Call for abstract

Energy shortage, environmental crisis, and meeting customer demands have driven people to find facile, low-cost, environmentally friendly, and nontoxic routes to produce novel functional materials that can be commercialized in the near future. Converting biowaste into useful materials through carbonization technique could meet the demands in energy and water sector. This event will provide platform to gust on the various technologies evolved to use biowaste into useful products through carbonization

Also, the symposium will follow three workshops to train the junior faculty and students on novel technologies. The event is organized by National Centre of Excellence in Analytical Chemistry, University of Sindh, Jamshoro, Pakistan and will take place at Hotel Indus, Hyderabad.

Key area for symposuim

1. Biocarbons based solid acid catalysts for biofuels conversion.
2. Biocarbons and other efficient materials for water and wastewater treatment.
3. Preparation methods of biocarbons: (Hydrothermal carbonization (hydrochar), Pyrolysis (biochar), Gasification).
4. Economic aspects, and entrepreneurial opportunities.
