Special Issue: Advances in Bio-Nanotechnology for Remediation of Diverse Environmental Matrices

Published 07 September, 2023


The aim of this Special Issue is to advance our understanding and utilization of bio-nanotechnology in the pursuit of efficient and sustainable remediation across various environmental contexts, with a focus on surface/interface science. Through the synergistic integration of biotechnology and nanotechnology, our objective is to nurture innovative approaches capable of tackling the intricate and pressing environmental issues posed by a wide range of matrices, including soil, water, air, and sediments.

Through the dissemination of cutting-edge research on bio-nanomaterials' synthesis, characterization, and application, this Special Issue will showcase the potential of these materials in contaminant removal and their impact on environmental processes. Furthermore, investigations into the environmental fate and consequences of bio-nanomaterials during remediation will provide valuable insights.

By promoting knowledge exchange and fostering collaborations among researchers and practitioners, this Special Issue aims to drive the development of environmentally friendly and highly effective solutions for remediating diverse environmental matrices. Ultimately, the convergence of bio-nanotechnology offers promising prospects in addressing environmental challenges and contributing to a more sustainable future.
