APPLICATION OF ELECTROCHEMICAL AND NANOMATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE TREATMENT OF INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER: AN OVERVIEW
Environmental engineering, environmental protection and chemical process engineering are today in the avenues of newer scientific revelation and deep scientific regeneration. Industrial wastewater treatment and water purification stands in the midst of vast scientific introspection and scientific comprehension. Both conventional and non-conventional environmental engineering techniques are today the needs of the hour. Non-conventional environmental engineering techniques involve electrochemical treatments and advanced oxidation processes. This treatise investigates the scientific vision in the application of electrochemical technologies for the treatment of industrial wastewater. The authors in the article portray profoundly the immediate need and the immediate concerns of electrochemical treatments of industrial wastewater. Recent advances in the field of industrial wastewater treatment are also delineated in minute details. Application of nanotechnology, nanomaterials and engineered nanomaterials in environmental protection and water remediation are the other cornerstones of this treatise.
