Book Description

This new volume explores the integration of bionanomaterials and sustainable resources for the development of new and emerging sustainable processes. It highlights the concept of essential bionanomaterials derived from sustainable resources with examples of interdisciplinary methodologies and research that highlight the reuse of biomass waste as well as the proper usage of green technologies. The volume considers the most recent trends, challenges, and applications in bionanomaterials derived from sustainable sources in energy production and environmental mitigation.

The book looks at state-of-the-art trends in the use of bionanomaterials for renewable energy such as in production of solar energy, for energy harvesting, and for energy conversion and storage. Chapters consider the application of bionanomaterials for the development of improved optical and electrical biosensors. The volume goes on to address the promising use of bionanomaterials for environmental remediation, such as for recovering heavy metals, radioactive metals, and other pollutants from wastewater, from river water, from soils, etc. Other topics include the use of sustainable nanomaterials in the food industry, in the biomedical field, in ecological research, and more.

This volume, Sustainable Nanomaterials for Biosystems Engineering: Trends in Renewable Energy, Environment, and Agriculture, advocates innovative and emerging green technologies for bionanomaterials for an economical and sustainable society for the improvement of humankind in a variety of ways. It will be valuable for academicians, environmentalists, practitioners, NGOs, and industry professionals who are working in the field of biosystems engineering.
