Non Conventional Textile Waste Water Treatment Book Review:

Environmental pollution is known as any deterioration in the physical, chemical and biological quality of the environment. The pollutants fall under the broad category of xenobiotic compounds and are released into the environment by the actions of human and occur at concentrations higher than "natural levels". Environmental pollution can be implied by any alternation in the surroundings. All types of environmental pollution may affect directly or indirectly the living organisms and particularly human health. The textile industry is amongst the major contributors to environmental pollution but it is very important for the nation's economy. This book provides the latest research on a non-conventional method effective in treatment of textile wastewater. (Imprint: Nova)

Lightweight Materials from Biopolymers and Biofibers Book Review:

For the first time, this book presents state-of-the-art research and technologies on the utilization of materials from biobased resources and weight reduction of industrial products, the two interest-arousing aspects in material industries nowadays. Dependence on petroleum-derived products and urgent need in reduction of energy consumption propelled the development of light-weight products from renewable biobased materials, including carbohydrates, proteins, bio-derived synthetic polymers. Fibrous materials in micro- and nano- scales and their production have been summarized in this book. Due to their high mechanical properties comparing to films and particles, fibers are the most widely utilized forms of a variety of materials and have been employed as reinforcements in concrete, plastics and other materials for industrial applications. Proper utilization of fibers will effectively reduce the weights while preserving or even enhancing the mechanical properties of industrial products. This book introduces various fiber production approaches, including direct extraction of cellulosic fibers and regeneration of protein fibers from biobased resources, polymerization and fiber spinning of bio-derived monomers, and direct synthesis fibers from microorganisms.
