Water & Waste

 

Water is globally one of the most important raw materials, and the need for clean water keeps on increasing. In many places water scarcity and pollution threaten public health and as a result the cost of water consumption increases. That is why the price of water rises and governments increase levies on waste water discharge. Both citizens and businesses are confronted with this. The corporate world not only uses water as a raw material for products but also as a tool in production, for cooling, cleaning, etc.

 

Thus, companies will start paying more for clean water intake and dirty water discharge. They are therefore challenged to plan all processes that consume water as efficiently as possible. For their installations, they must select the appropriate components and equipment and, where needed, aim for innovation of the products and processes concerned. It can also be rewarding to purify contaminated water, for reuse in their own process or for discharge as relatively clean (and therefore ‘cheaper’) wastewater. This requires investment in the often complex process engineering for water treatment.

 

The consequence is that businesses need to have more knowledge and technology in place for water treatment, while that is often not part of their core business. It is prudent to deploy expert parties, including the technical value-added distributor. This partner has broad expertise in industrial automation and the efficient control of processes that he can apply meaningfully for water savings. He can also provide the technology needed for innovation, for example, for energy savings in water treatment. He additionally provides the mechanical and electrotechnical supplies for all water-related process installations. This is how the technical value-added distributor for this sector can tap into any source.
