Demand for freshwater is steadily increasing as a result of economic and industrial development and an ever growing global population. Increase of water consumption, as well as the problem of watercourse contamination due to the discharge of municipal and industrial wastewaters alongside the effects of climate change, has severely affected availability of water resources. At present, > 80% of the wastewater generated worldwide is discharged into the environment with inadequate treatment or without any treatment at all, leading to a slow degradation of the water resources.
