About the Conference:
Gavin Conferences welcomes participants from all over the world to attend the CPD accredited "International Conference on Environmental Sustainability and Climate change”. Sustainability 2019 is a two-day congress going to be held at Osaka, Japan from April 22-23, 2019.
Environmental pollution broadly refers to the presence of undesirable substances in the environment which are harmful to man and other organisms. There has been a significant increase in the levels of harmful environmental pollution mostly due to direct or indirect human activities in the recent past. The major sources of environmental pollution are industries, agricultural and other anthropogenic and biogenic sources etc. The pollutants are chemical, biological and physical in nature. Climate change may refer to a change in average weather conditions, or in the time variation of weather within the context of longer-term average conditions. Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have been identified as primary causes of ongoing climate change, often referred to as global warming.
Healthy ecosystems and environments are necessary for the survival of humans and other organisms. Ways of reducing negative human impact are environmentally-friendly chemical engineering, environmental resources management, and environmental protection. Information is gained from green computing, green chemistry, earth science, environmental science and conservation biology. Ecological economics studies the fields of academic research that aim to address human economies and natural ecosystem.
Scope & Importance
The goal of environmental sustainability is to conserve natural resources and to develop alternate sources of power while reducing pollution and harm to the environment. Controlling the environmental pollution, conservation of the environment, and biodiversity are the major focus areas of all the countries around the world. In this context, the importance and impact of biotechnological approaches and the implications of biotechnology must be thoroughly evaluated. Biotechnology is being used to provide alternative cleaner technologies which help to further reduce the hazardous environmental implications of the traditional technologies. Environmental biotechnology deals with the treatment of sewage water, the purification of exhaust gas or the decontamination of soils or groundwater using specific microorganisms. Environmental biotechnology can simply be described as "the optimal use of nature, in the form of plants, animals, bacteria, fungi, and algae, to produce renewable energy, food, and nutrients in a synergistic integrated cycle of profit-making processes where the waste of each process becomes the feedstock for another process"
Environmental biotechnologists apply biological processes to technology to create more sustainable societies. For instance, they may:
- Convert plants into biofuels
- Create plant-based bioplastics
- Discover or engineer plants or microbes optimized for processing environmental contaminants, or for treating toxic waste or sewage
- Use geographic information systems (GIS) to map contaminated sites and the distribution of pollutants
- Develop remediation plans for sites that adhere to environmental regulations
- Create processes to turn waste into biogas or other cleaner energy sources
- Create cleaner industrial activities by replacing chemicals with biological processes, such as replacing chemical bleaching agents with biological enzymes
Aim of the Conference:
This Conference deals with the scientific concepts that underpin modern biotechnologies and how innovations can be exploited for the development of products and processes such as biofuels, novel bioactive compounds and waste conversion technologies. You’ll also explore the bioethical, socio-economic and regulatory aspects of environmental sustainability and the role of biotechnologies in environmental protection.
