      Biotechnology offers one of the most economical and environmentally benign methods of air pollution control for industrial and municipal airstreams. Volatile organic and inorganic odorous compounds from various industries are emitted in large quantities and create hazards to the ecosystem and health effects to humans. Thus, the demand for odor and air pollution . "I highly recommend the landmark and all encompassing book Air Pollution Prevention and Control: Bioreactors and Bioenergy edited by Christian Kennes and Maria C. Veiga, to any students, faculty, researchers, in environmental engineering, biotechnology, and applied microbiology, business leaders in industries facing air pollution challenges.

    ADVERTISEMENTS: In this article we will discuss about the Air Pollution: 1. Meaning of Air Pollution 2. Sources of Air Pollution 3. Air Pollutants 4. Indoor Air Pollution 5. Effects of Air Pollution 6. Prevention and Control of Air Pollution 7. Disinfection of Air. Contents: Essay on the Meaning of Air Pollution Essay on the [ ].   The plants that are tolerant to polluted air can be used to create a green belt around polluted industrial areas and along the roadside. Biomonitoring Air Pollution: Some scientists also use avenue trees to monitor the air pollution level in the locality. This is known as biomonitoring of air pollution.

    "This book is a highly readable compendium of comprehensive essays on the present-day state of agricultural plant biotechnology. Each chapter is written by experts from across the globe. The book begins with a discussion of the rationale for the use of biotechnology in agriculture. Dr. Pierre Sicard "I am pleased to announce that the joint conference entitled "Air Pollution threats to Plant Ecosystems" will be held in Paphos on September This international conference aims to provide an attractive stage for fruitful scientific discussion to identify priorities, solutions and challenges for future research with an ultimate goal of improved health, .

Air Pollution and Plant Biotechnology This book is ubiquitous in industrialized societies, and is the cause of a host of environmental problems. It is thus essential that pollutant levels be monitored and reduced. Where limit comes to infinity. Full Synopsis: "This book focuses upon air pollution, types of air pollutants and their impact on plant physiological and biochemical systems.

The book begins with a brief background on air pollution and continues with a discussion on different types, effects, and solutions to the pollution. Air Pollution and Plant Biotechnology presents recent results in this field, including plant responses during phytomonitoring, pollution-resistant plant species, imaging diagnosis of plant.

Biotechnology for Air Pollution Control – An Overview. Biotechnologyoffers themosteconomicalandenvironmentallybenignmethod for air pollution control when dealing with the removal of odorous and. air pollution, contamination of the air by noxious gases and minute particles of solid and liquid matter (particulates) in concentrations that endanger health.

The major sources of air pollution are transportation engines, power and heat generation, industrial processes, and the. Air Pollution Prevention and Control: Bioreactors and Bioenergy focusses on these biotechnological alternatives looking at both the optimization of bioreactors and the development of cleaner biofuels.

Structured in five parts, the book. About this book. Introduction. Biotechnology offers one of the most economical and environmentally benign methods of air pollution control for industrial and municipal airstreams.

Volatile organic and inorganic odorous compounds from various industries are emitted in large quantities and create hazards to the ecosystem and health effects to humans. Summary: The present title Air Pollution and Plant Biotechnology written to provide a reader having little or no background in environmental chemistry and plant biotechnology needed for a trade, profession, or curriculum of study that requires a basic knowledge of these topics.

About this book Biotechnology offers one of the most economical and environmentally benign methods of air pollution control for industrial and municipal airstreams. Volatile organic and inorganic odorous compounds from various industries are emitted in large quantities and create hazards to the ecosystem and health effects to humans.

The book discusses the topics like; plant-pollutant interactions, the visible injury in response to boron stress and its genotoxic effects, bioremediation of vanadium, nitrogen pollution, plants and human health, role of halophytes towards soil restoration, nickel uptake, taming food security through wastewater irrigation and its potentiality.

Responses of Plants to Air Pollution examines the effects of air pollutants, individually and synergistically, on both higher and lower plants.

The subject matter overlaps into a wide range of disciplines including agronomy, plant anatomy, biochemistry, cryptogamic botany, ecology, entomology, forestry, horticulture, landscape architecture.

In the first part "Pollutants and their effects", there are chapters on pollution involving air, trace elements, pesticides, water and salt, cellular and biochemical responses to pollutants and genetics and plant breeding. The second part, "Specific responses to pollutants", deals with vegetable, fruit and flower crops, Cited by:.

The following biological methods of air pollution control are used (Fig. ). Bio-filter: Bio-filteration may be defined as the oxidation of air pollutants as contaminated air flows slowly through porous media such as soils, peat, compost, activated carbon, plastic packing material and ceramic packing material that supports a degradative.This book addresses air pollution's sources and movement; biochemical, cellular, and whole-plant effects, impacts on agricultural and natural systems; and control.
