    A comprehensive resource on different aspects of sustainable carbon capture technologies including recent process developments, environmentally friendly methods, and roadmaps for implementations. It discusses also the socio-economic and policy aspects of carbon capture and the challenges, opportunities, and incentives for change with a focus on industry, policy, and governmental sector. Through applications in various fields of environmental health, and four selected case studies from four different practical regimes of carbon capture, the book provides guidelines for sustainable and responsible carbon capture and addresses current and future global energy, environment, and climate concerns.

She is a member of the World Society of Sustainable Energy Technologies (WSSET), Society of Chemical Industry (SCI), and International Society of Engineering Science and Technology (ISEST). She is involved specifically in thermochemical conversion of biomass to liquid and gaseous fuels in the domain of green technology, energy, and environmental research. She has authored and co-authored journal articles, book chapters, and proceeding papers in peer-reviewed journals.

    Sustainable Carbon Capture "is an excellent introduction to CO2 capture technologies that will be of interest to those new to this field of research and to students studying energy related programmes."  In particular, I am "intrigued" by the discussion of 'Iconic Liquids in Carbon Capture' in Chapter 3. "The coverage is comprehensive with over 350 references," and "is essential reading to someone new in the field."  Chapter 9 covers 'Blue/Bio-Hydrogen and Carbon Capture', which is "a very much debated area in terms of whether or not it is a sustainable approach," making this text "useful in the teaching of graduate degree courses."
