Filteration is a process in which we purify fluid through filter paper or any process by means of mesh screen etc while sedimentation is a process in which the particals settle down at the bottom of the container and fluid remains at the top, particles settle down due to gravity. The aim of the both proceses are same but method, efficiency are different.

Whose efficiency is better?

I think filtration has more efficiency because in sedimentation process only high molecular weighted particles goes down and in filtration mostly all particles remove from fluid.
