Textbook Of Environmental Biotechnology by Pradipta K. Mohapatra
Book Summary:

Environmental Biotechnology was conceived after scanning the available literature in the area, which indicated that references in the subject are scanty and highly sporadic. This book provides comprehensive information on the different aspects of environmental biotechnology and also discusses the processes and new technologies dealing with pollutants, degradation and resource recovery.

It has been designed to serve as a good study material for the students and researchers in the field. At the end of the book there is an exhaustive reference section to guide the readers for additional reading.

Audience of the Book :
This book is good study material for the students and researchers in the Environmental Biotechnology
