Iron is one of the most abundant metals of the Earth's crust. It occurs naturally in water in soluble form as the ferrous iron or complexed form like the ferric iron. The occurrence of iron in water can also have an industrial origin ; mining, iron and steel industry, metals corrosion, etc. In general, iron does not present a danger to human health or the environment, but it brings unpleasantness of an aesthetic and organoleptic nature. Indeed, iron gives a rust color to the water, which can stain linen, sanitary facilities or even food industry products. Iron also gives a metallic taste to water, making it unpleasant for consumption. It can also be at the origin of corrosion in drains sewers, due to the development of microorganisms, the ferrobacteries.

As for iron, the origin of manganese, in water, is at the same time natural and industrial. The same goes for its removal from water. Manganese does not present a danger to human health, nor for the environment but it is unpleasant. In fact, the water gets a black color and a metallic taste. Similar to iron, the manganese removal by physical-chemical way, can be carried out by the oxidation of Mn2+ in Mn4+, which precipitates then in manganese dioxide (MnO2). The precipitation is then separated from water by Filtration on Sand.

Iron, even in small quantities, can be one of the most troublesome elements found in water. As little as 0.3 ppm (parts per million) of iron can cause staining of fixtures, sinks, flooring, and also most anything else it comes into contact with. Concentrations below 0.3 ppm can still have profound adverse effects in manufacturing processes.
Iron affects the tastes of foods and beverages, can contribute to the block-age of pipes, and can cause many other unwanted problems. Since it has so many undesirable properties, iron removal is an important phase of water treatment.
