Biomass-Derived Materials for Environmental Applications presents state-of-the-art coverage of bio-based materials that can be applied to address the growing global concern of pollutant discharge in the environment. The book examines the production, characterization and application of bio-based materials for remediation. Organized clearly by type of material, the book includes details on lignocellulosic materials, natural clays, carbonaceous materials, composites and advanced materials from natural origins. Readers will find an interdisciplinary and practical examination of these materials and their use in environmental remediation that will be valuable to environmental scientists, materials scientists, environmental chemists, and environmental engineers alike.
- Highlights a wide range of synthetic methodologies, as well as physicochemical and engineered features of bio-based materials for environmental purposes
- Provides in-depth examination of bio-based materials and their characteristics and advantages in environmental remediation
- Covers a range of specific materials, including background information, key results, critical discussions, conclusions and future perspectives
