Comprehensive information is provided on recent progress in the use of ferrate (FeVIO42-) as a green material for use in sustainable treatment processes, especially for soil and water remediation. Diverse synthesis recipes for ferrates were reviewed for their associated physicochemical properties as oxidants, coagulants, and disinfectants for the elimination of a diverse range of chemical and biological species from water/wastewater samples. The review includes a summary of the eco-sustainable performance of ferrate(VI) in water remediation.
