The world at large has acknowledged the importance of environmental issues. The depletion of natural resources, such as drinking water, and the emission of greenhouse gases that result in climatic change and the deterioration of human health, are the primary concerns. As urban areas expand rapidly, they exert enormous strain on nearby water supplies, leading to a global freshwater demand surge that is outpacing population expansion. The development of polymer nanocomposites has contributed significantly to the search for viable answers to pressing ecological concerns. Their ability to eradicate pollutants, including gas emissions, heavy metals, and dyes in wastewater has garnered researchers’ attention. In this overview, polymer nanocomposites, as well as the composites reinforced with biocarbon that are used in environmentally friendly ways, are discussed in detail. The adsorption mechanism and applications of polymer nanocomposites for the removal of hazardous metal ions and dyes were also studied.
