The difficult goal of the twenty-first century is to clean up the environment's toxins using environmentally friendly, sustainable, and commercially viable technology. Nanobioremediation is a relatively recent approach for removing contaminants from the environment using biosynthetic nanoparticles. Nanotechnology is still a relatively new discipline, although it is fast expanding. The current research speculates on the manufacture of nanoparticles by plants, bacteria, yeast, and fungus, which are developing as nanofactories and might be used in environmental cleaning. The majority of biogenic nanoparticles that have been examined have shown to be quite effective. The biosynthetic path to nanoparticle production may prove to be a more effective and safe alternative to traditional techniques. The current study gives an overview of several types of nanotechnologies used in biological bioremediation.
