Applied Bioremediation

Active and Passive Approaches


Bioremediation technologies are gaining immense credibility in the field of waste management because of their eco-compatibility nature. Biomass can interact and confront with water and soil pollutants in both active (live) as well as passive (dead) way, thereby offering numerous opportunities of exploring them for environmental clean-up. In 21st century, wastes are no longer a waste but are recognized as a valuable Resource. Employing novel and integrated strategies for the development of modern bioremediation processes is desperate need of the hour. This edited book on Applied Bioremediation - Active and Passive Approaches contains mix of interesting chapters that will certainly add to the advancement of knowledge and will provide the required valuable resource and stimulus to the researchers worldwide.
