9789400714380: Phytoremediation and Biofortification: Two Sides of One Coin (SpringerBriefs in Molecular Science: Green Chemistry for Sustainability)

This volume reviews Phytoremediation technologies such as pollutant stabilization, extraction, degradation, or volatilization, along with their applicability to various inorganic (zinc and selenium) and organic (PAHs and oil) pollutants.

From the Back Cover:

Phytoremediation consists of using plants and their associated microbes for environmental cleanup. Over the past 10 years, this treatment has gained recognition as a cost-effective, non-invasive, alternative or complimentary technology to engineering-based remediation methods. Biofortification, on the other hand, is an agricultural process that increases the uptake and accumulation of mineral nutrients in agricultural products through plant breeding, genetic engineering, or manipulation of agricultural practices.

This book shows how, despite having different goals, both phytoremediation and biofortification technologies can be closely connected as they are both based on the phytoextraction process that involves plant uptake, accumulation, and transformation of nutrient elements from soil. More specifically, this brief offers a comprehensive introduction to Phytoremediation and Biofortification of selenium (Se), zinc (Zn), iron (Fe), cadium (Cd) and copper (Cu), and illustrates the emerging integration of these two bio-technologies.

Phytoremediation and Biofortification: Two Sides of One Coin is a valuable resource to students, technicians, and academics who are interested in the treatment of environmental problems (bioremediation) through the use of plants, and in the field of biofortification.

About the Author:

Xuebin Yin is Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Director of the Advanced Laboratory for Selenium and Human Health at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC).

Book Description Springer, Netherlands, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2012. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Phytoremediation consists in the use of plants and their associated microbes for environmental cleanup. Over the past 10 years, this treatment has gained recognition as a cost-effective, non-invasive, alternative or complimentary technology to engineering-based remediation methods. In this volume, Dr. Yin reviews Phytoremediation technologies such as pollutant stabilization, extraction, degradation, or volatilization, together with their applicability to various inorganic (zinc and selenium) and organic (PAHs and oil) pollutants and to most suitable plant species. As the enhancement of the efficiency of phytoremediation depends on the knowledge of the processes that affect pollutant availability, rhizosphere processes, pollutant uptake, translocation, chelation, degradation, and volatilization, the author focuses on providing an insightful examination of what has been discovered so far about inorganic and organic pollutants. Moreover, he discusses the practical implications for designing phytoremediation strategies and the transgenic approaches to improve them. Bookseller Inventory # LIB9789400714380
