Coagulation and Flocculation

Abstract

Coagulation and flocculation constitute the backbone processes in most water and advanced wastewater treatment plants. Their objective is to enhance the separation of particulate species in downstream processes such as sedimentation and filtration. Colloidal particles and other finely divided matter are brought together and agglomerated to form larger size particles that can subsequently be removed in a more efficient fashion.
