Nanotechnology the Future of Sustainable Renewable Energy Book Excerpt:

The sun is an ultimate source of clean energy which is available in abundance. One hour of solar energy retrieved from sunlight is equivalent to the world's total energy consumption in a complete year (i.e., 16 TW). The development of low cost and highly efficient photovoltaic technology is a vital scientific goal and researchers have been trying to achieve it in the past two decades. The novel synthesis technique for preparation of solar cells has attracted significant interest because of their smart features which include low-temperature synthesis, synthetic variability, and the probability of fabricating flexible, lightweight, and green photovoltaic cells. Nanotechnology is the technology of future. It has a wide ranging domain of applications in almost every field of human activity which include chemical engineering, materials science, medicine, electronics, energy sector, etc. Presently, the use of nanotechnology in manufacturing of solar cells is gaining a significant attention due to its ability to provide cost-efficient and eco-friendly green energy solutions. Each chapter of this book recapitulates the applications of nanotechnology for development of green energy solutions. Introductory chapters of the book also contain the applications of nanotechnology beyond photovoltaics, and the key fabrication techniques, followed illustration of particular nanostructure type produced by application of a certain synthesis technique. The book also examines the benefits of each nanotechnology technique with a stress on probable future avenues of research.

Green nanomaterials are classed as nanomaterials with no environmentally harmful, toxic, properties. The photocatalysis of nanomaterials involves photo-conduction value in efficient removal/degradation of noxious pollutants. Green nanotechnology has objectives for the development of products and processes which are environmentally friendly, economically sustainable, safe, energy-efficient, and produce little waste or emissions. Such products and processes are based on renewable materials and/or have a low net impact on the environment. Green functionalized nanomaterials, formed by a combination of nanomaterials with natural materials or are derived through a green source, are the new trends in the remediation of pollutants in environmental industries. This has the effect of making photoactive nanomaterials work under UV/sunlight radiation in order to produce reactive radical species that rapidly remove pollutants by redox mechanism. Green Functionalized Nanomaterials for Environmental Applications focuses on recent developments in the area of fabrication of green nanomaterials and their properties. It also looks at ways of lowering the risk of exposure of green functionalized nanomaterials. This needs to be pursued in the future for investigating and assessing health risks, which may be due to exposure to green nanomaterials.
