Abstract

Boron is often present in water streams to be treated to match final user specifications or environmental restrictions. It can not be removed by conventional water treatments and its separation still remains an issue. An overview on this topic is provided. Needs are identified considering information regarding boron level effect on environment, human health and activities. Challenges are described envisaging boron main physical-chemical properties and current approaches for its removal. Perspectives are sketched pointing to possible technology improvements.
