Environmental clean-up for the removal of recalcitrant pollutants is a global concern, especially in the terms of industrial waste. Research over the years has led to the development of various conventional physicochemical and biological methods for the decontamination of numerous pollutants. These methods however are reported to be extremely expensive and with limited success. Nano-remediation has been reported as an effective alternative in this regard. The chapter outlines the use of various nanoparticles as an innovative and cutting-edge technology for the clean-up of environmental pollutants. It describes the use of fabricated nanoparticles to remove pollutants. The chapter offers an overview of current research developments in the emerging field of nano-remediation with special emphasis on textile dyes, elucidating the mechanisms involved.
