Special Issue on Microbial Bioremediation in Polar Environment

Despite our relatively recent arrival in the Arctic and Antarctic, human activities (increasing exploitation,production,transportation,and storage of oil) have already produced significant anthropogenic impacts on these highly vulnerable environments where oil spill represents one of the greatest threats. Several techniques,including physical, chemical,and biological methods,are used to recover spilled oil from the cold environments.Bioremediation is a promising option for remediation since it is effective and economic in removing oil with less undue environment1 damages.However.it is a relatively slow process in cold region sand the degree of success depends on a number of factors,including the properties and fate of oil spilled in cold environment, and, in particular themicrobia1 activity. The microorganisms that inhabit Arctic and Antarctic environments are important not only because of the unique species they represent, but also because of their diverse and unusual physiological and biochemical properties. In terms of applied science, the unique cold-adapted enzymes and other molecules of polar microorganisms provide numerous opportunities for biotechnological development (e.g. bioremediation).. For these reasons, polar bioremediation microbiology is a thriving branch of science with the potential to provide new insights into a wide range of basic and applied issues in environmental protection. In this context, it is timely to review and highlight the progress so far and discuss exciting future perspectives. In this special issue, some of the leaders in the field describe their work, ideas and findings.

Special Issue on Bioremediation of Industrial Waste Water

Bioremediation of Industrial Waste Water Research explores water scarcity solutions from a holistic system oriented viewpoint. From the sustainable management of natural water resources to the development of the technologies and infrastructure for the production of clean fresh water from natural and waste water. The journal accepts innovative and sound theoretical research on different water issues, exploring potential alternative water sources via recycling and reuse of wastewater with a focus on arid and semiarid environments and the following topics; water desalination, drinking water treatment, wastewater treatment, water resources planning, investigation and management. The journal has a multi-disciplinary approach and includes research, results, theory, models, analysis, applications and reviews. Work in lab or field is applicable. Of particular interest are manuscripts relating to environmental concerns.

About the issue

The topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Treatment processes for water and wastewaters
  • Water quality standards
  • Studies on inland, tidal or coastal waters
  • Environmental restoration
  • Liquid and Hazardous waste management
  • Analysis of the interfaces between sediments and water, and water/atmosphere interactions
  • Proteomics & Genomics
