Abstract

Nanotechnology being a universal technology has potential abilities to provide solutions to the environmental degradation problems through its precision pollution monitoring abilities using nano-sensors, lower energy needs due to lightweight strong materials, and reducing the use of harsh cleansers through the applications of nano-coatings to the surfaces. A more advanced nanotechnology solution will lead to building a product with molecular-level precision through the use of productive nano-systems. In this paper, we analysed the use of nanotechnology and techniques in controlling environmental pollution with an emphasis on air pollution and water pollution. We have developed a concept of using nanotechnology-based techniques in optimizing large scale environmental cleaner using bottom-up and top-down methods based on a systematic review. Finally, a segregated large-scale environmental cleaning machine called mega-machine is proposed which works on renewable solar/wind energy and scaled up or down. The proposed concept of the machine is analysed using ABCD framework.
