Special Issue on Remediation Technologies for Clean and Green Environment

Environmental science comprises all of the external factors, conditions and influences that could affect the life, development and survival of living organisms. Environmental education, its challenges and management has made the educationalists and policy makers to even indulge those aspects in the regular curriculum of all researchers irrespective of their course selection. Environmental remediation deals with the removal of pollutants and contaminants for the general protection of human health and environment. Environmental challenges knows no international boundaries and therefore, the impacts can have global manifestations as what we are experiencing today in the form of drastic changes in the climate, melting of polar ice caps, detrimental decline in the biodiversity etc. this universal ever-increasing phenomenon of environmental degradation has raised a number of questions involving the very existence and integrity of the various ecosystems. In this context, the special issue on “Remediation Technologies for Clean and Green Environment” has brought together a galaxy of environmental specialists and budding scientists from various disciplines with a view to present, discuss and exchange their scientific thoughts to innovate and devise new strategies for environmentally sound and sustainable development of the society. We hope that this special issue would be a resource material for all the researchers and scientists who are engaged in environmental research. High quality research and review papers dealing with remediation technologies for the development of clean and green environment are encouraged.

Special Issue on RENEWABLE ENERGY

Mankind is using up energy resources of mother earth in a way no other animal has ever done. The largest contributions to current energy sources in the world come from oil (31%), coal (26%) and natural gas (19%). At the present rate of consumption, oil reserves will last for 40 years, gas reserves will last for 60 years, coal reserves will last for 125 years and uranium reserves will last for 1000 years. India has 17% of the world’s population, but only about 0.8% of the world’s known oil and natural gas sources. Based on the progress visualized for the nation during the next two decades, the power generating capacity has to increase to 4, 00, 000 MW by the year 2030 from the current 1,47, 000 MW in India. This takes into consideration of energy economics planned and the design and production of energy efficient equipments and systems. New and emerging technologies like hydrogen energy, fuel cells, biofuels, electric & hybrid electric vehicles, geo-thermal energy and tidal energy hold major promise for mitigating the energy crisis in the country, especially for power generation and transportation as such to achieve energy independence. These are renewable and do not get depleted with use like fossil fuels. Innovation in technology, development and applications has to drive the renewable energy (Green Power) marketplace. Over 1.64 billion people world across lack access to electricity. For those people, who cannot be provided with electricity by extending the grid their hope rests in innovation and as such the emerging technologies. Presently installed generation capacity of renewable energy is 13,730 MW from various sources which is approximately 8% of total installed capacity in the country and contributing to around 3% of total national electricity generation. The stupendous growth stimulates enhanced energy requirements.
