Innovating to increase resource efficiency and reduce industrial production risks

The use of resources essential for industrial production is increasing globally. The growing scarcity of these resources in turn leads to increased production costs and risks.
On a global scale, industries now use 22% of all available water resources. At the local and regional scale, water scarcity restrains the capacity to augment production volume. Pollution through wastewater and waste discharge impacts the environment and is increasingly being regulated with stricter requirements.
In this context, sustainable water and energy use, waste minimisation and reuse as well as resource efficiency are essential focus areas for a step towards more viable industrial production.

THE CHALLENGES

  • Coping with reduced resource availability
  • Lessening increased environmental pollution from industrial and other sources
  • Meeting the need for stricter environmental regulations
  • Reducing industrial production costs
  • Improving the efficiency of technologies for treatment and reuse of resources
  • Systematising technology verification and testing
  • Managing the environmental impact of increasing industrial waste streams

OUR APPROACH

At DHI, we adopt a holistic approach to industrial production and technology. We look at the entire industrial value chain including:

  • the use of resources
  • the potential for reuse and optimisation in the production process
  • the emission of waste streams and how environmental impacts can be reduced

OUR SOLUTIONS

We support you in achieving resource efficiency and reduction of waste leachates. We also engage in innovation and testing of new technologies, which can provide value to industries and enhance their sustainability. Our solutions are tailor-made to suit our clients’ needs. They build on our detailed knowledge of production processes, technologies and regulatory requirements.

THE ULTIMATE GOAL

ENHANCED SUSTAINABILITY, CONTROLLED POLLUTION AND REDUCED COSTS
