Eco-Materials Processing & Design VII
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This collection offers materials researchers and end-users a wealth of new knowledge encompassing the whole spectrum of ecology, eco-materials, nano-materials, bio-materials, recycling, environmental protection and materials related to energy conversion.
The collection is divided into seven sections: The first section deals with photocatalysts for controlling air pollution, water pollution, de-odorizing, self-cleaning, power light sources, and standardization of the methodology of photocatalytic reactivity. The second section deals with the incorporation of end-life strategies into materials design. The third section covers the use of non-hazardous alternatives as substitutes for traditionally hazardous components. The fourth section covers the treatment of waste materials. The fifth presents a vision of manufacturing as using more environmentally-friendly processing (eco-processing) and eco-materials design; as well as biomaterials. The final section covers energy-related or energy-conversion related materials such as hydrogen energy/fuel-cells or batteries. Altogether, this makes the book essential reading for all of those who care about preserving the world for future generations.
