Book Description

This book details microbial remediation of azo dyes from wastewater including information on existing methods and technologies, their graduation, the emergence of new technologies, industrial practices, and real-case studies. Emphasis is placed on industrial applications and the elimination of toxic pollutants from wastewater through bacterial approach. Specific aspects discussed include effective separation through new adsorbents / newcomers, ion exchange process, coagulation / formulations, separations, and biological methods from wastewater. This book explains a paradigm shift towards the recovery of materials and energy from azo dye containing wastewater.


  • Provides information on the topic of prokaryotic-based technologies for azo dye degradation in wastewater treatment plant.
  • Describes microbial enzymes and their role in bioremediation of environmental pollutants.
  • Covers industrial acid mine tailing wastes, plastic wastes, distillery, and pulp paper industry effluent.
  • Discusses critical insight into limitations of related technologies.
  • Explains concepts through illustrations, figures, tables, and trivia boxes.

This book aims at Researchers, Professionals, Graduate Students in Bioremediation and Environmental Protection, Waste Management, Applied Microbiology, Botany and Plant Biotechnology.
