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.
