Application of nanotechnology in wastewater treatment

Emir Zekić, Živko Vuković, Ivan Halkijević

Abstract

Conventional wastewater treatment methods include various physical, chemical and biological processes. The results of such treatment can be limited because of high investment cost or, in some cases, due to poor treatment efficiency. For that reason, new approaches are continuously being developed as a means of supplementing or replacing traditional water treatment methods. The paper provides an overview of development of nanotechnology over time in the sphere of wastewater treatment, and examines the influence of nanomaterials on human health and environment, while also providing a review of future development trends in nanotechnology.

Keywords
