The utilisation of a wide variety of composites, such as nanocomposites, activated charcoal composites, polymer composites, oxide-based composites, hybrid composites, and biosorbent composites, among others, has been discussed at length and is being offered here as a primary source of information. The adsorption technique, which has been demonstrated to be both cost-effective and effective, is expressly incorporated into the article as a means of water purification. These composites have been investigated for their potential to eliminate or treat a variety of hazardous compounds, such as heavy metal species, several classes of coloured contaminants (dyes), and a number of organic and inorganic pollutants found in wastewater. The evidence that was given demonstrates that composite materials are superior to more traditional solitary materials in terms of their efficacy in treating wastewater.
