Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Organic pollutants are toxic chemicals that cause irreversible damages to the planet. Mostly human activities are responsible for their origin. Different types of environmental remediation processes are reported in the literature very well, but the 3D-printing techniques are of paramount importance and highly efficient way for organic pollutants’ removal. So, it's a highly recommended technique for remediation of wastewater and has received global attention due to high-resolution architectures. They exhibited 99.8% adsorption efficiency in short span of time for different organic pollutants and their mixtures. It is easy to regenerate 3D-printed adsorbents and reuse them for several times without loss in their efficiency. They exhibited several fold larger specific surface area and efficiency than conventional catalysts.
