This paper addresses Nanotechnology can deal with environmental application such as
contaminated water and air treatment, self cleaning materials, energy applications, novel
functionalized adsorbents for environmental, industrial applications and nonmaterial‟s for sustainable
energy production. Nanotechnology can add significant improvement by providing their role in
monitoring, pollution prevention and remediation methods. This paper aims at determining wellresearched
ways in which this new technology can benefit the environment through an extensive
literature review. Outcome of the review show that nanotechnology, when used properly, has
tremendous potential benefits to the environment in many ways. As an illustration on the
environmental front, nanotechnology is found nonmaterial use for soil and ground water remediation
with help of nano particles. Environmental applications of nano technology address the development
of solutions to the existing environmental problems, preventive measures for future problems resulting
from the interactions of energy and materials with the environment, and any possible risks that may be
posed by nanotechnology itself.
