About this book

Using renewable fuels and materials, drinking clean water and food, and breathing safe air are major issues for a sustainable world. This book reviews biodiesel production from microalgae, a promising energy source that does not compete with food production. Several advanced techniques to clean polluted waters, such as electrochemistry, ferrites photocatalysis and low-cost filtration are presented. Chapters also show various living organisms used as bioindicators of toxic metals. Decreasing ecotoxicity of pesticides using suitable surfactants is reviewed. The last chapter evidences new pollutants in urban soils, halogenated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.​

About the authors

Dr. Eric Lichtfouse is Editor of scholarly journals and series in environmental chemistry and agriculture. He is heading publication assistance services and teaching scientific writing in Europe and the USA. He has done research in organic geochemistry, soil carbon dynamics and phytoremediation. Dr. Jan Schwarzbauer is Editor of the journal 'Environmental Earth Sciences ' and Subject Editor of 'Journal of Soils and Sediments'. After studying chemistry at the University of Hamburg, he is working since 1998 at the RWTH Aachen University leading as full professor the group 'Enviromental Organic Geochemistry'. Dr. Didier Robert is professor in organic chemistry and green chemistry at the University Paul Verlaine-Metz (France). He is associate editor of the Journal of Photocatalysis Sciences and its research activities are devoted to the decontamination of air and water by photochemical processes, especially by photocatalysis. He is also editor of the biannual magazine "UniversCity" published by UPV-Metz, dedicated to Cultures and Sciences.
