The aim of this paper is to provide an overall description of coagulation-flocculation process and its applications in water and wastewater treatment. The significance of coagulation – flocculation in the area of water and wastewater treatment is reviewed and evaluated, emphasizing on the series of applications employed, including destabilization of colloids, removal of inorganic and organic matter (particulate and/or dissolved), removal of metals and anions (arsenic, phosphate etc), as well as…
