Description

Advances in Aerogel Composites for Environmental Remediation presents both contextual information about aerogels, from common to advanced aerogels, natural to synthetic, along with details about its application in environmental remediation. The book addresses common day-to-day environmental problems and solutions using natural and synthetic aerogel materials. It discusses fabrication of various aerogel composites and their design and applications towards different environmental remediation technologies and compares the properties and advantages of aerogels in contrast to traditional materials. Given the consistent increase in environmental pollution, the need to explore new materials and advances in remediation technology is becoming more urgent.

 This valuable resource bring researchers and practitioners in environmental remediation and environmental science and engineering to the forefront of remediation technologies with a thorough understanding of the benefits of and techniques used in relation to aerogel composites.

Key Features

  • Covers the basic properties of different forms of aerogels, as well as their special properties and fabrication techniques, from basic silica aerogels to present day conventional aerogels
  • Discusses most of the major environmental remediation techniques and the advantage of aerogels for these remediation techniques in comparison to traditional methods
  • Presents future prospects for utilizing aerogels in modern day life and fabrication of tangible products
