Pollution of soils is becoming a major problem in the world and especially, for most of the developed countries of the world. The crops cultivated in polluted soils may be containing a high level of heavy metals and/or toxic materials that can effect on human health. So, it is necessary to use the different technologies to clean up the polluted soil and creates additional lands for agricultural uses.
Nanotechnology offers a wide number of smarter and cheaper techniques can be used as alternative methods to immobilize contaminants such as; nanoremediation technology. The nanoremediation methods entail the nanomaterials application on polluted soil. Additionally, this method has the potential to reduce the high costs of soil remediation for large-scale and the time of cleanup. Also, may be reducing toxic materials concentration or heavy metals to near zero in situ. This review aims to of nanotechnology application on contaminated soil remediation.
Key Words: Heavy Metals, Environmental Pollution, Nanoparticles, Nanoremediation
