Executive Summary

Water filtration is a process that includes the removal and reduction of contaminants from water that are present in the form of particulate matter, including suspended particles, parasites, bacteria, algae, viruses and fungi, as well as other undesirable chemical and biological contaminants. Water filtration is performed to produce safe and clean water for specific purposes, such as drinking, as well as industrial, medical and pharmaceutical applications.

Nonwoven filter media is used for wastewater treatment and water filtration. The major nonwoven filter media used for this includes membranes and, most importantly, reverse osmosis (RO) membranes, which have a pore size of 0.0001 microns - smaller than the size of a sodium chloride molecule, which is 0.0007 microns. Once water passes through an RO filter, it is essentially pure water. But there are many disadvantages to this process as well. RO also removes most minerals that are present in the water, including monovalent ions, which means that it desalinates the water.

Filtration and reuse of wastewater has become a growing practice worldwide. In areas where water scarcity affects economic development, in fields such as agriculture and manufacturing, the treatment and reuse of wastewater is of utmost importance. Treatment also prevents water resources, such as lakes, rivers and the sea, from being polluted by waste discharge.

Wastewater treatment and reuse can be an expensive process. However, industry suppliers and government bodies are seeking ways to keep costs down, particularly for secondary treatment, which usually entails additional investment and operational costs. Consider a country such as India, with a large and growing population and thus a very high need for water, but where water resources are scarce. The central government is taking bold steps and has presented multiple government policies that states can choose to work with. Groundwater levels are declining at a fast pace. Around 21 major cities of India including Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad, might run out of groundwater, which would affect the lives of more than 100 million people. Many feel it is past time for India to act on wastewater treatment and its reuse. This would also bring about many opportunities for companies involved in the water treatment industry.
