Technologies Designed for Wastewater Reclamation and Reuse Enable Industries to Reduce Fresh Water Consumption

In the view of increasing industries and the limited availability of water resources for various operations in the industries, there is a rising need to adopt sustainable water management practices by water-hungry industries. The way forward to develop sustainability, by reducing the dependency on external resources for water, is to adopt wastewater reuse and recovery technologies. The wastewater that is released from the industries is subjected to a series of treatment processes to make the treated water fit for reuse. Direct release of wastewater with no or little treatment into the water bodies nearby will result in environmental contamination.

The treatment of industrial wastewater is important to comply with the stringent discharge limits framed by regulatory bodies around the globe. Wastewater from industries is not only a source of pollution that requires treatment before release, but also a source of water and clean energy (biogas generation using digesters). This research study discusses the potential for industrial wastewater reuse and recovery and the treatment technologies designed to achieve reuse of wastewater to meet strict discharge limits and improve sustainability.
