    This book elucidates the growing application of greener technology with a circular economic approach and examines the connection among environment, economy, and ecology for an emerging and supportable human society. It focuses on numerous features of environmental sustainability, and more responsibly, labels the technologies and methods essential to overcome growing environmental challenges including biotechnological methods, cutting-edge research, applications, and procedures.


    • Proposes the latest advances in waste treatment, pollution reduction, and circular economy development based on green technology.
    • Considers the relationship between green technological progress and various forms of circular economy.
    • Describes resource recycling and recovery.
    • Covers advanced technology in bioremediation.
    • Includes reports and case studies highlighting the “how-to” on waste-to-energy generation.

    This book is aimed at professionals and graduate students in environmental engineering, project management, bioremediation, sustainable development, and waste management.
