In many developed nations, nanotechnology is being advertised as a technical revolution that will definitely help you in solving a wide array of issues. It promises to offer new ways of solving some of these developing nations’ chronic challenges like treating tuberculosis and malaria, conserving food and diversifying energy sources and also several other applications.
There are many nanomaterials now universally manufactured for those of structural applications, skin care products, biotechnology and many more. Nanotechnology offers several promising solutions for improving ‘point of use’ water treatment – becoming more efficient and effective about removing all the contaminants in water for making it safe to drink.
There are several nanotechnologies for water treatment – nano-filters with membrane to filter out contaminants, nanosensors for detecting contaminants in the water and also nanomaterials to help with water pollution remediation and also the desalination.
Moreover, chemical or mechanical methods are something that has been widely used for effective groundwater filtration techniques but the recent technique is nanofiltration, which is indeed recent membrance filtration process used quite often with low total dissolved solids water like surface water and fresh ground water.
With use of nanoscale particles improve the efficiency for absorbing the contaminants and is comparatively inexpensive comparing to traditional precipitation and filtration methods since the nano-enabled technologies include a variety of different kinds of membranes and filters.
