With rapid industrialization round the corner, the application of novel biotechnological tools has become a priority today. In the present scenario, the field of applied research basically the biotechnological applications have immensely contributed to solve some of the major problems face by the society as a whole. In this context, some of the important aspects that involve biotechnological applications in solving industrial problems through the aid of novel techniques such as bioleaching, bioremediation, use of bio-surfactants etc. have been discussed through this book. The experience of some highly qualified researches working in this field of industrial biotechnology is presented. In addition to the above scientific disciplines, the book also presents a set of review articles on biofuels from lignocelluloses becomes different aspects of environmental biotechnology that are already practiced by mining industries(chemical industries in particular), GIS based mapping and common scientific principles etc. This book is believed to certainly give necessary concise initial information on the applied subject.
