Currently, effluents generated by the industry represent the major contributor to the water pollution problems. This is probably due to the fact that, the industry consumes a huge amount of water and simultaneously, produces high volume of highly polluted wastewater. Coagulation and flocculation is one of the physical-chemical techniques, which are widely employed to treat industrial wastewater. While implementing this method, the major concern is on how to make the process efficient in terms of economic, residual water quality and at the same time, to improve the produced sludge (in terms of quantity and characteristics) so that it will be easily treated or disposed later on. Flocs characteristics are important in determining the efficiency of industrial wastewater treatment (WWT) application. This study review for using of coagulation aids, the low cost ceramic materials (e.g. bentonite) represent a promising alternative to the expensive polymeric coagulant aids for industrial wastewater treatment.
