Bioeconomy of Dyes and Bioactive Compounds from Organic Waste (Paperback)
Bioeconomy of Dyes and Bioactive Compounds from Organic Waste examines the application of bioeconomic principles for the extraction of valuable bioactive compounds and dyes from bioresources. The book consolidates the literature on bioresources used for recovering natural dyes and bioactive compounds in a sustainable manner with minimum impact on climate change. The text contains both practical and theoretical aspects of conversion of bioresources to bioactive compounds and dyes, focusing on advanced techniques of waste management along with the transnational transport of waste and its implications on human well-being and climate change. The book begins by introducing the bioeconomy of organic waste, then follows up with sections on extractions of bioactive compounds from organic waste, extractions of organic dyes from organic waste materials, and methods and techniques for extraction, isolation, and characterization. The final section contains chapters on applications of bioactive compounds and natural dyes in various sectors, including the food and textile industries, drug development, and dye-sensitized solar cells. This book serves as a comprehensive reference for chemists, environmental scientists, chemical and biological engineers, environmental policy and decision-makers, medical and health science professionals, waste managers, and more.
