In order to overcome the current energy and environment crisis caused by fossil fuels depletion and greenhouse gas emission, it is indispensable to introduce new, eco-friendly, high-performance materials into energy conversion and storage applications. 2D transition metal oxides (TMOs) are regarded as the promising candidates due to their excellent electrochemical properties. However, their innate poor electronic conductivity greatly restricts their applications in energy conversion and storage. This review discusses and summarizes the developed strategies to overcome the limitation through surface modification including defect engineering, heteroatom incorporation and interlayer doping, as well as hybridization with conductive materials. In addition, a detailed summary of their synthesis and applications in supercapacitors, lithium ion batteries and electrocatalysis is included. Finally, future prospective such as opportunities and challenges is discussed for the successful implementation of 2D TMOs in the field of energy applications.

Highly efficient, low-cost electrocatalysts having superior activity and stability are crucial for practical electrochemical water splitting, which involves hydrogen and oxygen evolution reactions (HER and OER). The sustainable production of hydrogen fuel from electrochemical water splitting requires the development of a highly efficient and stable electrocatalyst with low overpotential that drives electrochemical redox reactions. Electrochemical water splitting using highly active nickel-iron layered double hydroxide (NiFe LDH) catalyst having a very high turnover frequency and mass activity is considered as a potential contender in the area of electrocatalysis owing to the practical challenges including high efficiency and long durability at low overpotential, which shows great potential in future hydrogen economy. This review includes certain recommendations on enhancing the electrocatalytic performance of NiFe LDH-based electrocatalyst, particularly through morphology engineering, construction of hierarchical/core-shell nanostructures, and doping of heteroatoms through combined experimental assessment and theoretical investigations, which in turn improve the electrocatalytic performance. Finally, emphasis is made on the bifunctional activity of the NiFe LDH catalyst for overall water splitting. At the end, the conclusions and future outlook for the design of the NiFe LDH catalyst towards scale-up for their use as electrolyzer at the industrial level are also discussed.

Aqueous film-forming foam, used in firefighting, and biowastes, including biosolids, animal and poultry manures, and composts, provide a major source of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) input to soil. Large amounts of biowastes are added to soil as a source of nutrients and carbon. They also are added as soil amendments to improve soil health and crop productivity. Plant uptake of PFAS through soil application of biowastes is a pathway for animal and human exposure to PFAS. The complexity of PFAS mixtures, and their chemical and thermal stability, make remediation of PFAS in both solid and aqueous matrices challenging. Remediation of PFAS in biowastes, as well as soils treated with these biowastes, can be achieved through preventing and decreasing the concentration of PFAS in biowaste sources (i.e., prevention through source control), mobilization of PFAS in contaminated soil and subsequent removal through leaching (i.e., soil washing) and plant uptake (i.e., phytoremediation), sorption of PFAS, thereby decreasing their mobility and bioavailability (i.e., immobilization), and complete removal through thermal and chemical oxidation (i.e., destruction). In this review, the distribution, bioavailability, and remediation of PFAS in soil receiving solid biowastes, which include biosolids, composts, and manure, are presented.

Around 29% of the world population does not have ready access to safe drinking water. Water contamination is a compelling issue, which needs to be addressed on a priority basis using novel technologies. Heavy metals are the dominant inorganic contaminants found in the water, whereas, organic contaminants are composed of several classes and pose a more widespread problem. The occurrence of radionuclides, such as uranium and caesium in groundwater is also raising a serious issue but it is often understudied. Nanoporous carbons are a good choice for removing water contaminants owing to their excellent physico-chemical properties. Their surface properties, which are highly critical for adsorption, vary significantly with the nature of the precursors used for synthesis. Their textural and surface characteristics can be tuned by adjusting the chemical composition of these precursors or the synthesis conditions, including activation or modification. Such materials can also be supported in a porous matrix, designed into desired morphologies and hybridized with other composite materials for enhancing the application efficiency. The review describes how the low-cost nanoporous carbons are outstanding adsorbent for the water remediation and provide an outlook to tap the unlimited opportunities by researching their new properties.

Slags are a co-product produced by the steel manufacturing industry and have mainly been utilised for aggregates in concreting and road construction. The increased utilisation of slag can increase economic growth and sustainability for future generations by creating a closed-loop system, circular economy within the metallurgical industries. Slags can be used as a soil amendment, and slag characteristics may reduce leachate potential of heavy metals, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as well as contain essential nutrients required for agricultural use and environmental remediation. This review aims to examine various slag generation processes in steel plants, their physicochemical characteristics in relation to beneficial utilisation as a soil amendment, and environmental implications and risk assessment of their utilisation in agricultural soils. In relation to enhancing recycling of these resources, current and emerging techniques to separate iron and phosphorus slag compositions are also outlined in this review. Although there are no known immediate direct threats posed by slag on human health, the associated risks include potential heavy metal contamination, leachate contamination, and bioaccumulation of heavy metals in plants, thereby reaching the food chain. Further research in this area is required to assess the long-term effects of slag in agricultural soils on animal and human health.
