Poster sessions at virtually all wastewater conferences these days include papers on breakthroughs in wastewater remediation based on applications of nanotechnology.

The environmental benefits offered by this new technology have inspired considerable enthusiasm.Nanotechnology broadly refers to the use of materials and structures with dimensions of less than 100 nm. While nanotechnology is about size, it also is about how things are put together, arranged and assembled. When certain materials are smaller than 100 nm, they take on unique properties. For example, materials that previously did not conduct electricity may now do so.
