Why improving wastewater treatment is important for us all

As the worldwide consumption of water goes up, the amount of wastewater produced also rises and global pollution increases. Only the most economically advanced countries have sufficient wastewater treatment systems in place, meaning that the majority of water used worldwide is released back into the environment untreated.

Future of water

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.
