Sustainable Environmental Clean-up: Green Remediation includes some natural, clean, and eco-sustainable technologies that have undergone the process of gradual development in past few decades. These technologies include a range of innovative natural and viable materials and offer a clean solution of environmental pollution. It includes case studies of phytoremediation, bioremediation (microbial removal of pollutant), constructed wetlands, natural media filtration for the sustainable environmental cleanup. Sustainable Environmental Clean-up: Green Remediation includes coverage of: Recent trends in eco-sustainable green remediation, Role of constructed wetlands in green remediation, Factor responsible for biodegradation of organic pollutants, Remediation through natural media (Sand, gravel, stope-chips), Microbes and their role in green remediation.

Key Features

  • Presents recent trends in eco-sustainable green remediation
  • Covers the role of constructed wetlands in green remediation
  • Outlines the factors responsible for biodegradation of organic pollutants
  • Discusses remediation through natural media (Sand, gravel, stope-chips)
  • Explains microbes and their role in green remediation
  • Includes the role of endophytic microbes in organic contamination management


Engineers, Scientists, Industries and Policymakers who need basic knowledge to the principles of green remediation, contamination management, wastewater treatment  in the sustainable ways  or by the use of beneficial microorganism (bacteria, fungi, cyanobacteria). Students on Environmental Biotechnology/Microbiology. Different professionals working or interested in Environmental Microbiology and Bioremediation field
