Applications of Nanotechnology in Wastewater Treatments

Submission: August 09, 2021;Published: September 27, 2021


Recent innovations in nanotechnology have transformed a number of scientific and industrial areas including the wastewater treatment. Nanoparticles or nanomaterials are considered to be most significant and appropriate for the treatment and purification of waste as they are highly reactive, have high degree of functionalization, large surface area to volume ratio and have a good affinity for target substances and their extremely small size makes them most appropriate purification agents. Nanotechnology has led to various efficient ways of treating the wastewater in a more accurate and precise manner on both small and large scale. This article mainly reviews the recent advances of nanotechnology and its application in the field of wastewater treatment.
