Special Issue "Non-toxic Materials For Planet Earth"
A special issue of Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417). This special issue belongs to the section "Environmental and Sustainable Science and Technology".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2019.
Over the past 100 years, many toxic materials have been developed and used in multiple applications leading to severe pollution of land, water bodies and air. This has posed serious health challenges to all the inhabitants, humans or otherwise, of planet earth as these materials have entered our food chain as per recent studies. The present issue is launched with a specific aim to promote the research, education and usage of environment safe materials. Present issue thus welcomes all the articles related to development, processing, characterization and application of all categories of materials which are non-toxic and sustainable for making our planet an excellent place to live. Particular topics covered in this issue include but not restricted to following:
- Research into non-toxic materials
- Lightweight Materials for greenhouse gas mitigation
- Energy efficient Processing Techniques
- Materials to mitigate water pollution
- Materials to mitigate land pollution
- Miscellaneous topic related to thematic title
Reviews, both mini and regular, are invited on any of the above topics.
