With rising population, urbanization and industrialization combined with closing river basins, India is left with highly water stressed regions with the inability to efficiently manage its water resources. Consequently, the average per capita freshwater availability is expected to reduce to 1241 m3 by 2025. It is also estimated that around 29.3 billion cubic meters of water will be required for domestic and industrial purposes by the year 2025. Therefore, efficient and economic biological treatment of industrial wastewater and its reuse have emerged as a potential solution to meet water demands in the future.
