Manufactured Nanoparticles in the Environment: Evaluation of Sources, Fate, Analyses and Treatability
Abstract:Nanotechnology is an emerging technology that has the potential to enhance a variety of industrial and commercial products and applications. Nanotechnology involves production and use of particles of 1–100 nanometer (nm) size scale. While products containing nanomaterials are rapidly introduced into the market, very little is currently known about their fate and transport in the environment. This paper provides an overview of potential sources, analytical issues, regulations and treatability of nanoscale materials in wastewater treatment facilities.
