Upgrade and maintenance costs are expensive. For some countries, replacing archaic pipes could take decades. For others, it may never happen. To properly address the situation, we may need more innovative solutions. It could be time to revolutionize the way we think about how water is distributed and managed.
With factors such as population growth and climate change expected to exacerbate current problems with global water shortages over the coming decades, we may well see more developing countries exploring decentralized approaches to find ways of improving access to water among their populations.
BOSAQ uses membrane technology for its systems. Within the BOSAQ off-grid drinking water production devices, use of chemicals for membrane cleaning is reduced to an absolute minimum by means of smart deployment of innovative ‘green’ fouling prevention methods.
KANAAL Z : a sustainable solution for the water crisis
If a company can connect to the sewage system for the disposal of industrial waste water, its own waste water treatment is quickly regarded as an unnecessary and unprofitable investment. However, if one takes on the necessary expertise to calculate the cost, in many cases the opposite turns out to be true.
Have you ever wondered why water drops have that circular form instead of, for example, a squared one? The answer is simple, circular shape allows molecules to hold the liquid together by occupying minimum surface area, resulting into spherical drops, as we already know.
We are all aware that water is our planet’s most valuable resource. Without enough of it, the human race would cease to exist. Which is why recent research predicting that there won’t be enough water to meet global demands by 2040 is deeply concerning. However, although current freshwater levels are depleting while the global population continues to grow, the looming crisis is not one that cannot be averted.
