After the Conference for Environment in Stockholm 1972 and the first report to the Club of Rome „Limits of the Growth“, which has been published in same year, was finally understood, that the technological progress can bring also undesired effects. As a consequence of the recognized situation, debates on a global level have started concerning potential solutions. After long debates on scientific as well as on sociopolitical levels, the concept of Sustainable Development has been defined in the Brundtland Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development, as a potential answer. Many actions after this time emphasize that the evolution of technical, economic, as well as environmental and social systems has to be approached by considering physical, chemical, biological, economic and social processes. Registered advances in technological field combined with the field of physics, as representing basics for developments and advances in nanotechnology have emphasized the existence of its multiple using odds also in environmental field. In particular, the application of carbon nanotubes, CNTs for environmental protection seems to bring advance in this field. A first step is represented by designing environmental sensors by using CNTs in order to carry out suitable environmental monitoring for environmental protection.
