Water is unarguably the very basis of our lives on the earth. An important natural resources, this entity is used in excessive quantities in almost every imaginable aspect of our lives. In sectors such as irrigation, drinking, and a number of industrial activities, there can never be an alternative to water.

In the past few years, the global population has expanded at a mounting pace, leading to the excessive demand for water to be used in daily activities across households, and for drinking, more prominently.

The industrial sector has also exhibited extensive growth across all corners of the globe. The progress in industries is a key marker of the pace at which economies are developing and quality of life is improving. It is, however, also a major marker of the extreme rise in the amount of water required to fulfill its immense need across major production, processing, refining, and many other activities, especially in the manufacturing sector.

Industries are also a major producers of impure water and other wastes that are most often released in nearby water bodies, polluting them and in essence, limiting the quantity of available usable water.

Add to these factors the continuously declining freshwater resources on earth, the infrequent rains, and the increased rate of evaporation of available water resources due to temperature rise and global warming. As a result, the world is facing a serious scarcity of water and the industrial sector will start experiencing the crunch of this situation in the form of immense water shortage for undertaking various operations.

The field of wastewater recovery has witnessed a huge rise in focus from the industrial segment in the past few years as companies have started realizing the pronounced for managing their water sources judiciously.

A large number of companies are adopting effective wastewater recovery measures and techniques such as reverse osmosis, membrane filtration, and media filtration to recover as much water possible out of the total amount of water utilized for several operations. Technological developments and advancements in the field of wastewater recovery are also enabling companies in adhering to their goals of recovering usable water from the wastewater generated.
