Beneficial use of environment has always been an important realization. The quality of environment in which we live indicates the standard of living. Urbanization and industrial development on one hand effects on the quality of life and on the other hand increasing industries develop a country economically, provides greater employment and higher standard of living but makes the environment more polluted. Of the various resources of environment, water is more severely threatened by pollution because of sewage and industrial waste disposal. Therefore proper methods should be developed to remove and recover these materials before things go out of control. A novel approach is the use of Ion exchange materials - Natural and Synthetic, which can be used to remove these ionic species by ion exchange, ion exclusion, absorption and sieve action processes.A regeneration cycle may be applied to recover these species from ion exchanger beds.
