Perovskites possess an interesting crystal structure and its structural properties allow us to achieve various applications. Beside its ferroelectric, piezoelectric, magnetic, multiferroic, etc., properties, these branches of materials are also useful to develop materials for various environmental applications. As the population is increasing nowadays, different type of environmental pollution is one of the growing worries for society. The effort of researchers and scientists focuses on developing new materials to get rid of these individual issues. With modern advances in synthesis methods, including the preparation of perovskite nanocomposites, there is a growing interest in perovskite-type materials for environmental application. Basically, this chapter concludes with a few of the major issues in the recent environment: green energy (solar cell), fuel cell, sensors (gas and for biomedical), and remediation of heavy metals from industrial wastewater.
