Other Approaches and the Commercialisation of Sustainable Carbonaceous Material Technology

To conclude the book, this chapter aims to provide the reader with an overview of a number of developing approaches to the production of porous carbons from sustainable precursors. Discussion will focus predominantly on the production of carbon-based materials from bacterial cellulose, lignins, tannins and finally to examine the possibility of employing ionic liquids. The relative merits of the approaches discussed will also be highlighted. The use of the resulting carbons synthesised based on these approaches in applications including energy storage, energy generation and purification/remediation will also be briefly discussed. Finally, the chapter will conclude with an overview of the latest developments regarding the commercialisation of the approaches to the synthesis of porous carbons from sustainable precursors discussed in this book will also be provided.
