Application of Biotechnology in Food Plant Waste Utilization
Waste treatment was tedious, energy consuming and costly process until biotechnology came to the rescue. Use of various biotechnological approaches like bioremediation and composting not only treated waste in eco-friendly manner but also produced end products of much economic importance. The end products were utilized for different purposes ranging from manure to gas for house hold purposes. Biotechnological approaches result in fast decomposition of waste matter which otherwise wasn’t possible. It destroys or immobilizes contaminants rather than transfers them from one environmental medium to another. Biotechnology, as a whole as, has revolutionized waste management and utilization industry.
