Applications of Nanotechnology in Water and Wastewater Treatment

Applications of Nanotechnology in Water and Wastewater Treatment

In this module you will learn about the applications of nanotechnology in water and wastewater treatment.

Nowadays, the importance of personal and general health is increasingly growing. Since water plays an essential role in human life, its sanitization for different applications such as drinking, washing, agriculture and industry is of prime significance. The usage of nanostructures and nano-devices is shown to make traditional water purification methods more efficient. Also, the nanotechnology has opened its way into different aspects of water and wastewater treatment, from contaminant sensing to cleaning, purification and water-related structures. In fact, the nanotechnology provides the materials with special properties which pave the way for fast-growing development of new-emerging methods for water treatment.
