Advanced physico-chemical methods for treating industrial wastewater and possible ways to recycle and reuse this water are briefly discussed here. Issues pertaining to fundamentals and practice of secondary and tertiary methodologies are discussed in detail along with economic perspectives of water management. Newer insights into the existing methodologies such as coagulation, adsorption, ion exchange, oxidation, and membrane separations that can help in understanding the existing processes as well as their intensification for improved performance and economics are highlighted. A new development in the area of hydrodynamic cavitation, especially in equipment design and process development along with integration with other methods, is discussed in detail. An outline of recent developments in the area of industrial wastewater treatment, recycling, and reuse, presented here, is expected to be useful to both practicing chemical/environmental engineers and researchers working in this field.
