Applied Environmental Biotechnology: Present Scenario and Future Trends is designed to serve as a reference book for students and researchers working in the area of applied environmental science. It presents various applications of environmental studies that involve the use of living organisms, bioprocesses engineering technology, and other fields in solving environmental problems like waste and waste waters. It includes not only the pure biological sciences such as genetics, microbiology, biochemistry and chemistry but also from outside the sphere of biology such as chemical engineering, bioprocess engineering, information technology, and biophysics.Starting with the fundamentals of bioremediation, the book introduces various environmental applications such as bioremediation, phytoremediation, microbial diversity in conservation and exploration, in-silico approach to study the regulatory mechanisms and pathways of industrially important microorganisms biological phosphorous removal, ameliorative approaches for management of chromium phytotoxicity, sustainable production of biofuels from microalgae using a biorefinery approach, bioelectrochemical systems (BES) for microbial electroremediation and oil spill remediation.The book has been designed to serve as comprehensive environmental biotechnology textbooks as well as wide-ranging reference books. Environmental remediation, pollution control, detection and monitoring are evaluated considering the achievement as well as the perspectives in the development of environmental biotechnology. Various relevant articles are chosen up to illustrate the main areas of environmental biotechnology: industrial waste water treatment, soil treatment, oil remediation, phytoremediation, microbial electro remediation and development of biofuels dealing with microbial and process engineering aspects. The distinct role of environmental biotechnology in future is emphasized considering the opportunities to contribute with new approached and directions in remediation of contaminated environment, minimising waste releases and development pollution prevention alternatives at before and end of pipe.
This volume offers a review of oil inputs to the Mediterranean Sea from sources such as shipping, and offshore exploration and exploitation activities. It discusses international measures to prepare for, respond to, and prevent oil pollution incidents, as well as the international legal framework and agencies with a role in pollution prevention and responses. It includes chapters on modeling the fate of oil pollution, oil spill response, and oil spill beaching probability, and presents data from a range of sources, including historic data on shipping accidents and oil exploration and exploitation activities, satellite and remote sensing data, and numerical modelling data, to provide an overview of oil pollution over several years. Topics covered include modelling of oil slicks in the eastern and western Mediterranean basins, oil exploration and exploitation activities in the waters of the Levantine Basin (Eastern Mediterranean), and signatures to and ratification of the Barcelona Convention and its Protocols, for example.Together with the companion volume Oil Pollution in the Mediterranean Sea: Part II - National Case Studies , it addresses both national and international measures in the region, making it of relevance to the agencies and government bodies tasked with remediating or preventing oil pollution, as well as policymakers and practitioners in the fields of shipping, ports and terminals, oil extraction and marine management. It provides researchers with essential reference material on tools and techniques for monitoring oil pollution, and serves as a valuable resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students in the field of marine oil pollution.
In recent research, expansion of problematic birth outcomes to include high birth weight delivery has led to more intensive study of the risk factors impacting this outcome. High birth weight infants complicate delivery by inducing fever or respiratory distress resulting in medically indicated Caesarean sections and infant injury. Being delivered high birth weight is also predictive of many adolescent and adult onset diseases such as obesity, diabetes, leukemia, and other cancers. This book evaluates associations between biological mechanisms and psychosocial risk factors with high birth weight delivery and C-section birth. The prognostic value of screening for urine sugar spill throughout pregnancy is examined in conjunction with high birth weight delivery and C-section. Psychosocial factors explored in analysis include social support during pregnancy, marital status, autonomy, depression, physical work strain, pregnancy wantedness, and partner abuse. Recommendations are intended for public health practitioners, physicians, and other health-related professionals. These recommendations include primary and secondary prevention strategies and direct intervention during pregnancy.
Several types of oil dispersant chemicals have been used worldwide to remove and reduce the effect of oil spill to marine environments and most of the countries are following the rules and regulations for the application of chemical dispersants. Since, there are no records of use of chemical dispersant in Sri Lanka it is necessary to study the toxicity of these chemical dispersants to marine life. Therefore, the manuscript explain an experimental design to determine the acute toxicity of Adt concentrate type 3 oil dispersant chemical to marine fish, Abudefduf vaigiensis under laboratory condition and the LC50 values for the used chemical according to probit software. The results of the above research will be useful for future researches in the field of toxicology and the people who are involving in the marine pollution prevention sector mainly in developing countries.
