Nanotechnology plays a pivotal role in improving the environment and making alternative energy sources more cost effective. The role of nanotechnology includes cleaning up pollutants by bioremediation, generating low-producing green house gas combustion and energy systems, producing eco-friendly nanomaterials and sustainable energy sources. This volume emphasises on recent research progresses on nanotechnology based energy systems and pros and cons of various nanomaterials used as building blocks for efficient energy production units, and their adaptability in the environment. In this volume authors have discussed vividly and eloquently about the use of nanomaterials like graphene, graphane, carbon, silver, aluminium, manganese oxide as carriers and storage materials for hydrogen energy and their role in development of different solar cells and batteries cost effectively. They also discussed about different next generation technologies like microelectrical mechanical systems (MEMS), ground state heat pump(GHST) technology, production of complex hydrides based nanomaterials by radiation induced methods and aluminium based lithium batteries as a power source for emission free vehicles. The forte of this volume is its widespread research on the toxicological aspect of the nanomaterial and its impact on environment and health. The authors described different kinds of nanomaterials and their failure because of its adverse effects on environment due to toxicity, corrosion and low sustainability. Thus authors have identified alternate ecofriendly materials like silver, gold, palladium, platinum to be used in toxicity determination, ground water and soil bioremediation and also in mitigation of environment pollution.
