Novel Materials and Technologies for CO2 and Waste Management

This issue is now closed for submissions.


Solid waste disposal, air, and water pollution are the major environmental problems caused due to rapid industrialization. Globally, increasing concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, solid waste dumping, and harmful chemicals in water bodies have been reported. This has serious environmental consequences for human life and the natural eco-system. Advancement of research and innovation in the area of carbon capture, conversion, and sequestration are an essential part of a holistic approach to a sustainable energy future. Handling solid, liquid, and gaseous wastes from various sectors requires a multidisciplinary approach with a wide range of technological solutions. Novel materials and technologies and solutions would help in the effective management of waste, water pollution and carbon emissions from the industry. Developing a greener and more efficient solvents/sorbents/catalysts are the focus of carbon sequestration research. The use of nature-inspired organic materials for waste minimization is a topic of great interest for the scientific and industrial community.

This Special Issue will particularly focus on the novel technological solutions and the role of nature-inspired solutions in addressing environmental problems. We welcome original research articles, review articles, and case studies on recent trends in carbon management, water pollution management, and waste management.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Nature inspired organic adsorbents
  • Green processes and materials
  • Physical, chemical, and biological solutions
  • Biotechnological approaches
  • Nanotechnological solutions
  • Renewable energy-based solutions
  • Methods /process for Carbon capture, conversion, storage, and sequestration
  • Methods/process for water pollution management
  • Methods/process for waste management
  • Mechanism, Modeling and thermodynamic aspects
  • Economics and optimization of experimental/pilot scale systems
