The shortage of water resource in the developing countries induced the search for alternative sources. Greywater alongside storm and ablution water might represent the best source of water because these waters have less contaminant than sewage. However, the separation of this water from the source point is the first step in the proper management which facilitates the treatment process. The selection of treatment technologies for greywater depends on the economic status and standards limits required for disposal or reuse of greywater which differs from one country to the others. In many of the developing countries, the treatment of greywater aims at achieving the basic requirements which lie in the reduction of the main parameters of greywater. The utilisation of flocculation and coagulants process might be effective for this purpose. Many of the natural coagulants have been reported to reduce the main parameters of greywater. In the developed countries, advanced technologies are used for removing of xenobiotics organic compounds (XOCs) and to produce high quality of the treated greywater. This chapter focuses on the treatment technology used for the treatment of greywater and their efficiency in the reduction of XOCs.
