Chapter
Pesticide is a complex word that encompasses all compounds which are applied to destroy or regulate pests, which include insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Pesticide is one of the intensive anthropogenic sources of pollution in the environment which affects the population of flora and fauna and ultimately negatively affects human health. Man...
Chapter
Bioenergy production utilizing the waste biomass is a sustainable alternative of fossil fuels and considered as a novel approach to meet global energy needs. Bioenergy is normally produced from the microbial mediated fermentation process and the biological wastes become the substrate for the bio-reactions. Utilization of microbial catabolic biochem...
Chapter
Excessive anthropogenic needs of various useful yet environmentally harmful materials such as plastic put tremendous pressure on the planet, eventually causing multiple environmental and health impacts. This chapter aims to elucidate and focus on a possible emerging solution—nanocellulose—to curb all such environmental problems. In recent years nan...

The purification of the primary treated domestic sewage was performed in the present study through the horizontal sub-surface flow constructed wetland (CW) of 10 × 3.5 m dimension. The study was performed using three setups of CW 1 (Unplanted CW), CW 2 (CW planted with macrophyte Typha latifolia ), and CW 3 (CW planted with two species of macrophyt...

This chapter reviews the occurrence of groundwater contaminants, including natural and manmade. Contaminants found in groundwater cover a broad range of physical, inorganic, and organic chemicals and radioactive parameters. The increasing trends of industrial effluents, including municipal sewage, are the main sources for organic contaminants in gr...

Groundwater fluoride contamination has gained the wide attention of researchers in the recent era due to its toxicity, persistent nature, and bioaccumulation. Several pathways input fluoride into water and its enhancing concentration makes water unfit and undesirable for drinking purposes. The availability of fluoride in groundwater is due to fluor...
Chapter
Researchers are paying increasing attention to emerging contaminant (EC) residues as potential pollutants because they often have physicochemical behavior that is similar to that of other harmful xenobiotics, which can produce adverse effects. Due to their pseudo-persistence and its biological activity, the ECs (including pharmaceuticals and person...
Chapter
Human activities and natural processes release a large number of organic pollutants, such as hydrocarbons, halogenated compounds, solvents, pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and chloroforms, in the environment. These hazardous organic pollutants are a threat to human beings, animals, and the environment. These contaminants provide major...

Full-text available
Globally, organic substances are one of the major pollutants in the contamination of water bodies. Some of the major sources of organic pollutants are domestic sewage, industrial effluent from various industries like the pharmaceutical industry, pulp and paper, coalmines, food processing, fertilizers, and agricultural run‐off containing pesticides....

Modern agricultural practices, rapid industrialization, power plants, and other anthropogenic activities add a considerable amount of toxic heavy metals into the environment. In contrast to organic compounds, metals cannot be degraded, and their clean up requires removal. The effects of toxic metals are observed on all forms of living organisms and...

The contamination of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems by arsenic (As) is a very sensitive environmental issue due to its adverse impact on organisms. Although arsenic contamination is not only of anthropogenic origin, the problem of arsenic contamination in water sources in many areas has been considered calamitous because of its significant risk...

Full-text available
Heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, and chromium are considered highly toxic to the environment. They can readily degrade air, water, and soil quality, subsequently causing adverse impacts on plants, animals, and humans. Heavy metals are released into the environment via several industrial wastes, including mining, tailing, agricu...

The present study was performed to document the different ethnomedicinal plants used by Gond and Madia Gond tribes in the Gadchiroli District of Maharashtra (India). After screening, a total of 120 persons belonging to Gond and Madia tribes were interviewed for the use of medicinal plants. As a result of this interaction, a total of 79 medicinal pl...

Water is the critical ingredient to all life on the earth, and it is without substitutes. With increasing demands and only a limited supply, freshwater is becoming more and more difficult to come by. Climate change can be defined as the change in time variation of weather over a time period. It is caused due to increasing the temperature, evaporati...

The places, population, and flora and fauna are at stake because of climate change. Natural resources regulate the economic, social, and cultural lives. Water is a basic need in everyday life, and its cycle is inextricably linked with climate change. The main concern is the changing scenario of the water resources and the factors supporting the con...

Genetic engineering is a molecular technique of altering the existing genome by inserting a novel gene from external. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are at the center stage of international debate because it causes many social, economic, and ecological problems. The commercialization of GMOs created more and more ethical dilemmas related to...

This study was performed to assess water quality in the Narmada River, the third-longest river in India. Water samples were collected from 6 major sampling stations with 17 sampling points. Nine water quality parameters were analyzed to calculate the water quality index (WQI), followed by multivariate statistical evaluation. The results indicated t...

Pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) are the major emerging contaminants that affect the different component of the environment. The group of PPCPs includes a large number of medicines such as antibiotics, analgesics, antiseptics, antidepressants, and personal care products. These compounds are released into the environment and there...

The present research is concerned with the evaluation of water quality of the Narmada River. Water samples throughout its stretch right from origin point at Amarkantak to Badwani covering 10 sampling stations with 34 sub-sites of Narmada was sampled for water quality. The physicochemical parameters such as pH (8.38), EC (356 (252.8 mg/L), Alkalinit...

Water is one of the most indispensable resources and is the elixir of life. Modern civilization, industrialization, urbanization and increasing populations have led to rapid degradation of groundwater quality. It is estimated that approximately one-third of the world's population use groundwater for drinking. Those around Varanasi depend totally on...

Cellulase is the largest group of industrial enzyme used worldwide for the degradation of cellulose. Since many industries use this enzyme for the production of good quality of products, hence the demand for cellulase is increasing day by day. Cellulases are preferred for different purposes by industries which include paper recycling, cotton, texti...
