Influence of the Properties and Concentration of Pollutants in Wastewater on the Choice of Methods and Technologies of Industrial Water Treatment: A Systematic Review

Evgeniy Neverov, Alena Gorelkina, Igor Korotkiy, Roman Skhaplok


This paper focuses on industrial water treatment, namely modern methods and technologies of pollution removal. The paper discusses the main problems associated with industrial wastewater pollution and describes the most effective purification methods and technologies used in modern industrial processes. Information is provided that allows for a comprehensive and accurate study of modern methods and technologies of industrial water treatment, including a detailed analysis and assessment of the advantages and disadvantages of each of these methods. Authors conducted a literature review for collecting relevant biochemical and molecular approaches to industrial wastewater treatment. Relevant reviews and research papers were selected for detailed analysis. The authors have described each method and provided examples of its application and effectiveness in removing certain types of contaminants. The results of the study indicate that there are many methods and technologies for water purification, but not every method is suitable for all pollution types. The paper contains new data and practical recommendations that can be used by specialists in the field of water treatment to reduce the negative impact on the environment.
