About this book

One of the most pervasive problems afflicting people throughout the world is inadequate access to clean water. Addressing these problems calls out for a tremendous amount of research to be conducted to identify robust new methods of purifying water at lower cost and with less energy, while at the same time minimizing the use of chemicals and impact on the environment. Green and sustainable water remediation is a rapidly growing field of interest to all stakeholder groups including governmental agencies, corporations, academia, environmental consultants and public interest groups. Green Materials for Sustainable Water Remediation and Treatment presents a focused set of articles covering a range of topics in the field of green materials for water remediation including the synthesis of new materials, modification of natural materials and use of clean technologies for water purification.
