Water Treatment Chemicals
Water treatment is any process that improves the quality of water to make it more acceptable for a specific end-use. The end use may be drinking, industrial water supply, irrigation, river flow maintenance, water recreation or many other uses, including being safely returned to the environment. Water treatment removes contaminants and undesirable components, or reduces their concentration so that the water becomes fit for its desired end-use. This treatment is crucial to human health and allows humans to benefit from both drinking and irrigation use.
Whether it’s for cooking or basic sanitation needs, the role of water remains irreplaceable as the entire human survival depends on water. It is estimated that about 3.4 million of the world’s population die every year due to deprived access to clean drinking water. Providing safe drinking water remains a global challenge, for which only chemistry has a solution. Being a boon to the mankind, the chemical industries have come up with various water treatment chemicals which will improve access to clean drinking water.
