Intensified agrarian and industrial activity has led to earth's soil and groundwater resources becoming polluted with hazardous materials. Bioremediation delivers a green technology using dynamics of living organisms, typically bacteria, fungi, microalgae and also plants to eliminate contaminants from ecosystem. This biological know-how is not only cost-effective compared to conventional physico-chemical approaches, but also very successful and is being employed in the field. This book focuses on important issues for several critical and common environmental pollutants, resulting in a compilation having recent updates on the bioremediation applications towards green and clean environment. This volume also describes updates on various novel approaches of bioremediation including nanotechnology, rhizomicrobiome technology, composting, metagenomics, and biosurfactants-based bioremediation. This volume is a resource for researchers, environmentalists, professionals and policy makers.

Vivek Kumar is working as Sr. Associate Professor, Himalayan School of Biosciences, Swami Rama Himalayan University, Dehradun, India and is leading the plant-microbe-interaction, bioremediation and microbial ecology research group. He is serving as editor and reviewer of several reputed international journals. He has more than hundred publications to his credit, has authored a practical manual book and edited 18 books. He also served as Microbiologist, Public Authority of Agricultural Affairs & Fish Resources, Kuwait and has been credited with first time reporting of Pink Rot inflorescence disease of Date palm in Kuwait caused by Serratia marcescens.
