Nanomaterials for Wastewater Treatment: Concluding


Nanotechnology has the potential to substantially improve current water and wastewater treatment processes. The synthesis methods and physiochemical properties of nanomaterials and noble metal nanoparticles, make their performance and mechanisms efficient for the treatment of various pollutants. These are presented in this book.

The processing of nanomaterials are subject to technical bottlenecks such as aggregation, difficult separation, leakage into the contact water, as well as potential adverse effects for ecosystem and human health. This book covers the fundamentals of nanomaterials, photocatalytic nanocomposite materials, nanomaterials used as a adsorbents and water remediation processes, their current status and challenges for mass production.

Handbook of Nanomaterials for Wastewater Treatment: Fundamentals and Scale up Issues provides coverage of the nanomaterials used for wastewater treatment. It explores the major applications of nanomaterials for effective catalysis and adsorption. The book also provides in depth information about the properties and application of  new advanced nanomaterials for wastewater treatment processes. This is an important reference source for researchers, aimed at solve some basic and advanced problems related to the use of nanomaterials for the development of wastewater treatment processes and technologies.
