The scope of this session covers nanotechnology for use in the environment and agriculture. This will include synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials (inorganic-based nanomaterials; carbon-based nanomaterials; organic-based nanomaterials; and composite-based nanomaterials), nanoparticles, nanobiomaterials, porous nanopolymers and their applications in addressing problems and challenges in agriculture as well as environmental sciences.

The main topics include but are not limited:

  • Nanotechnology for environmentally-conscious and sustainable materials, polymers, and composites
  • Nanotechnology for air pollution
  • Nanotechnology for clean water and wastewater treatment including membrane technology (nanofilters, nanotubes, nanofiber, and nano-adsorbents)
  • Nanotechnology to prevent pollution such as eco-friendly materials and green production
  • Role of nanomaterial in the environment in terms of the field of monitoring of environmental pollutants using nanotechnology and environmental pollution elimination using nanotechnology
  • Nanotechnology for crop production
  • Nanotechnology for crop protection
  • Nanofertilizers for crop nutrition
  • Nanopesticides
  • Nanotechnology for the remediation of heavy metal
