Water, the most fabulous resource, has now become even more important than gold because of its depletion by natural and anthropogenic activities at an alarming rate round the world. Several countries are expected to face severe water crisis by the year 2025, and the problem will be worst where water shortage already exists (Bremere et al. 2001). This highlights the importance of adequate water management and treatment. To sustain the life of fast-growing global population, it is the responsibility of each and every individual across the globe to save water with utmost care. The impact of water scarcity and diminishing water quality can thus be prevented to certain level by treating it by various prevailing technologies. The most viable technology that is expected to be a critical solution for such problems is the membrane technology because of its potentiality to remove microorganisms such as bacteria 502and fungi, particulate material, and natural organic material and also because of its outstanding alignment with sustainable development and process intensification (Quist-Jensen et al. 2015). © 2017 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
