Webinar Series on Waste-Derived Nanomaterials: Part-II - BIO2NANO: BioResources to Sustainable Nanoproducts- Interventions, Current Status & the Future Perspective
The webinar will provide an overview of some of the most recent trends, challenges, and applications in the field of bio(nano)products derived from sustainable resources.
The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) is organising a webinar titled "BIO2NANO: BioResources to Sustainable Nanoproducts- Interventions, Current Status & The Future Perspective" on October 20, 2021 from 2 - 4 PM. The webinar aims to provide an overview of some of the most recent trends, challenges, and applications in the field of bio(nano)products derived from sustainable resources.
Nanotechnology continues to have a broad impact on nearly all sectors of the global economy from electronics, energy, to medicine, health and agriculture. In recent years, sufficient growth has been achieved in the area of nanotechnology, although the development of economic and environmentally benign processes for the scale-up production of nanomaterials and nanoproducts is one of the biggest challenges. The use of low cost and alternative renewable precursors like lignocellulosic biomass, algae and their residues for the production of bio(nano)products is the way forward owing to their flexibility, the ease and the variety of procedures through which the biosynthesis of valuable nanoproducts is implemented. Despite various advances in the field of bio-derived nanoproducts, there is still a huge need for innovative greener synthesis of bio(nano)products to develop an economical and sustainable society. Although still burgeoning, the nano based products from renewable natural resources may thrive and see dramatic developments in the near future.
