Nanoremediation: Modern Technologies for Treatment of Environmental Pollutants is a comprehensive reference that highlights established nano-remediation practices, discusses their rapidly emerging applications in industry, and points out future research directions. The book provides researchers and scientists in academia and industry with a high-tech start-up that will revolutionize modern remediation practices. It condenses all relevant information on nano-remediation and provides an amalgamation of the latest trends in the field. In addition, the book handles the design and modeling of nano-remediation processes and the trends and challenges that nano-remediation is facing in various sectors. Special attention is given to approaches that lead to green and sustainable industrial developments, as well as to the legal, economical and toxicity aspects of nano-remediation.

Key Features

  • Presents the latest knowledge on origin, identification and utilization of nanotechnology in bioremediation techniques
  • Details all processes discovered so far for nano-remediation as modern technology for environmental pollutants
  • Explores nanotechnology as a green solution for the treatment of environmental pollutants


Advanced undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and scientists in chemical engineering involved in environmental remediation, scientists and researchers working in (chemical) industry on commercial scale exploration of remediation
