CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Microbial remediation of contaminated soils.

Our environment is threatened by thousands of contaminants, mainly as a result of human activities and industrialization. These include both inorganic (e.g. heavy metals) and organic compounds (e.g. polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons and herbicides). It has been shown that...

Book chapter

Brown seaweeds have been highlighted for their abundant production of bioactive substances that may provide novel drugs or drug scaffolds for a range of diseases, particularly cancer. Indeed, a number of promising compounds that can modulate growth arrest or apoptosis have already been isolated. As ...

Petroleum hydrocarbons are the most widespread contaminants in the environment. Soil contamination with crude oil tank bottom sludge (COTBS) represents a significant risk to both human and environmental health. Current traditional approaches only partially resolve the issue as they are inefficient, ...
