The International Debate on Environmentally Sustainable Green and Cost Effective Smart Synthesis of Carbon Nanomaterials (Cnms) From Waste Plastic and its Multiple Applications
In the present time the management of solid waste is the one of the most alarming condition which withdraws the attention of the international scientific community. In developing countries it is becoming more and more critical. However, the non-biodegradable nature of the plastic waste, one of the hazardous waste in the food supply waste chain (FSWC), it has created challenge in front of scientific community. In order to this, different types of waste can be categorized such as industrial, agricultural, sanitary and solid urban residues based on their origin. Solid wastes such as plastic, food waste, agriculture waste are exceptional materials rich in the carbon content. Fortunately the high carbon content present in plastic waste, gives us an opportunity to synthesize and produce cost-effective, environmentally-friendly, and self-sustaining CNMs, and value added fuel. Carbon nanomaterials, such as graphene, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), crystalline diamond, and diamond-like carbon, all display exceptional electrochemical properties which have resulted in their widespread application. Moreover, excellent properties of carbon nanomaterials, such as large surface-to-volume ratio, high conductivity, and electron mobility at room temperature, have led to numerous advances in many research areas such as energy, biomedical, polymer nanocomposites, water purification, biosensors and etc. Here we are proposing to “Green, cost effective and smart synthesis of carbon nanomaterials (CNMs) from “Waste Plastic” and its multiple applications. Our main focused in the remediation of solid waste into high quality carbon nanomaterials applications for multiple purposes.
