Water treatment is one of the key areas in the pollution engineering. Removal of organic and inorganic matter is essential for environmental conservation. Various conventional treatment techniques include physical, chemical and advanced treatment processes. The removal of metal ions from wastewater is widely investigated research area. Manganese and iron are two such heavy metals. Manganese removal is difficult because of its high solubility. Various chemical and biological methods can be used for manganese removal. These methods include biosorption, adsorption, biological methods, chemical methods and precipitation. Current review summarizes research and studies on manganese removal.
