Abstract

Natural zeolites are good potential material for water and wastewater treatment. It is due to the advantages of low cost, ion-exchange and adsorption capability of the natural zeolites. It can also be modified and regenerated. This paper thus looks at efforts made in exploring the potential application of natural zeolites and modified natural zeolites in water and wastewater treatment especially for reducing or removing contaminants in greywater, a type of wastewater originated from bathrooms and laundries in household. The material to be reviewed in this paper includes (i) major greywater contaminants and (ii) the potential of natural zeolites for greywater treatment.
