Sustainable Metal Extraction from Waste Streams

By (Author) Garima Chauhan, Perminder Jit Kaur, Prof. K. K. Pant, K.D.P. Nigam


Provides a comprehensive overview on developing sustainable practices for waste minimization via green metal extraction from waste streams. This book introduces readers to sustainable management and defines the challenges as well as the opportunities in waste stream management. It starts by covering conventional technologies for metal extraction then focuses on emerging tools and techniques such as green adsorption, bioleaching, and chelation. It also discusses the scale-up and process intensification of metal extraction from waste streams from process design to pilot plan.

Advances in Carbon Capture and Utilization

(Editors) Prof. D. Pant, Prof. A. Kumar, Prof. K. K. Pant, Prof. A. K. Agarwal


This book focuses on the recent trends in carbon management and up-to-date information on different carbon management strategies that lead to manage increasing concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide. The growing evidence of climate change resulting from the continued increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration has made it a high profile political–social and trade issue. The mean global average earth temperature rose by 0.6± 20C during the second half of the century with the rate of 0.170C/decade. As per GISS data in the year of 2017, it rose 0.90C (1.62 0F) above the 1951-1980 mean global temperature.
