This book consists of full research papers submitted by scientists/faculty/research scholars who attended the conference on "Earth and Environment: Pollution and Prevention" held at Amity University, Noida from January 28-30, 2014 and had their abstracts published in the conference proceedings. The selected contributions mainly address contemporary issues related to environmental contamination such as industrial wastewater characterization and treatment, microplastics, temporal mount of air pollutants, atmospheric EC, ecofriendly catalytic technology for textile waste, dairy industry, waste water treatment, industrial air pollution, and plant isoprene emissions. The eight studies in the book will be of interest to environmental pollution researchers and students, as well as scientists interested in the proceedings from the" Earth and Environment: Pollution and Prevention" meeting.
