Advanced materials for removal of refractory pollutants from environment

Industrial revolution and urbanization have resulted in generation of large volumes of effluents that are often contaminated with hazardous refractory pollutants such as dyes, heavy metals, biological wastes, pesticides, radioactive elements and others. More focus on studies to provide scientific insight into the chemistry of water has led to the development of advanced wastewater and water purification technologies. However, the quality of freshwater resources has continually deteriorated worldwide. Although conventional wastewater technologies are focused on the removal of suspended solids, nutrients and bacteria, several refractory pollutants are very diffuct to be removed and pose a serious threat to the environment and health. These environmental contaminants are recalcitrant for conventional wastewater treatment processes and most of them remain unaffected, leading to the contamination of ground water. This scenario leads to the need for an advanced wastewater treatment process that can remove environmental contaminants to ensure safe and clean drinking and irrigational water sources.

This special issue will focus on novel strategies and innovative processes for removal of trace organic contaminants and micro-organisms. It will cover nanotechnology driven solutions in association with membrane bioreactors, moving bed bioreactors, light and solar technology, ozonation and immobilized heterogeneous photocatalysis to ensure ensure wastewater recycling for reuse. Biogenic nanoparticles, nanobiosorbents, biochar, and nanofiltration will be covered as to highlight the latest developments in the field of drinking water reuse. This special issue will be immensely important for addressing various nanotechnological progress for public health protection, reliability and monitoring.
