Magnetic nanoparticles are used as the core material in a coreeshell nanoparticle structure where the shell provides the desired function while the magnetic core realizes magnetic separation. Water, whose physical, chemical, or biological properties have been altered due to the addition of contaminants such as organic/inorganic materials, pathogens, heavy metals or other toxins making it unsafe for the ecosystem, can be termed as wastewater. Numerous studies have shown that nanomaterials can effectively remove various pollutants in water and thus have been successfully applied in water and wastewater treatment.

Tyagi1 2Ravikant Singh , Smriti Vats1, Dharmendra Kumar3 and Shruti Tyagi1 W Understanding ENPs occurrence and behavior in aquatic environments is also required to assess the associated environmental impact. Nanoparticles on a membrane In the area of water purification, nanotechnology offers the possibility of an efficient removal of pollutants and germs. Water on Earth is a precious and finite resource, which is endlessly recycled in the water cycle. The increase in use of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) ends up in waste streams, and consequently to the environment and drinking water resources. These nanomaterials will eventually go into the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), therefore, resulting into a pressing need for information on their aggregation behavior and kinetics in the wastewater aqueous matrix. h�bbd```b``���A$S��� Potential advances in nanotechnology must go hand in hand with environmental health to alleviate any undesirable consequences to humans. h�b``�f``ne`c`��A��X��,-�;00�e� � 3934water research 47 (2013) 39313946e 2.1.3. :C�V��j9�W�/�ɏ��5W��Pɔa�t�m�1�e����DS>�j�����V��c��cG:]��#dtmF����s�gu�s����Ç�/��≌60��mF��t�/]ڇý���ý��~z6��կbV�bVM����'%�iG�E3�]I dx�1��"�K���-C�}#�v�n���!�́�����@;��V�M�U�hL���@�3L-gI��z�H i=d��s��(��> 0�*��i%��s�O�C���h��c�kڠ�����/I_X���]����I�D�0����`g0�M��z���\�㎖���^��@D[��i��R��-F$��0R��K�X��p ~{ Cܣʮx-ވ}q(�ĉ8E!.ŕ(ŵ�=�wb ��^��XLă�]|�fr��J�uS�5��2�a�Z�|�����hزC*����ݻ�/�_$h~�;�_mj�B��k[+�ƨ�T/�|���db{��;���˱O:�]Q�H%["[b�B�p5�w�Y*�mʚi]��O����c� ����\�736�U-��d��͐hZrBa�Z�{O��4�Lr�-iw@�r�5 ��P�t�f�}6�v��ɯ��OT5q�����!����+i�/G@"�"�_^W�p��������m9 dox%��b|+�(GCwr��PLnG%���a$�{�J1�}����d\�����,�侊����B| ��:*.-'LHUO���T�oX��-~m�oS���\�!��������k���/�p��+ However, their influences on wastewater biological nutrient removal (BNR) and nitrous oxide (N2O) generation in the activated sludge process have never been documented. endstream endobj startxref A review of water treatment membrane nanotechnologies, Energy and Environmental Science,4(6), 1946-1971 (2011) Bae T.H.
