Abstract

Decentralized water/wastewater treatment technologies have emerged to reach a better and more sustainable society. Access to clean water for all is a major goal identified by the United Nations to be reached by 2030. How would this concept of decentralized treatments using electrochemical technologies impact the way of living in Latin American countries? This perspective aims to identify the water/wastewater challenges in these regions, and the possible opportunities to overcome them by using decentralized electrochemical water treatment technologies.
