Nano-Enabled Technologies for Water Remediation highlights several aspects of wastewater treatment using low-dimensional carbon-based materials. The book also focuses on advances in membrane-based separation, specifically on the pressure driven membrane process. In the case of membrane advances, the focus is exclusively on metal and metal oxide, mixed matrix membranes, GO, and CNT loaded membranes for targeted pollutant removal. Further, new and upcoming technologies of membrane preparation, via the electrospinning method, and advances in membrane distillation and wastewater remediation are discussed. In addition, the book includes coverage of recent advances occurring in sustainable technologies for wastewater remediation with bio-active nanomaterials, bio-inspired, and bio-templated nanomaterials which assist readers in gaining a new perspective for implementing nature-mimicked designs for water treatment and conservation.

Key Features

  • Covers fundamental theories for complex technologies so that the readers do not need to sift through large quantities of available literature
  • Provides information on major nano-enabled technologies for wastewater treatment, such as composite membranes, electrospun nanofibrous membranes, visible-light catalysts, multi-functional adsorbents, hydrogels, bio-active materials, bio-inspired materials, and more
  • Assesses the major challenges to integrating nanotechnology solutions to water remediation processes in a scalable and cost-efficient manner
