Opportunities and challenges of water treatment

The United Nations has defined 17 goals in its agenda for sustainable development (SDGs). The 6th goal covers the supply of all people with clean water, as well as the sustainable management of water and access to sanitation facilities. Because worldwide, the major amount of sewage continues to flow into rivers, lakes and oceans untreated.
