Selected Nanotechnology Applications in Industrial Waste Water Treatment: A Review

Writer(s): Ahmed Hasham 1,

Nanotechnology is considered the future of the world in most physics and chemical solutions that cannot be applied in many scale level. This review aimed to highlight the different uses of nanotechnology in industrial waste water treatment system because it is very important issue to protect the environment from the different liquid industrial pollutants. Nanoparticles is defined by some as nanomaterials, and these materials has unusual properties not present in ordinary materials. Nano, typically employed as a prefix, is defined as one billionth of a quantity or term that is represented mathematically 10 9-. Generally, refers to the processes that produces and use matter at the nanometre level. From the review Nano-technology can be used to minimize the cost, accelerate the process and improve the efficiency of industrial waste water treatment. Nanoparticles found to be one of the best solution in the field of industrial waste water treatment.
