This book details microbial remediation of azo dyes from wastewater including information on existing methods and technologies, their graduation, the emergence of new technologies, industrial practices, and real-case studies. Emphasis is placed on industrial applications and the elimination of toxic pollutants from wastewater through bacterial approach. Specific aspects discussed include effective separation through new adsorbents / newcomers, ion exchange process, coagulation / formulations, separations, and biological methods from wastewater. This book explains a paradigm shift towards the recovery of materials and energy from azo dye containing wastewater
Provides information on the topic of prokaryotic-based technologies for azo dye degradation in wastewater treatment plant
Describes microbial enzymes and their role in bioremediation of environmental pollutants
Covers industrial acid mine tailing wastes, plastic wastes, distillery, and pulp paper industry effluent
Discusses critical insight into limitations of related technologies.
Explains concepts through illustrations, figures, tables, and trivia boxes
This book aims at Researchers, Professionals, Graduate Students in Bioremediation and Environmental Protection, Waste Management, Applied Microbiology, Botany and Plant Biotechnology
