Green Chemistry and Water Remediation: Research and Applications explores how integrating the principles of green chemistry into remediation research and practice can have a great impact from multiple directions. This volume reviews both common sources of chemical pollution and how using green chemistry as the basis for new or improved remediation techniques can ensure that remediation itself is conducted in a sustainable way. By outlining the main types of chemical pollutants in water and sustainable ways to address them, the authors hope to help chemists identify key areas and encourage them to integrate green chemistry into the design of new processes and products.

In addition, the books highlights and encourages the use of the growing range of green remediation approaches available to experts, helping researchers, planners and managers make informed decisions in their selection of remediation techniques.

Key Features

  • Puts the naturally-aligned fields of green chemistry and environmental remediation in context, providing key background to both
  • Highlights the use of both established and cutting-edge techniques for sustainable water remediation, including nanotechnology, biofiltration and phytoremediation
  • Explores the potential impact sustainability goals in chemical waste production and water remediation


Chemists and chemical engineers working in green chemistry, sustainability, waste management and environmental risk assessment, Environmental chemists and scientists, Aquatic scientists, Researchers in bioremediation across both academia and industry, Environmental toxicologists, Chemical and environmental policy makers and regulators
