Nanotechnology holds great promise in ensuring safe drinking water through designing innovative centralised and decentralised (household-level) water treatment systems. Today nanoparticles, nanomembrane and nanopowder used for detection and removal of chemical and biological substances include Silver Nanoparticles Drinking Water Purification. Water Treatment By Nanoparticles Treating water with the help of nanoparticles is a huge topic in nanotechnology. However, their influences on wastewater biological nutrient removal (BNR) and nitrous oxide (N2O) generation in the activated sludge process have never been documented. The use of magnetic nanoparticles (magnetite Fe 3 O 4) for separation of water pollutants has already been established in ground water remediation, in particular for the removal of arsenic. The paper provides an overview of recent advances in nanotechnologies for (household level) water treatment processes, such as its use as nanoadsorbents, photocatalysts, microbial disinfectants and in membranes. Understanding ENPs occurrence and behavior in aquatic environments is also required to assess the associated environmental impact. The ever-increasing daily use of engineered nanoparticles will lead to heightened levels of these materials in the environment. Due to the exceptional characteristics which resulted from nanoscale size, such as improved catalysis and adsorption properties as well as high reactivity, nanomaterials have been the subject of active research and development worldwide in recent years.
