Abstract Excessive utilization of synthetic plastics has led to a major detrimental impact on the environment. Plastic pollution and accumulation in water bodies have threatened the survival of marine life. Plastic pollution can be prevented by using biopolymers that are eco-friendly and can be naturally produced by certain living organisms. The biopolymers have environmental advantages over synthetic plastics, such as biodegradability and biocompatibility. In comparison to plants and other micr...

Abstract Microplastics (MPs) as emerging persistent pollutants have been a growing global concern. Although MPs are extensively studied in aquatic systems, their presence and fate in agricultural systems are not fully understood. In the agricultural soils, major causes of MPs pollution include application of biosolids and compost, wastewater irrigation, mulching film, polymer-based fertilizers and pesticides, and atmospheric deposition. The fate and dispersion of MPs in the soil environment are ...

Abstract Mechanochemical synthesis of nano-biochar by ball-milling technology is gaining attention for the sake of its low-cost and eco-friendly nature. Ball milling as a non-/less-solvent technology can propel environmental sustainability and waste valorization into engineered biochar for advanced applications. Scalable production of biochar nanomaterials with superior properties (e.g., 400-500 m2g surface area and 0.5-1000 nm pore sizes) enables diverse applications in the field of energy and ...

Abstract To mitigate the rising level of CO2, biological method of CO2 sequestration is one of the effective methods. Chemolithotrophic microbes are able to fix atmospheric CO2 and precipitated polymorphic minerals like calcite, vaterite and aragonite. Based on this, bioactive glass was synthesized by sol–gel process using polymorphic calcium carbonate mineral precipitated by chemolithotrophic Serratia sp. ISTD04. Characterization of bioactive material and its bioactivity was evaluated by SEM, E...

Abstract The application of pesticides reduces the loss of crops while simultaneously increasing crop productivity. However, the frequent use of pesticides can cause serious environmental problems due to their high accumulative and persistent nature. Recently, microalgae technology has received considerable success in the efficient treatment of pesticides pollution. In this review, the metabolic mechanisms responsible for the removal of pesticides are summarized based on previous studies. Differ...

Abstract The current review explores the potential application of algal biomass for the production of biofuels and bio-based products. The variety of processes and pathways through which bio-valorization of algal biomass can be performed are described in this review. Various lipid extraction techniques from algal biomass along with transesterification reactions for biodiesel production are briefly discussed. Processes such as the pretreatment and saccharification of algal biomass, fermentation, ...

Abstract The increasing load on the ecosystem with activities, such as deforestation, exploited land use, industrialization, and excess waste generation, leads to a global climate shift, which is one of the leading environmental issues of the world today. The basic biomolecules for the production of biofuel include fatty acids, alcohols, and alkanes. Biodiesel is composed of monoalkyl esters of higher chain of fatty acids, produced though the transesterification reaction by alcohol in the presen...

Abstract The extensive application of chlorinated and organophosphate-derived pesticides in agricultural practices leads to increase in productivity of food crops by controlling insects and microbial diseases associated with standing crop. Nevertheless, the higher accumulative, persistency, and biomagnification tendency of these chemically derived pesticides have several adverse effects on soil as well as human health. Therefore bioremediation of these chemicals by microbial means is emerging as...

In the present study, genomic analysis of a previously reported carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestering bacterium Serratia sp. ISTD04 was performed along with exopolysaccharide (EPS) production. Genomic analysis identified key and accessory enzymes responsible for CO2 sequestration. EPS synthesis genes were discovered in the genome and identified 8 putative clusters responsible for lipopolysaccharide, stewartan, emulsan, polysaccharide B, capsular polysaccharide and fatty acid-saccharide production. T...
