The safe disposal of distillery waste into the environment, as well as its recycling and management, has become a hot topic in developing countries including India. This gross misconduct creates serious environmental and public health hazards. Thus, adequate management of waste has become a priority of environmental engineers and biotechnologists for environmental safety and sustainable development.
Recent Advances in Distillery Waste Management for Environmental Safety covers specific, advanced, and updated knowledge on various developed individual and/or innovative, green, and emerging plant-microbe-based technologies’ uses for the management and recycling of distillery waste in an environmentally friendly and cost-effective manner for sustainable development. Moreover, this book provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art information on the physicochemical properties, chemical composition, and environmental risks associated with distillery waste. Furthermore, the book also discusses various existing methods and technologies; up-gradation of existing technologies; the advent of newer technologies for the treatment, processing, and disposal of distillery waste; and focus areas for further development. This broad and unique coverage allows treatment firms and regulatory authorities to determine and develop appropriate treatment strategies for site-specific problems of distillery waste remediation.
- Provides practical solutions for the treatment and recycling of distillery waste illustrated by specific case studies
- Focuses on recent industry practices and preferences, along with newer approaches for wastewater treatment
- An instructive compilation of treatment approaches, including advanced physicochemical and integrated/sequential methods
- Covers biocomposting of sludge and effluent, and biodiesel production from distillery waste for recycling and sustainable development
- Emphasizes the relationship of metagenomics with organometallic compounds of distillery waste
