Char-Based Composites: Production, Characterization, Limitations and Emerging Applications

W. A. K. G. Wan Azlina

Char-based Composites: Production, Characterization, Limitations and Emerging Applications provides the reader with a wide spectrum of information on char and biochar-based composites. Emphasis is placed on their production, characterization, applications, and limitations towards commercialization. The chapters concentrate on char/biochar as nanofillers in composite materials which are currently used in various advanced technologies including nanotechnology, environmental sectors (gas cleaning and wastewater treatments), energy storage, and solid fuel and catalysts. The book will be a valuable reference resource for academic and industrial researchers, as well as biotechnologists working in the development of advanced char and biochar-based composite materials.
