The importance and need for this special issue:
Currently, nanotechnology is in the stage to cross from lab-scale and pilot scale studies. Various engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) with different characteristics (e.g., composition, shape, morphology, crystallinity, surface area, etc.) have been developed all over the world and have been applied for the treatment of water and wastewater polluted by various environmental contaminants. Efficient removal and/or degradation of emerging environmental pollutants by nanomaterials has opened a window towards the effective recycling and reuse of the water resources which has been polluted with such persistent environmental pollutants. Attractive illustration of this technology to deal with such problems, especially when most of the biological treatment methods fail to perform well, encourages to overcome the existing barrier for its rapid commercialization. This would be the next step requiring efforts to assess its sustainability for long term safe applications. In this regard, various aspects of sustainability have to be considered in order to have a clear perspective for nanotechnology in the near future. Treatment efficiency and related issues, toxicity and ecotoxicity of the materials as well as economic considerations are among the most important challenges in this regard which have to be addressed extensively to speed-up the development of this technology for future sustainable water supply.
