Bioremediation of metal-laden industrial effluents, in tandem with resource recovery, is another research direction under investigation.

Circular Economy: Can Pollution Be Turned Into Resources?

Coal combustion for energy generation has traditionally been associated with environmental pollution since the onset of the Industrial Revolution. A waste stream (Flue Gas Desulfurization, FGD) derived from coal combustion in modern power plants is particularly enriched in chemical elements […]
