The environmental engineering paradigm is steadily moving towards a newer generation in today’s world and is surpassing visionary frontiers. Chemical engineering and separation processes are witnessing drastic and serious challenges. Environmental sustainability is vehemently and intensely gearing towards new and fresh challenges. Environmental disasters have urged the scientific domain to take drastic measures. Man’s scientific vision at this critical juncture of history and time needs to be restructured and re-envisioned. A critical overview is drawn along with this visionary treatise to lucidly delve deep into the scientific understanding of advanced environmental separation processes, analysis and application of nanotechnology. The author with deep comprehension delves deep into the latent world of advanced environmental engineering separation processes, especially advanced oxidation processes, integrated advanced oxidation processes and membrane separation processes, particularly nanofiltration. Furthermore, this treatise opens new frontiers in relevant environmental analysis and the successful and effective application of nanotechnology in environmental separation processes. The future vision of advanced environmental separation processes is absolutely bright and groundbreaking. Scientific knowledge, scientific prowess and scientific empowerment will go a long way in opening new vistas of cognizant frontiers in the field of advanced oxidation techniques, application of nanotechnology and relevant environmental analysis in generations to come. In today’s world of fervent and cautious environmental sustainability, challenges needs to be surmounted in the field of industrial wastewater treatment, provision of clean drinking water and application of nanotechnology, especially nanofiltration, ultrafiltration and microfiltration. A deep understanding of the provision of clean drinking water and desalination is the hallmark of this paper. In a separate dimension and a separate section, the author instinctively delves deep into the hidden world of the application of membrane separation process in drinking water treatment and relevant environmental analysis. The crux of this treatise is to highlight the importance of advanced environmental separation processes and relevant applications of nanotechnology. The ultimate and purposeful vision is targeted towards greater scientific understanding and scientific truth in unfolding the hidden and latent areas of advanced environmental separation science and fostering the vision towards greater environmental sustainability.
