The main goal of Agri-Waste and Microbes for Production of Green Nanomaterials is to assess the most recent trends to produce bionanomaterials from agricultural waste and microorganisms. The book covers the green synthesis of various nanomaterials using microorganisms and agricultural waste. The book has been divided into two parts: Part I deals with the synthesis and characterization of green nanomaterials. Part II is focused on the production of nanomaterials from agri-waste including metallic, copper, silica, cellulose, nanopolymers and nano/micro plastics. Part III reviews appropriate biological methods such as agricultural and microbial synthesis of metallic/ metal oxide, magnetic, silver, copper, nanomaterials and nanonutrients. The synthesis of nanocellulose materials from agri-wastes is an emerging alternative for waste treatment methods, developing new biosensors, and antimicrobial agents. Silicon nanoparticles are an additional ingredient for the improvement of crop yields. With recent advances in nanomaterials synthesis performance and discovering their biomedical, environmental and agricultural applications, it is hoped that the implementation of these methods will be used at a large scale and their industrial applications in different sectors. The use of agro-waste and microbes not only minimizes the charge of nanomaterials production but also decreases the application of traditional agrichemicals, encourages 'green synthesis' and a strong step towards agricultural sustainable development. This is an important reference source for plant scientists, materials scientists and environmental scientists who wanto to understand how agri-waste can be used to produce a new generation of sustainable anomaterials. Highlights recent methods to produce bionanomaterials from agricultural waste and microorganisms Explores the major applications of agri-waste in the environmental and agricultural sectors Assesses the major challenges for using agri-waste to create eco-friendly nanomaterials on a large scale
