Application of nanotechnology in the Treatment of Produced Water

Global produced water production is estimated at around 250 million barrels

per day compared with around 80 million barrels per day of oil. Discharging produced water into the environment had lately become a significant issue of environmental concern. Recently, nanotechnology has emerged as an efficient, cost effective, environment friendly and promising technology for produced water when compared with chemical, physical and biological remediation methods. The conventional methods have limitations and negative effects on the environment. Nanotechnology has significant potential to remove contaminants from environment by various approaches like adsorption, redox reaction, conversion and stabilization. It depends on using very small particles, which have very large surface area so these interactions become faster and increase its effectiveness. In this research project, zinc oxide and silica nanoparticles will be synthesized and added to the produced
