STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
This study provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the current and forecasted market from 2013 through 2018 for environmental biotechnology products and their use in a variety of waste treatment markets. This study’s information and data provide a total picture of the industry presented herein. The study’s data has been calculated from many sources, including manufacturers that participate in this market. The objective of this study is to provide a comprehensive look at the environmental biotechnology industry with detailed information on manufacturers; application markets; regulations; patents; government, academic and commercial developments; international markets; and innovative end-use biofuel products.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
This study provides a comprehensive overview of the market for environmental biotechnology markets. With ever-increasing volumes of wastewater generated by municipal and industrial wastewater treatment facilities, companies, water authorities and organizations need cost-effective and efficient means of treating waste streams. Environmental biotechnology solutions can treat both organic and toxic wastes found at contaminated sites across the country and worldwide. Other waste treatment applications, including animal waste, grease traps, biofilters for odor control, composting operations and septic tank treatments, are excellent market opportunities for environmental bioproducts that are effective without adversely affecting the environment. Biotechnology promises to offer less expensive solutions for environmental management through natural microorganism, enzyme and supplemental nutrient products along with new developments in biotechnology, including the production of biofuels derived from biotreatment of wastes.
SCOPE OF REPORT
This study contains comprehensive data concerning the products and applications involved in the use of microorganisms, enzymes and nutrients for waste treatment. This study will give insightful information from the perspective of the manufacturer and customer. Major product manufacturers are profiled and application markets are extensively reviewed. Detailed forecasts and analysis provide comprehensive market information on product sales, application markets and customers, potential end-use biofuel production and international opportunities.
Applications for wastewater treatment and bioremediation processes along with other treatment markets will be studied with information about current and future needs. A review of historical and current significance of government regulations, patents, and research and development will show how the market dynamics of environmental management affect future product sales. Also, the growing international markets for microorganism, enzyme and nutrient products will be listed. Information concerning U.S. exports and leading international companies will be analyzed.
This study is intended for anyone interested in the state of the biotechnology industry in environmental management. This study is valuable to those that manufacture and/or distribute environmental biotechnology products including microorganisms, enzymes and nutrients. Manufacturers of competing products such as chemical treatments will also find this study useful to understand the dynamics of this emerging market sector. The report is also designed for those involved in the management and operations of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, including local waste authorities; private water and wastewater management company personnel; industrial manufacturers such as chemical producer and pulp and paper processors, as well as farming, livestock and food service; and septic operators who must find treatment alternatives to deal with significant amounts of waste. With the increased use of innovative technologies for the cleanup of contaminated soils and groundwater, consultants, engineering contractors, project managers and government personnel can analyze the usefulness of bioremediation products and services as reliable and cost-effective alternatives to traditional cleanup approaches.
Likewise, those participating in research and development activities through academic institutions, government programs or private sector initiatives are presented with new developments and technological advances in potential new products and applications. Investors, banks, legislators, and real estate developers and others who require information about waste treatment and cleanup can use this study to assess the financial risks and rewards of environmental biotechnology products and services.
