Abstract:

Heavy metals along with diverse chemicals, released from different anthropogenic sources are alarmingly contaminating drinking water which has become a global concern. Quality of drinking water in Pakistan is overlooked, poorly monitored and managed both surface and groundwater drinking water sources are being contaminated. This drinking water being polluted is relatively a new problem directly related to unprecedented growth in population, urbanization, and industrialization in recent years as a result stress is arising. Human health and environment face major consequences due to this contamination of water resources. To combat these problems and to meet the basic human right of safe drinking water, novel water treatment technologies are emerging. Developing sustainable methods for water treatment is a major concern. Nanotechnology is one of its kind in this perspective. This technology has immense potential to restore polluted water efficiently and effectively. The present study’s aim was to determine the potential of Green synthesized iron oxide nanoparticles for the removal of heavy metals from wastewater
