International Hellenic University Greece

Dr. George Z. Kyzas is a professor in the Department of Chemistry, International Hellenic University (IHU), Greece. He studied Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh), Greece. He obtained his BSc, MSc, and Ph.D. in Chemical Technology from the same university where he also worked as a postdoctoral researcher. He is now working at the Department of Chemistry, International Hellenic University, Kavala, Greece, where he has been the head of the department since 2019. He is also the Director/Chair of the MSc in Cosmetic Chemistry. His research interests are the synthesis and characterization of various (majorly adsorbent) materials (inorganic, aluminates, polymers, graphenes, activated carbons, agro-food residues, nanomaterials, carbon nanotubes, etc.) for environmental applications (wastewaters treatment). Dr. Kyzas has published more than 220 scientific papers in international journals, 8 books, and 38 book chapters. He also holds three patents. He has been a guest editor for special journal issues and is the editor of Environmental Science and Pollution Research and is a reviewer for more than 200 other scientific journals. He has more than 120 announcements (invited) at international conferences. He was named in Stanford University’s list of the World’s Top 2% Scientists for 2019 and 2020. He has been awarded scholarships from the Research Committee of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2009, 2013), the Greek State Scholarship Foundation (2013), and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (2016). He has also participated in about twenty-five research projects.

The book presents a comprehensive overview of sorption, which is a multi-parametric separation process. It is extensively used in the removal of various pollutants from the tertiary stage of wastewater treatment, from leachates, etc. It discusses fundamental points of the technique as well as kinetic theories and isotherms. It also examines the synthesis and characterizations of all studied adsorbent materials to find their paths of sorption. Finally, it highlights the importance of having a cost-estimation plan for the synthesis of sorbent materials as well as predictions for their reusability.
