Growing demand for Water Treatment Chemicals, such as flocculants, coagulants and strong oxidizers (such as hydrogen peroxide), has led to greater use of these substances in water treatment processes. The use of Water Treatment Chemicals, which are designed to clean the water, have made it possible for communities with limited resources to develop improved drinking water supplies.

With growing awareness of the importance of clean water for human health and the environment, treated wastewater is being released into freshwater bodies with increasing frequency. Today most industrialized cities have a tertiary wastewater treatment system which includes removal of organic materials and phosphorus from domestic sewage through a series of physical, chemical and biological steps before discharging treated effluent back to a surface water body. Discharges from industrial scale point source pollution require site remediation before they are release back to a freshwater body.
