Biomass Driven Nanocellulose: Latest Breakthrough in the Sustainable Adsorbent Materials Family for Confiscation of Water Toxicants

Komal and Sumit Taneja

Abstract

Owing to the copious existence of biomass in the environment, the present review is aimed at compiling some of the latest scientific reports focused on the utilization of lignocellulosic biomass to fabricate environment friendly materials for wastewater remediation. Overall, this work is an attempt to probe proficient, inexpensive, eco-friendly nano dimensional materials based on biomass driven cellulose/nanocellulose or its modified forms that could be competently used as adsorbents for real wastewater treatment. The astonishing properties of cellulose have gained substantial attention from research consortium for its utility in wastewater decontamination as a bio-sorbent. The review encompasses information on distinct water toxicants, adsorptive removal of pollutants and research work going on in the field of wastewater remediation using bio-derived cellulosic materials as well as the hurdles faced by the scientific community in this field. Overall, it is perceptible that cellulose, being a biomass originated material, reduces the utilization of toxic chemicals, and provides an environment affable solution to the global trouble of wastewater disposal. Fabrication of such biomass based adsorbent materials can open new pavements for effective wastewater remediation.
