnological products are reviewed, and the impact of pending regulations on the Canadian mining industry is discussed.

Book Description :

Biotechnology for Treatment of Wastes Containing Metals addresses various aspects related to different wastes that have a metallic content and represent a serious risk for the environment and human health. These wastes, due to their physical and chemical characteristics, have been the object of studies which have led to the development of different technologies in recycling, reuse or adequate disposal, biotechnology being one of these alternatives. Biotechnology offers a range of options for the treatment of types of waste using microorganisms, biomass and their by-products. The mechanisms involved in these waste treatment processes are diverse and complex, and its optimization and efficiency is multifactorial. This text contains nine chapters related to the problem of the metal contamination in the environment as well as some of the different biotechnological alternatives that have been applied for the reduction and/or recovery of metal contamination.

Book Description :

Plants are composed of 17 essential and at least 5 beneficial elements, and these must be taken up as metal or nutrient ions to allow for growth and cell division. Much effort has been devoted to studying the physiology and biochemistry of metals and nutrients in plants. The aspect of cell biology, however, is an emerging new field and much needs to be learned about sensing, long-distance communication within plants, and cellular signal transduction chains in response to environmental stress. Cellular malfunction and consequently disease result when any of the key steps in metal and nutrient homeostasis are disrupted. Working together, leading experts in their respective fields provide a new concept that reaches beyond plant nutrition and plasmalemma transport into cellular physiology. Each chapter contains basic information on uptake, physiological function, deficiency and toxicity syndromes, long-distance and intracellular transport. The discussion is devoted to metals and nutrients where recent progress has been made and highlights the aspects of homeostasis and sensing, signaling and regulation, drawing parallels to other organisms including humans. Finally, the book identifies gaps in our current knowledge and lays out future research directions.

Book Description :

With chapter contributions from more than 30 metal biology experts, Cellular and Molecular Biology of Metals explains the role of key divalent metal ions involved in the molecular and cellular biology of various target cell populations. Although it primarily focuses on homeostatic metals, such as nickel, zinc, and chromium, the text also discusses a few environmentally pertinent, toxic divalent cations, including mercury, cadmium, and arsenic. This authoritative resource reviews the physiological mechanisms underlying the handling of essential and toxic metal ions, including metal ion homeostasis, metals and enzyme activity, metals and transcriptional regulation, and metal ion transport. It also analyzes other functions designed to avoid metal-induced toxicity and mediate the metal enhancement of cellular function. The role of metal ions and their effect on mammalian cells and organs are only beginning to be truly defined. Cellular and Molecular Biology of Metals arms metals toxicologists and cellular and molecular biologists with the necessary knowledge they need to take the research effort to the next level.

Book Description :

The book aims to provide a comprehensive view of advanced environmental approaches for wastewater treatment, heavy metal removal, pesticide degradation, dye removal, waste management, microbial transformation of environmental contaminants etc. With advancements in the area of Environmental Biotechnology, researchers are looking for the new opportunities to improve quality standards and environment. Recent technologies have given impetus to the possibility of using renewable raw materials as a potential source of energy. Cost intensive and eco-friendly technology for producing high quality products and efficient ways to recycle waste to minimize environmental pollution is the need of hour. The use of bioremediation technologies through microbial communities is another viable option to remediate environmental pollutants, such as heavy metals, pesticides and dyes etc. Since physico-chemical technologies employed in the past have many potential drawbacks including higher cost, and lower sustainability. So there is need of efficient biotechnological alternatives to overcome increasing environmental pollution. Hence, there is a need for environmental friendly technologies that can reduce the pollutants causing adverse hazards on humans and surrounding environment.
