AbstractSome applications of using nanoparticle transport in porous media are presented in this chapter. The applications include using nanoparticles in enhanced oil recovery in addition to the very wide area of application of nanoparticles in the field of heat transfer. Moreover, the combination of nanoparticles and surfactants is also presented. Another very recent application is the harvesting of atmosphere water with aid of using nanoparticles. Also, we discussed the carbon dioxide capture by nanoporous materials and its sequestration in the geological underground. Another important application presented of nanofluid in porous media is the metal hydride hydrogen storage.
