Due to increase in urbanization and industrialization, both water consumption and wastewater generation are high. It is a great challenge to treat and provide safe water to the society. The conventional treatment methods are energy and cost intensive. These limitations can be subsided by the application of nanotechnology that shows better efficiency in terms of treatment of wastewater. The use of nanoparticles increases the adsorption of dye and removal efficiency due to their smaller size and… Expand
