Integrative Strategies for Bioremediation of Environmental Contaminants, Volume Two: Avenues to a Cleaner Society focuses on the exploitation of various biological treatment technologies and their use to treat toxic contaminants present in industrial effluent to restore contaminated sites. The book includes coverage of combined treatments of microbes for reuse of wastewater and contaminated soil to successfully achieve eco-restoration, environment protection and sustainable development. In 14 chapters, this reference compiles current and advanced biotechnologies as well as future directions for research. This is a valuable resource for researchers in microbiology, biotechnology, environmental engineering and environmental science, and all those who wish to broaden their knowledge in the field of applied microbiology to develop sustainable waste management.

Key Features

  • Provides comprehensive information on state-of-art applications of biochar, microbes and their synergistic use for wastewater/industrial effluent treatment and environment protection
  • Summarizes current uses of biochar, microbes and dead biomass for dye decolorization, degradation, and removal of heavy metals which may play a key role in achieving a more productive and sustainable environment
  • Explores various aspects of biological methods for contaminant removal for better insights into basic and advanced biotechnological applications


Researchers, Microbiologists, Biotechnologists, Environmental Engineers, Waste Treatment Engineers and Managers, Scientists, Environmental Science Managers. Administrators, Policy Makers, Environmental Consultants and Industry Persons who aspire to work on the treatment and reuse of industrial effluent and contaminated soil and agro-waste management for environmental safety and sustainable development
