Water and wastewater treatment

Contending with rapid urbanisation and stricter environmental regulations

Water and wastewater treatment consumes the majority of the energy in water utilities — often because the plants are operated in a less than optimal manner. With up-to-date technology, control parameters aligned with discharge standards and optimised operations, 50% of the energy can be saved. Less energy consumption also means a lower CO2 footprint, reduced use of chemicals and better effluent quality, thereby lessening the impact on the environment significantly.
Making such improvements to water and wastewater treatment plants is not an option anymore. Effective and efficient treatment has become a necessity, in order to meet the growing needs of rapid urbanisation and climate change. It's also required to meet the increasingly strict environmental regulations.

THE CHALLENGES

  • Meeting the needs of the growing population
  • Optimising limited treatment capacity
  • Alleviating environment impacts to comply with current environmental regulations
  • Reducing CO2 footprint
