Biotechnology for Environmental Management and Resource by Ramesh Chander Kuhad, Ajay Singh

By Ramesh Chander Kuhad, Ajay Singh

Various kinds of secondary agriculture and forestry wastes characterize precious source fabrics for constructing exchange strength as biofuels and different price further items resembling sugars, phenols, furans, natural acids, enzymes and digestible animal feed and so on. even though, if now not controlled correctly, waste materials and environmental contaminants generated by way of a variety of industries akin to nutrients and feed, pulp and paper and cloth could lead on to critical environmental toxins. The strength, foodstuff and feed call for necessitate constructing uncomplicated and economically practicable applied sciences for environmental administration and source restoration. Microorganisms and their enzymes give a contribution considerably in usage of plant residues, source restoration and finally in pollutants mitigation.
“Biotechnology for Environmental administration and source restoration” provides a complete evaluation of chosen learn themes in a compendium of sixteen chapters with regards to environmental pollutants keep an eye on and constructing biotechnologies in agro-ecosystem administration and bioconversion of agro-residues (lignocellulosics) into biofuels, animal feed and paper and so forth. This e-book offers a precious source for reference and textual content fabric to graduate and postgraduate scholars, researchers, scientists operating within the region of microbiology, biotechnology, and environmental technology and engineering.

It has been suggested that VPs can oxidize substrate spanning a wide range of potentials, including low- and highrange potentials (Dashtban et al. 2010). This is a result of their hybrid molecular structures which provide multiple binding sites for the substrates (Camarero et al.
