Key Highlights

White biotechnology is in a position to dominate the wastewater market because of increasing preference for zero-discharge solutions.
•With an aim towards attaining a sustainable future, industries should come up with innovative ideas to manufacture greener products.
•White biotechnology has emerged as the best solution towards achieving sustainability.
Despite significant industry challenges, biotechnological solutions will supersede technologies that pollute or deplete finite biosphere resources.
•To achieve maximum industrial sustainability, important issues related to the growth of biotechnology will need to be addressed immediately.
•Such issues include the prerequisites for long-term strategy, favourable economic and regulatory framework conditions, and public awareness and acceptance.
Economic viability is necessary for biotechnology to successfully achieve sustainable development in industrial production.
•Modern biotechnology offers innovative solutions to create cleaner and greener industrial products and processes; it provides potential for industrial sustainability in the most economic manner possible.
•Biotechnology solutions address key pain points, such as high energy intensity and operational costs, as these solutions consume less energy and are not expensive to operate.

Scope and Segmentation

•Research scope primarily revolves around white biotechnology.
•This study discusses the efficient use of biotechnology in water and wastewater treatment (potable, domestic, and discharge) in the municipal, industrial, and residential sectors.
•The study analyses the global advancement of biotechnology, covering Europe, the Americas, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa.
•Water and wastewater treatment (WWT) will increase favourably in the future, with the advent of enzymes and microorganisms, which will accelerate the cleaning process, and thereby enhance environmental protection by 2020.

Background of Biotechnology

Cells are the building blocks of all living organisms.
DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), the genetic material of almost all living things, directs cell construction and operation.
DNA contains information for making proteins. It directs cell processes by determining the production of specific proteins.
Organisms and cellular components are exploited to develop new technologies.
Biotechnology harnesses these biological components to develop products that are beneficial to industries.

Definition and Roadmap

The biotechnology timeline commenced during World War I with the use of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeast) in the brewing and fermenting of alcoholic substances.
Biotechnology is the incorporation of living organisms to develop or modify products, by applying scientific and engineering principles with the aid of biological agents.
Today, biotechnology has penetrated applications in the healthcare, agriculture, manufacturing, and environmental industries.
