Environmental Biotechnology

EB profile

Environmental Biotechnology deals with preservation and restoration of fauna, flora, and their environment. The utilisation of environmental biotechnology has significantly affected the world and will be one of the most valuable tools for improving the quality of life for future generations by providing cost effective mechanisms for preserving and restoring natural resources. Biotechnology will also revolutionise many industrial processes by providing the ability to produce energy and chemicals through green processes that will minimise the impact of industrial activities on the environment and reduce the world′s dependence on non renewable energy resources. It will also enable the use of biological systems for the remediation of contaminated water and soils that result from many anthropogenic activities. The journal is devoted to biotechnological processes that preserve, protect and restore nature, mainly:

• cytogenetic and molecular diagnostics of living and ancient organisms,
• managing genetic variation of endangered species of flora and fauna,
• gene banking and species restoration by means of genome engineering,
• remediation in environmental protection,
• genotoxicity of organic chemical compounds,
• treatment of sewage, sewage sludge and solid wastes,
• assessment of impact engineering and biotechnological undertakings on the state and functioning of ecosystems.

Our aim is to learn more about how to preserve and restore natural resources, applying modern science and technology and holding to the basic truth that nature is a complex, integrated system, functioning in ways that we intend to understand better.
