1. “Bioremediation: Desk Manual for the Environmental Professional (Advances in environmental control technology)” by R Dennis
2. “Patenting Status of Bioremediation Technologies” by Deepali Gangwar

“Patenting Status of Bioremediation Technologies” Book Review: From all over the world, the scientists and researchers are involved in developing new technologies that can reduce the problems caused due to industrialization. This book has been designed to provide information about patenting and patented technologies. These technologies are used for bioremediation in US, European countries and India. The concepts of chronology, need for patenting, market status etc are also included in this book. This book is useful for those people who are interested in developing new ideas utilizing the technologies like industrialists, environmentalists, researchers etc.

3. “Application of Nanotechnology to Immobilize Bioremediation Enzymes” by Darwesh Osama Mohamad

“Application of Nanotechnology to Immobilize Bioremediation Enzymes” Book Review: The enzymes from bio-agents are much more effective and have huge potential compared to classical bioremediation approaches. But these enzymes have one disadvantage and that is, they lack stability and are difficult to reuse, that is why they don’t provide cost effective options. To improve the stability, enzyme immobilization technology will be used. Immobilized enzymes can tolerate difficult situations, such as high/low pH, high contaminant concentration, high salinity, and high/low temperature. The aim of the research is that textile azo dyes that cause harm to the agricultural ecosystem will be treated by the nanoparticles bounded by enzymes.

4. “Biofilms in Bioremediation: Current Research and Emerging Technologies” by Gavin Lear

“Biofilms in Bioremediation: Current Research and Emerging Technologies” Book Review: Microbial bioremediation uses the metabolic activities of biofilm-dwelling microorganisms and that is why they are cost effective and reliable. These microorganisms are in charge of pollutant degradation in natural environments. Scientists from all over the world have contributed in this book by providing their reviews and latest research about microbial biofilms. In this book, the future trends and the growth areas related to biofilm research is also discussed. This book is useful for people who are interested in bioremediation, biofilm research or environmental microbiology.

5. “Bioremediation of Chlorophenols by Aerobic Granulation Technology” by Mohammad Zain Khan

“Bioremediation of Chlorophenols by Aerobic Granulation Technology” Book Review: Due to rapid industrialization and urbanization, there is a lot of water pollution. Water pollution causes the release of genotoxic and carcinogenic compounds into the water. Most of the techniques that were used for the treatment of wastewater have limitations like poor capacity, generated waste products, incomplete mineralization or high operating cost. Aerobic granulation is a process of microbial cell self-immobilization and is considered to be the most effective route. This process results in a cell-structured shape and is characterized by dense biomass. In this book, kinetics and toxicity during biodegradation of toxic chlorophenols have also been studied.

6. “Bioremediation” by M Sukumar and M Sundar

“Bioremediation” Book Review: Bioremediation is the solution for water shortage problems and to achieve zero discharge in the dyeing industry. This new approach was introduced because there is a lot of competition in the international market and also because of environmental regulations and the availability of subsidies. Bioremediation is more advantageous because it is eco-friendly and cost-effective in nature. Therefore, efforts are being made to utilize the fungi, algae and weeds for effluent and soil treatment.

7. “Bioremediation Technology: Recent Advances” by M H Fulekar

“Bioremediation Technology: Recent Advances” Book Review: Rapid growth in industrialization, urbanization, modern agricultural development have resulted in the exploitation of environment and natural resources. This book discusses the bioremediation technology that how it restores the polluted sites and protects the environment. It also tells us about the opportunities for more productive biological processes in molecular biology and ecology. In the book there are invited papers that were contributed by renowned people. These contributors have provided cost-effective bioremediation strategies to stop the contaminantes from polluting the environment. This book is useful for postgraduate students in biotechnology/life sciences/environmental sciences/biosciences.

8. “Bioremediation Technologies: Principles and Practice, Volume III: 3 (Bioremediation Series)” by Robert L Irvine and Subhas K Sikdar

“Bioremediation Technologies: Principles and Practice, Volume III: 3 (Bioremediation Series)” Book Review: This book depicts how we can reduce the pollution in the environment by using biological methods. This book covers all about media-air, water, and soil/sediment-and blends the talents and knowledge. It tells us how we can remove both harmful and non harmful pollutants from the liquid, solid, and gas phase using biological processes. It is done by biological treatment of wastes of municipal and industrial origin; bioremediation of leachates, soils, and sediments; and biofiltration for contaminated gases.

9. “Kinetic Study of Bio-Remediation of Crude Oil Contaminated Soil” by Baba Yahaya Danjuma

“Kinetic Study of Bioremediation of Crude Oil Contaminated Soil” Book Review: As petroleum is a major source of energy, it causes soil contamination by hydrocarbon pollutants. There are several types of technologies that treat the soil which is contaminated with hazardous materials. Most of these technologies are costly and are not effective in removing the pollutants. Due to the drawback of these conventional clean up technologies, Bioremediation was introduced. Bioremediation is the effective process for removing the pollutants and is also not that costly. In this book it is told that in bioremediation technology, soil is contaminated with crude oil by using natural stimulants.

10. “Applied Bioremediation and Phytoremediation (Soil Biology)” by Owen P Ward and Ajay Singh

“Applied Bioremediation and Phytoremediation (Soil Biology)” Book Review: In the twentieth century there has been a lot of growth in chemical and petroleum industries. These industries produce chemical compounds and materials that have transformed our lives. The large scale manufacturing and processing of these chemical compounds causes pollution in the environment and also harms human lives. This is why bioremediation technology has been developed as it supports the environment and is not harmful for human beings. This technology is also useful for improving the quality of soil. Bioremediation technology is developed with the contribution of biologists, chemists, soil scientists and engineers. Bioremediation is a rapidly advancing field which is successfully used to remediate many petroleum-contaminated sites.
