HIGHLIGHTS

  • Thermal and membrane based technologies for water purification are the global trend emerging.
  • Water recycle has the high potential in industrial sectors leading to zero liquid discharge.
  • Membrane based technologies can play an important role in cleaning of water bodies.
  • Field of desalination and water purification today requires the R&D leading to product development.
  • Basic R&D work for paper publication may not be fruitful without resulting into technology development.

ABSTRACT

This article presents the trends in water purification and desalination in India. The issues and challenges related to water problems have been brought out.  There are areas in the country which face perennial water shortage. In addition, a significant number of villages suffer from excess salinity, fluoride, iron, arsenic, heavy metals and microbial contaminations in groundwater. Adding to the general concern over the sustainable use of water, are the uncertainties about the possible impact of global climate change. The article presents some of the details of the water purification and treatment methods useful for the rural and remote areas.
