About the book

Over the past 30 years, the increased social sense of responsibility for environmental issues has paved the way for the development of new sustainable technologies. At the same time, the great challenge of being able to preserve the quality of the environment has become a mandatory guideline in many fields. Carbon-based materials play an important role, due to their tunability and a wide spread of applications in the field of environmental remediation. In this book, we offer an overview of the cutting-edge processes for pollution control and waste management based on the use of carbon-containing materials, such as, but not limited to, electrochemical devices, absorption and landscape processes.

About the editor

Mattia Bartoli

Polytechnic of Turin

In 2007 I started my career as laboratory technician at \'Laboratorio di studi ambientali\' (Pistoia, IT). In 2013 I received a MsC in Chemical Science with honors at University of Florence. In 2017 I received a PhD Chemical Science from University of Florence. My activities had focused on two main fields: i) Microwave assisted pyrolysis, ii) Heterogeneous catalysis based on bio-nanostructured materials. During 2017-2018 i was employed as Postdoc research fellow at University of Alberta. I worked on the pyrolysis of wasted fats, on the incorporation of biosolids in the LTH technology and in the catalytic conversion of its side products. Actually i am employed as research assistant at Polytechnic University of Turin where i am working on biochar and composite materials.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Edi Lipovic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
