Emerging Technologies in Environmental Bioremediation introduces emerging bioremediation technologies for the treatment and management of industrial wastes and other environmental pollutants for the sake of environmental sustainability. Emerging bioremediation approaches such as nano-bioremediation technology, electro-bioremediation technology, microbial fuel cell technology, Modified Ludzack-Ettinger Process, Modified Activated Sludge Process, and phytotechnologies for the remediation of industrial wastes/pollutants are discussed in a comprehensive manner not found in other books. Furthermore, the book includes updated information as well as future directions for research in the field of bioremediation of industrial wastes.
This book will be extremely useful to students, researchers, scientists and professionals in the field of microbiology and biotechnology, Bio (chemical) engineers, environmental researchers, eco-toxicology, and many more.

Researcher, Environmental Microbiology Lab, Gujarat, India
Susana Rodríguez-Couto (female) got her B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Chemistry (Industrial Chemistry) from the University of Santiago de Compostela in 1992 and her Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1999 from the University of Vigo, obtaining the maximal grade (magna cum laude) and, in addition, she awarded the Extraordinary Prize for Doctoral Thesis in Chemistry. She worked as an Associate Professor and an Isidro Parga Pondal Senior Researcher at the University of Vigo (2000-2004), as a Ramón y Cajal Senior Researcher at Rovira i Virgili University (2004-2008) and as an Ikerbasque Research Professor (2009-2019). She has also worked as an Invited Researcher at the Institute from Environmental Biotechnology, Graz University of Technology (Austria) and at the Department of Biological Engineering, University of Minho (Portugal). In 2008, she received the I3 Professor from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Education to the recognition of an outstanding research activity. Her main research lines are focused on the production, immobilisation and industrial and biotechnological applications of redox enzymes and waste valorisation. She has published more than 130 articles in highly reputed international journals (h index 40). She is editor of several journals (3Biotech, Frontiers) and 3 Elsevier’s books.
Ikerbasque (Basque Foundation for Science) Research Professor at the Water & Health Division of Ceit-IK4 (Donostia-San Seabastian, Spain)
Dr. Sevinc Sengor research interests and expertise are in mathematical modeling of contaminants in the subsurface environments, biogeochemical processes, environmental bioremediation, water quality, modeling multiphase flow in porous media, and sustainable food-water-energy systems. She has been actively involved in various collaborative research projects including multi-component transport modeling of heavy metals in subsurface, uranium fate and transport modeling, applications of transport in nano-porous media for subsurface flows such as for oil and gas recovery, and development of novel techniques that are cost-effective and highly efficient to remove emerging contaminants in drinking water supplies. Her research articles are published in the top journals in the field including Journal of Contaminant Hydrology, Biochemical Engineering Journal, and Critical Reviews in Environmental Science & Technology. She has developed and taught graduate and upper division undergraduate courses in “Engineering Microbiology”, “Fate and Transport of Contaminants”, “Environmental Chemistry and Biology”, “Groundwater Hydrology and Contaminants”, as well as “Introduction to Environmental Engineering and Science”. She has supervised numerous doctoral dissertations, master thesis, and advised many undergraduate students. She has been serving as a reviewer in various journals of national and international reputation. She is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Environmental Management and Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Bioremediation and Biodegradation, and several other international journals.
