National program boosts Swedish research on smart materials for water and air purification

Three years into the program, Swedish scientists will present interesting findings at the ACS National Meeting & Expo in Philadelphia, PA on March 22 – 26, 2020. In a transdisciplinary research program – Mistra TerraClean – partners across academia, research institutes and industry come together in developing smart, safe and sustainable material systems for managing air and water quality in industrial and municipal operations. Material candidates are derived from functionalization and hybridization of lignocellulose, activated carbons derived from biomass, amorphous carbonates and/or zeolitic structures. In addition to technical performance, material systems are also assessed with respect to life cycle analyses and toxicological appraisal of material production, application in case studies, post-consumer fate, and management. The five day conference attracts 20 000 participants from all over the world.
