Neha Sharma, Pradeep Bhatnagar, Sreemoyee Chatterjee, P.J. John, Inder Pal Soni


Waste water treatment issues have been a growing problems these days. It has become
stringently important to treat waste water prior its release into adjoining surface water bodies.
In recent past, bio nanotechnological solutions have proved to be of paramount importance in
circumventing the issues associated with dye bearing waste waters. Nanoparticles have a great
potential to be used in waste water treatment. Its unique characteristic of having high surface
area can be used efficiently for removing toxic metal ions, disease causing microbes, organic
and inorganic solutes from water. Various classes of nanomaterials have been efficiently
utilized for above cited facts including treatment of dye bearing waste water released from
textile industries like metal-containing nanoparticles, carbonaceous nanomaterials, zeolites
and dendrimers. The paper presents a comprehensive review of recent advances on different
nanomaterial based mitigation strategies. Special emphasis has been given to green synthesis
of nanoparticles aimed to address problems associated with textile effluents through nano
