Abstract

The rapid population growth, associated with a rapid worldwide industrialization, is leading to an uncontrollable increase in environmental pollution of air and water. The World Water Council estimates that by 2030, 3.9 billion people will live in regions characterized as “water scarce,” and water scarcity is gradually becoming a big threat to food security, human health, and natural ecosystems.
