Conventional chemical coagulants, such as aluminium sulphate and ferric chloride are resourceful but these may change the characteristics of water in terms of physical and chemical characteristics.

As there are human health and environmental problems regarding the chemical’s usage, there are ways to develop a cost-effective, easier, and environmentally friendly coagulation process.
