Abatement of environmental pollutants : trends and strategies by Pardeep Singh( )

6 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abatement of Environmental Pollutants: Trends and Strategies addresses new technologies and provides strategies for environmental scientists, microbiologists and biotechnologists to help solve problems associated with the treatment of industrial wastewater. The book helps readers solve pollution challenges using microorganisms in bioremediation technologies, including discussions on global technologies that have been adopted for the treatment of industrial wastewater and sections on the lack of proper management. Moreover, limited space, more stringent waste disposal regulations and public consciousness have made the present techniques expensive and impractical. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop sustainable management technologies for industries and municipalities. To remove the damaging effect of organic pollutants on the environment, various new technologies for their degradation have been recently discovered. --

Microbe mediated remediation of environmental contaminants by Ajay Kumar( )

6 editions published between 1905 and 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Microbe Mediated Remediation of Environmental Contaminants presents recent scientific progress in applying microbes for environmental management. The book explores the current existing practical applications and provides information to help readers develop new practices and applications. Edited by recognized leaders in the field, this penetrating assessment of our progress to date in deploying microorganisms to the advantage of environmental management and biotechnology will be widely welcomed by those working in soil contamination management, agriculture, environment management, soil microbiology, and waste management. The polluting effects on the world around us of soil erosion, the unwanted migration of sediments, chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and the improper treatment of human and animal wastes have resulted in serious environmental and social problems around the world, problems which require us to look for solutions elsewhere than established physical and chemical technologies. Often the answer lies in hybrid applications in which microbial methods are combined with physical and chemical ones. When we remember that these highly effective microorganisms, cultured for a variety of applications, are but a tiny fraction of those to be found in the world around us, we realize the vastness of the untapped and beneficial potential of microorganisms

Selenium contamination in water by Pooja Devi( )

6 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Selenium contamination is worldwide phenomenon. Contamination of Selenium in surface and ground water in river basins is one of the critical problems now a days. As Selenium shows a narrow tolerance limit (40-400mg/day), the problem of both deficiency and toxicity of Se have being identified in many parts of India and the world. Different countries are making efforts to remove Selenium from water using different technologies. Some specific processing technologies include reduction, bioremediation, phytoremediation coagulation, electro-coagulation, co-precipitation, electric kinetics, adsorption, chemical precipitation and membrane technology"--
Groundwater geochemistry : pollution and remediation methods by Sughosh Madhav( )

5 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Groundwater known as the least contaminated source of freshwater on the Earth. It is excessively being used in different sectors for diverse purposes such as drinking, agriculture, industrial use and fish culture. Approximately 1.5 billion population is dependent on the underground source of water. Groundwater quality is greatly affected by Sub-surface geology, topography, climate change, and natural events such as earthquake, flood and landslide. This chapter presents a holistic approach about the geogenic pollutants, including their mineralogical sources, remedial measures and impact on the human health in different geographical regions of India. The geogenic pollutant is defined as the surpassing of certain thresholds regarding drinking water recommendations in sub-surface water system devoid of direct or indirect anthropogenic intervention. Longer residence time, often combined with favourable geologic conditions and mineralogy of the aquifer, leading to groundwater pollution by geogenic contaminants. The commonly known geogenic pollutants are Arsenic (As), Fluoride (F), Iodine (I), Uranium (U), Sodium (Na), Chloride (Cl), Sulphate (SO4), and trace element such as iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Chromium (Cr), selenium (Se) etc. As and F are widely studied geogenic pollutants in various geographical regions. The mechanism behind the As mobilization under alkaline and reducing conditions are identified as reductive dissolution of As-bearing Fe minerals, reductive desorption of As(V) and formation of readily mobile complexes. Whereas, F enrichment is affected by the solubility of F bearing minerals, restriction of groundwater conditions, and the presence of precipitating or complexing ions."--

Plant-Microbes-Engineered Nano-particles (PM-ENPs) Nexus in Agro-Ecosystems Understanding the Interaction of Plant, Microbes and Engineered Nano-particles (ENPS) by Mahima Kaushik( )

4 editions published in 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a collection of cross-disciplinary research, with contributions addressing all key features of the plant/microbe/ENP nexus in agro-ecosystems. The uptake, transport and transformation of nanoparticles in plants have attracted more and more attention in the past several years. Especially, the impact of Engineered Nanoparticles (ENPs) on bioprocesses; low-, medium- and high-level dose responses in the microbial community of soil; and long-, medium- and short-term exposure responses, particularly microbial nitrogen transformations, are just a few of the aspects involved. Since ENPs are used in many industries, including cosmetics, agriculture, medicine, food technology and waste management, their transport through biogeochemical cycles is an important focus of many studies today. Specifically, ENPmicrobe interaction has been analysed with regard to disease treatment for plants; it plays a vital role in disease inhibition by releasing metal ions that act through many pathways e.g. reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation, DNA transformation and disruption of the cell cycle to stop cell growth in the pathogen. Due to these properties, ENPs are also used as slow release or delayed release pesticides and fungicides, and as carrier systems for growth-promoting hormones. Despite their multiple uses in various industries, the negative effects of ENPs are still a major concern for the scientific community and consumers alike. For example, their transport to various food chains has been reported to have adverse effects. This raises a degree of doubt concerning a rapidly growing scientific field with major applications in many industries. From a sustainable development perspective and particularly to ensure food security in light of the uncertainty accompanying climate change, it is imperative to address this divergence by focusing on the plant/microbe/ENP nexus

Energy : crises, challenges and solutions by Pardeep Singh( Book )

5 editions published between 2021 and 2022 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Addressing the energy crisis and climate change notions would entail dramatic policy changes in areas such as energy, global warming, and forest management. Energy and climate are also discussed together as the global economy was fuelled by fossil fuels, which could change the environment since the industrial revolution. This could lead to climate change that would be difficult and expensive to respond to. Fossil fuels play a significant role in the governance of economic growth, industrialization and human health. It is a fact that man's over-reliance on carbon trading is a huge mistake that could even lead to violent war between powerful nations and lead to political instability. The global energy system, therefore, calls for significant transformative steps to combat global climate change. If greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels burning continue unabated, a radical environmental transformation will be observed. Therefore, it is essential to direct efforts to support climate change goals at the national and global level in orthography policy"--
