Abstract

This chapter summarizes nanomaterials for green industry, agriculture, food industry, environmental protection, renewable energy, and health care. Nanomaterials can help resource saving, energize batteries, and reduce energy consumption by using lightweight, high-strength materials based on carbon nanotubes and metal oxide frameworks as hydrogen storage materials. Nanomaterials can be fabricated with specific properties that can detect a particular pollutant within a mixture. Nanomaterials also can be engineered to actively interact with a pollutant and decompose it to less toxic intermediates. Nanomaterials, with tailored characteristics of small size, very high surface-to-volume ratio, tolerance of structure change, and strain relaxation can play an important role in the development of renewable energy production and storage. Nanomaterials have been showing great potentials in biotechnology and health, with the important impact on the quality of health in a sustainable society.
