Nanotechnology: - It is one of the modern scientific achievements where nanotechnology is
available, namely the engineering and art of nano scale material treatment (100 nanometers.
The ability to manufacture new Nano materials used to treat surface water, groundwater and
industrial wastewater contaminated with toxic metal ions, organic and inorganic substances as well
as microorganisms.
In this research, we discussed the use of Nano materials, or nearby, to remove the dissolved oil
pollutants from the industrial wastewater of the South Refinery Company, where we used multitubes
of carbon nanotubes. The function of the tubes can be described as a particle filter, Hold large
particles of contaminants that are difficult to pass through the tube tunnel). We also used activated
carbon powder and carbon filters near pore nanoparticles
