Did you know that it takes 15,415 litres of #water to produce 1kg of meat, 9,063 litres of water to produce 1kg of nuts, and 322 litres of water to produce 1kg of carrots? The world is running out of water and, according to the United Nations, about 9 billion people will inhabit our planet by 2050. Earth will require more water to produce the estimated 60% extra food needed. But the #agricultural industry is already the highest user of water, consuming up to 52% of our global water supply.
#Wastewater treatment has become the cornerstone of the agricultural industry. A relatively untapped resource—offering a ‘triple dividend’ to cities, farmers and the environment, wastewater use in agriculture promotes #sustainable farming, reduces purification levels and fertilisation costs, ensures a reliable food supply to towns, and preserves scarce water resources while maintaining environmental quality.
Delivering projects across the entire water cycle that balance social, economic and #environmental priorities – NuWater is championing the face of modern agricultural wastewater treatment with its rapidly deployable and re-deployable modular and mobile water treatment systems that reclaim high-quality and quantities of potable water from seawater, brackish water, and wastewater.
