Tapping an untapped resource
Water scarcity, stricter environmental regulations, and rising raw water costs are shifting wastewater management from ‘treatment and disposal’ to ‘reclaim, reuse and re-source recovery’.
In industry, wastewater is increasingly being viewed as a valuable resource and its reuse or recycling as a way to generate economic benefits — which in turn complements corporate social responsibility, water stewardship and sustainable development.
From textiles, packaging, food and beverages to construction, paper, chemicals and food processing, NuWater’s smart water treatment solutions reclaim and recover high quality and quantities of process and potable water from industrial 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 to changing water sources and operations.
Cutting edge technology, purpose-fit equipment and engineering ingenuity, means our automated, containerised water treatment plants offer a dramatically reduced footprint with the capacity to produce up to 20 million litres of the highest quality process water daily.
Reducing environmental impact
Reclaiming and reusing wastewater is fast becoming an invaluable resource for many industry players. Advances in technology and equipment have made wastewater treatment a more efficient option both in terms of reuse of resources and adhering to strict environmental policies and procedures.
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 various industrial processes.
