BASIC OVERVIEW ON ENVIRONMENTAL BIOTECHNOLOGY
Environmental biotechnology is the application of biotechnology for solving environmental problems. The problem under consideration may be natural forced problems or by man-made. Pollution, gas leakage, and crude oil spills are the most recurring environmental problems. Naturally, outbreaks of viruses or bacteria or other threatful microbes are all falls under natural forced problems. It deals with the scientific study of environment with living creatures, pollution, remediation of harmful chemicals, waste management, exploitation of natural resources and their effects, negative effects of nature’s act, and so on. Mitigation of environmental problems either created from human interference or non-human interference, biotechnology tools and techniques is the aim of environmental biotechnology.
The microbes present in air and in liquid and solid waste may be pathogenic or non-pathogenic. Their evaluation and treatment of waste material and transformation into wealth or non- harmful products is a major dimension of environmental biotechnology. Environmental biotechnology can accept all environmental problems with biotechnology.
