INCREASING THE WATER AVAILABILITY AND PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
Global demand for water is projected to exceed supply by 40 percent in 2030. Rising demand, cost and environmental awareness are driving the need for improved efficiency and sustainability of water treatment plants. Treating the waste water to recycle/reuse has become a viable option in order to minimize the water scarcity problems. However, waste water treatment options will be dependent on the type of contaminants present due to the production processes. Necessary treatment will then be determined to ensure efficient water recovery. Discharge of waste water requires further treatment to comply with the local environmental regulations.
