Advances in environmental materials are described especially concerning about utilization of natural source and their waste, for example biomass and their re-uses. They strongly support development to sustainable society. So, these classify and demonstrate environmental technologies, which strongly contribute to overcome pollution environment for the purpose of sustainable society. In view point of green chemistry and the related technologies to representative biomasses and inorganic wastes are applying for advanced functional materials. Since biomass and inorganic wastes are very interesting candidates for regenerated materials, it is very meaningful to understand and attention to environmentally and friendly materials and technologies. This is because that an increasing environmental concerns to sustainability.
Chapter Preview


As already mentioned, people should recognize a limit of the growth of the global environment. The coexistence of global environmental conservation and the industrial activation becomes extremely important. This is because that, as one of example, the danger signals such as the frequent abnormal weather strongly suggest an importance in sustainable society. From such a background, the practice of the concept called “green” becomes required in a chemical technique and materials development for the sustainable society. In the minimum waste and the recycling, people should bring highly efficient environmental symbiosis in energy technology, reuse of the biomass waste and the switch to a re-used material and to the remediation technology, which is applied to the earth pollution for the conservation of our environment. Therefore, the substantial use is urgent in this century. In this chapter, an action to the sustainable society and green chemistry is introduced in the points of view of the green technology using about biomass and waste re-utilization for environment materials.
