Environmental pollution from organic and inorganic pollutants poses a threat to the ecosystem. Pollutant's prevalence and persistence have increased significantly in recent years. In order to enhance the quality of naturally accessible water to a level suitable for human consumption, a number of techniques have been employed. In this context, the use of cutting-edge nanotechnology to classical process engineering paves the way for technical encroachments in advanced water and wastewater technology. Nanotechnology has the potential to ameliorate the quality, availability, and viability of water supplies in the long run by facilitating reuse, recycling and remediation of water. The promising role of nanotechnology in wastewater remediation is highlighted in this paper, which also covers current advancements in nanotechnology-mediated remediation systems. Moreover, nano-based materials such as nano-adsorbents, photocatalysts, nano-metals and nanomembranes are discussed in this review of recent breakthroughs in nanotechnologies for water contaminant remediation. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd
