Book Description

Algal and sustainable technologies: Bioenergy, Nannotechnology and Green chemistry is an interdisciplinary overview of the world’s major problems; water scarcity, clean environment and energy and their sustenance remedy measures using microalgae. It comprehensively presents the way to tackle the socio-economic issues including food, feed, fuel, medicine and health and also entails the untapped potential of microalgae in environmental management, bioenergy solution and sustainable synthesis of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products.

This book basically emphasizes the success of algae as wonderful feed stocks of future and provides upto date information and sustainable and recreational outlook towards degrading environment and energy crisis. Applicability of fast emerging algae based nanotechnology in bioremediation and production of nanoparticle (AuNP, AgNP etc) are beautifully described along with latest research and findings.

Key features:

  • The "waste to best to income" strategies are the main concern of the book and take the edge off the problem of pollution, energy and income.
  • Elucidate the sustainable phycoremediation and nanoparticle functions as low cost approach for various ecosystem services.
  • Information regarding pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and other algae based value added product synthesis and fate are comprehensively discussed.
  • Knowledge resource, latest research, findings and prospects presented in an accessible manner for researchers, students, eminent scientists, entrepreneurs, professionals and policy maker.

Biography

Atul Kumar Upadhyay is a scholar in the field of environmental science. He completed his PhD in

the field of phytoremediation and constructed wetland technology at the CSIR-National Botanical

Research Institute, Lucknow, jointly with Kumaun University, Nainital, India. He earned his postgraduation

degree from Dr RML Avadh University, Faizabad, India, in the subject of botany. Dr

Upadhyay has performed research in the construction and design of wetlands and the plant-based

management of water and soil pollution in different states of India, and he has been involved in different

activities related to river water rejuvenation, wastewater treatment, wetland design and soil

management and pollution control. During his research, Dr Upadhyay has published a number of

research papers, articles and chapters in the peer-reviewed journals of national and international

repute. He has also published one author book, edited two books from Springer.

Currently, Atul Kumar Upadhyay is working as a post-doctoral fellow (UGC-DSKPDF) in the

Department of Environmental Science, BBAU (a central university), Lucknow, India, and involved

in working on the different aspects of algal-based sustainable phytoremediation, biofuel and bioenergy

production.

Prof. D. P. Singh, Former Head and Dean of the School for Environmental Sciences, Babasaheb

Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Lucknow, India, is an eminent scholar in the field of environmental

science. He earned his PhD from the Department of Botany, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi,

India. He has worked extensively in the area of wastewater treatment, microbiology, stress physiology,

bioremediation and alternative energy options. He has received several honours and awards to

his credit, including more than 135 research publications in high impact factor journals of national

and international repute. He has supervised more than 24 PhD students and several MSc and MTech

students for their research work. He has delivered invited lectures in different seminars and symposia

and served as a principal investigator for several governments funded projects. Dr Singh has

published five books in the fields of environmental microbiology and biotechnology, stress physiology

and sustainable management of soil and water and edited more than ten books with a scientific

background with Springer, Elsevier, CRC etc.
