Global deterioration of water, soil, and atmosphere by the release of toxic chemicals from the ongoing anthropogenic activities is becoming a serious problem throughout the world. This poses numerous issues relevant to ecosystem and human health that intensify the application challenges of conventional treatment technologies. Therefore, this review sheds the light on the recent progresses in nanotechnology and its vital role to encompass the imperative demand to monitor and treat the emerging hazardous wastes with lower cost, less energy, as well as higher efficiency. Essentially, the key aspects of this account are to briefly outline the advantages of nanotechnology over conventional treatment technologies and to relevantly highlight the treatment applications of some nanomaterials e. The ongoing propagation of industrialization and urbanization processes involving transportation, manufacturing, construction, petroleum refining, mining, etc. The generated wastes are released to the environment in different forms, for example atmospheric pollutants include toxic gases nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, carbon oxides, ozone, etc. These environmental pollutants have a great potential to adversely influence the human health Fereidoun et al.
The impact of nanotechnology extends from its medical , ethical , mental , legal and environmental applications, to fields such as engineering, biology, chemistry, computing, materials science, and communications. Major benefits of nanotechnology include improved manufacturing methods, water purification systems, energy systems, physical enhancement , nanomedicine , better food production methods, nutrition and large-scale infrastructure auto-fabrication. Potential risks include environmental, health, and safety issues; transitional effects such as displacement of traditional industries as the products of nanotechnology become dominant, which are of concern to privacy rights advocates. These may be particularly important if potential negative effects of nanoparticles are overlooked. Whether nanotechnology merits special government regulation is a controversial issue. Regulatory bodies such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Health and Consumer Protection Directorate of the European Commission have started dealing with the potential risks of nanoparticles. The organic food sector has been the first to act with the regulated exclusion of engineered nanoparticles from certified organic produce, firstly in Australia and the UK ,  and more recently in Canada , as well as for all food certified to Demeter International standards .

In recent years, researchers used many scientific studies to improve modern technologies in the field of reducing the phenomenon of pollution resulting from them. In this chapter, methods to prepare nanomaterials are described, and the main properties such as mechanical, electrical, and optical properties and their relations are determined. The investigation of nanomaterials needed high technologies that depend on a range of nanomaterials from 1 to nm; these are scanning electron microscopy SEM , transmission electron microscopy TEM , and X-ray diffractions XRD. The applications of nanomaterials in environmental improvement are different from one another depending on the type of devices used, for example, solar cells for producing clean energy, nanotechnologies in coatings for building exterior surfaces, and sonochemical decolorization of dyes by the effect of nanocomposite. Nanotechnology and the Environment. The term nanotechnology is the creation of functional material devices and systems through the control of matter in the range of 1— nm and the ability to work at the molecular level, atom by atom to create large structures with fundamentally new molecular organization. Nanotechnology is the design, fabrication, and application of nanostructures or nanomaterials and the fundamental understanding of the relationships between physical properties, or phenomena, and material dimensions.

Nanotechnology has become increasingly a reality nowadays, and along with it there is a need for discussions related to potential advances, as well as the impacts on the environment and human health that technology can cause Purohit et al. Nanomaterials applications and also implications on the environment have been studied by several groups around the world, and particularly in Brazil, where nanotechnology has been increasingly applied on agriculture and their impacts are still unknown. In this context, the II Workshop in Environmental Nanotechnology was an interdisciplinary forum of discussions about the aspects of this new technology, as well as, its innovation in the environmental area, contributing to the education of undergraduate and graduate students and also as an interchange and exchange of experiences among the invited speakers, professors, researchers and students of several post-graduation programs, contributing to the generation and spreading of knowledge in the environmental nanotechnology area. The aim of IIWEnNan special issue was to compile discussions regarding the aspects related to the environmental applications of Nanotechnology presented during the II Workshop in Environmental Nanotechnology, as well as the methods and techniques to the study of nanoparticles in the environment.

Глаза ее не отрывались от экрана. Мозг лихорадочно искал какое-то другое объяснение, но не находил. Перед ее глазами было внезапно появившееся доказательство: Танкадо использовал меняющуюся последовательность для создания функции меняющегося открытого текста, а Хейл вступил с ним в сговор с целью свалить Агентство национальной безопасности.
Спасибо, мисс Флетчер. - Он подал едва заметный знак, и ворота распахнулись. Проехав еще полмили, Сьюзан подверглась той же процедуре перед столь же внушительной оградой, по которой был пропущен электрический ток. Давайте же, ребята… уже миллион раз вы меня проверяли.
Сьюзан безучастно смотрела, как он направился в шифровалку. Это был уже не тот раздавленный отчаянием человек, каким она видела его десять минут. Коммандер Тревор Стратмор снова стал самим собой - человеком железной логики и самообладания, делающим то, что полагалось делать. Последние слова предсмертной записки Хейла крутились у нее в голове, не повинуясь никаким приказам. И в первую очередь я искренне сожалею о Дэвиде Беккере.
Стратмор просиял и, протянув руку, коснулся ее плеча. - Спасибо. - Он улыбнулся и сразу перешел к делу. - Мы вместе спустимся. - Он поднял беретту. - Ты найдешь терминал Хейла, а я тебя прикрою.
