Materials (Basel) 11(7):PMC6073422(2018)

In this review, a critical analysis of nanotechnologies for water remediation assesses their sustainability in terms of efficient removal of pollutants, appropriate methods for monitoring their effectiveness, and protocols for evaluation of potential environmental risks. The intent is to furnish guidelines for sustainable water management. New nanostructured polysaccharide-based materials obtained from renewable resources are presented as alternative efficient and ecosafe solutions for water treatment along with eco-design indications to improve the sustainability of nanomaterials production based on life-cycle assessment methodology. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6073422/
