The concept of wastewater treatment is not new, but the current definitions of wastewaters and treatments have a relatively recent origin. Industrialization has played a major role in this area and has been the driving force for many treatment methodologies that are being practiced today. There is a better understanding of the importance of protecting the environment and enhancing overall sustainability today. This chapter considers the past and present states of industrial wastewater treatment. It also outlines future challenges and likely developments in industrial wastewater treatment, recycling, and reuse.
