Applications of nanotechnology in air pollution and remediation
K A Swathi
Latest innovations in nanotechnology have transformed a number of scientific and industrial areas including the environmental remedies. The issue of environmental pollution has become a hot issue in today's world. Environmental pollution, mainly caused by toxic chemicals, includes air, water, and soil pollution. This pollution results not only in the destruction of biodiversity, but also the degradation of human health. Pollution levels that are increasing day by day need better developments or technological discoveries immediately. Nanotechnology offers many advantages to improve existing environmental technologies and create new technology that is better than current technology. In this sense, nanotechnology has three main capabilities that can be applied in the fields of environment, including the cleanup (remediation) and purification, the detection of contaminants (sensing and detection), and the pollution prevention. The present paper is described for air pollution and remedies on nanotechnology applications.
