Series: Advances in Environmental Research
BISAC: SCI026000

This book contains eight selected chapters covering advances in environmental research. Chapter One examines recent advances in soil remediation using nano zero-valent iron (nZVI) activated peroxydisulfate (PDS) and peroxymonosulfate (PMS). Chapter Two reviews the current knowledge and future trends of bioplastics. Chapter Three is a comprehensive review of the various aspects of inhalable ambient particulate matter. Chapter Four is an overview of bioethanol production from agricultural wastes. Chapter Five examines the environmental occurrence and toxicological effects of benzo(a)pyrene. Chapter Six reviews how the impact of carbon dioxide emissions worsen perceptions of climate-friendly material selection, with a focus on the Ghanaian perspective. Chapter Seven is a conceptual framework for a multi-criteria optimization model for office building development through climate-friendly material selection. Chapter Eight is a kinetic study of dry flue gas desulfurization by various sorbents using a random pore model.
