Abstract: Nanotechnology enabled methods for the treatment of wastewater; drinking water and contaminated groundwater offer potential benefits but also carry significant risks. There are in addition technical, financial and regulatory barriers to innovation within the water sector itself. Progress in addressing the major technical challenges has been achieved through original applications and fresh research directions. These efforts are leading to increased efficiencies in photocatalytic water treatment, membrane filtration for drinking water purification and desalination, and in-situ remediation with nano zerovalent iron. Expected impacts of nanomaterials in water treatment include reduction of waterborne diseases, together with alleviation of water scarcity and water stress.
