Tapping an untapped resource
Water scarcity, stricter environmental regulations and rising raw water costs are shifting the focus of wastewater management from ‘treatment and disposal’ to ‘reclaim, reuse and preserve the resource’.
In industry, wastewater is increasingly being viewed as a valuable resource and its recycling and reuse as a means to generate economic efficiencies — which in turn compliments corporate social responsibility, water stewardship and sustainable development.
Whatever the particular industry including textiles, packaging, food and beverage, construction, paper, chemicals and food processing, NuWater’s mobile and modular smart water treatment plants recover high quantities of quality process and potable water from any wastewater streams efficiently and economically.
Globally, Industry draws up to 40% of all water available and is one of the biggest contributors of industrial wastewater.
Total water usage
In South Africa industrial water use accounts for approximately 8% of total water usage, and is increasing exponentially.
Rapidly industrialising countries’ current populations could increase 5 times over the next 10 to 20 years, driving water scarcity to new lows.
Solutions that make good business sense
Mobile, scalable and compact, NuWater’s water, wastewater and desalination plants are easy to transport and commission on-site, or redeploy if changes in water quality or operations necessitate a change.
A combination of the use of the latest technology, tried and tested equipment and innovative engineering, results in our automated, containerised water treatment plants requiring a significantly reduced footprint with the capacity to produce up to 20 million litres of the highest quality process water daily.
Reducing environmental impact
The reclaiming and reusing of wastewater is fast becoming an indispensable requirement for many industrial and other operations. Advances in technology and equipment have made wastewater treatment an efficient option both in terms of the reuse of water and also full compliance with prevailing environmental legislation.
In addition to cutting operating and equipment maintenance costs, NuWater’s wastewater treatment solutions are fit for purpose and engineered to produce the exact quality of water required for your industrial processes.
