About The Book

Industrial progress which has contributed to comforts and luxuries of human life will become more respectable if it maintains due regard to nature and its equilibrium. Biotechnology which has number of applications in fields of agriculture, medical, food, energy, industrial production has also its promises for environment protection. Apart from pollution control through biotreatment of wastes, Ecofriendly products and processes from biotechnology (as preventive approaches) will prove as effective options in future. This book aims to discuss `Industrial Pollution Management` as area of most concern in the field of environment biotechnology.

This book should useful to all students studying biotechnology`s role in environmental science as component under different disciplines of science and engineering. Biotreatment technologies useful for treatment of wastes from different industries is relatively less discussed area and though references are desired by students they have difficult time on search. This book will certainly give necessary concise initial information on this subject.

The earlier response to this book suggests the importance of the subject covered.
