Description

The objective of this joint conference of environmental best practices is to bring together researchers from academic, governmental and industrial institutions to discuss new developments and results in the fields of environmental remediation, wastewater treatment, alternative energy sources and environmental stewardship. It is anticipated that attendees will develop a knowledge and understanding of a broad spectrum of environmental applications and solutions to the challenges facing the world today.
This conference is best suited for individuals working in the fields of:


Biology
Chemistry
Engineering
Government Regulation
Project Management
The Conference will consist of the following types of contributions:


Invited plenary and survey papers, each giving a representative overview of a problem area with case studies;
Submitted papers within the scope of the conference;
Poster sessions within the scope of the conference; and
Discussion sessions on selected important topics of general interest.
The Environmental Best Practices Conference will also present the introduction of the Environmental Biotechnology journal. Environmental Biotechnology encompasses, among others, preservation and restoration of fauna, flora, and their environment. Utilisation of Environmental Biotechnology has significantly impacted 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 of the nature preservation, protection and restoration, mainly to:


cytogenetic and molecular diagnostics of living and ancient organisms,
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 of engineering and biotechnological undertakings on the state and functioning of ecosystems.
The aim of Environmental Biotechnology is to learn more about how to preserve and restore natural resources, apply modern science and technology while bearing in mind that nature is a complex, integrated system, functioning in ways that we intend to understand better.
