Prospects on bio-economy development: biotechnology in agriculture and environmental safety on the basis of NBIC-technol
Author / authors
The article reviews modern trends in bio-economy development on the basis of biotechnologies application in environmental safety and agriculture including the genetically modified and other agricultural crops. The article demonstrates that in the implementation of converging NBIC-technologies in agricultural-industrial system is achieved a synergy effect for the development of the bio-economy in the World and Ukraine in following direc-tions: industrial biotechnology (food biotechnology; biotechnology of sea products; biotechnology to increase oil recovery); environmental biotechnology (cleaning soil from pollution; environmentally friendly biocides to protect materials from bio-damage and oxidation; waste water treatment from toxic metals and radio-nuclides; air cleaning, including also cleaning of enterprises’ vent emissions from volatile organic components, etc.); biotechnology in power engineering (modular biotechnological equipment, including bio-reactors and bio-diesel).
