Suppose this world is nothing more than a lab to experiments. People have used the land in many ways, but do not consider their responsibility to protect it.

The goods used for various purposes are thrown away after fulfilling the purpose. Industries have also emitted contaminated water and gas regardless of others.

So, What is Grey Biotechnology?

Gray biotechnology is an important part of biotechnology dedicated to protecting plants, other animals, the environment and the entire nature from such reckless human culprits using microorganisms and also plants for the disposal of different substances.

It has made an invaluable contribution to the protection of the environment by reducing the over-exploitation and pollution of the ecosystem.

As its main objective is environmental balance, it has a leading role in the conservation of polluted environment and conservation of biodiversity.

Following are the Application of Grey Biotech:

No industries are set up to pollute the environment but the environment becomes polluted due to inability of managing the emissions of gases and sewage.

Due to the growing population and human settlement, there is not enough space to establish industrial zones apart from human settlements. Even if sewage can be managed, it is not possible to control the gas coming out of it.

Therefore, gray biotechnology has a role to play in managing the pollution from such industries and encouraging the use of biofuels as much as possible.

Since most of the pollution comes from the industries, its management has taken on a challenging responsibility.


In order to make daily life easier, people have invented and used many alternatives.

Failure to manage such facilities can lead to problems in the long run, such as the use of plastic products. In fact, today people throw away all kinds of goods, tools and useless things indiscriminately.

Some people throw such garbage in nearby bushes, ditches, rivers, streams and seas, while others throw it in the open places.

As harmful gases emitted from such wastes increase environmental pollution and spread various diseases, Grey Biotechnology has been working on recycling, reusing and disposing of such wastes.

The method of making compost manure from easily digestible goods is also economically beneficial.


The existence of a micro-organism is as significant as terrifying creatures in relation to ecosystems and biodiversity.

Only a balanced biodiversity can form a sound environment. But when people throw garbage indiscriminately without paying attention to such things, some important aquatic animals, terrestrial animals and plants become rare.

It is important to understand that human life existence is impossible on earth without other creatures.

Grey biotechnology has been managing waste to protect the lives of organisms from environmental pollution.

Conservation of biodiversity is the way of preserving life existence. 

Not only the limited creatures that directly benefit us, but also bacteria, fungi, viruses and other predatory animals are equally important to the ecosystem. Therefore, grey biotechnology seems to have made a relentless effort to save the desolate earth. 


If the air we inhale, water we drink, food we eat and the environment we stay are polluted then we don’t need to travel any more to get further diseases and infections.

Grey biotechnology eliminates the risk of getting sick by removing environmental pollution even if it does not invent drugs like other branches of biotechnology.

Grey biotechnology is considered more important for health than a hospital as just infected patients are treated in hospitals but this technology protects all against possible future infections.

Some infections can even be spread by hospital waste.

Therefore, Sanitization is much more concerned.
