Our Water Re-Use Vision by Dr. Rolchigo

We have identified the theme of water reuse and resource recovery from liquid waste streams as a prime target for engineering innovation and investment.  We utilize technology and our deep applications knowledge to develop innovative, highly efficient solutions to accelerate nature’s natural process of water recycling and reuse. Our products and services mirror our expertise in water purification, ranging from producing potable water to treating wastewater. One of the largest opportunities for recycling water recycling is in the food and beverage industry due to the massive amounts of water used to get food from farm to table.  The Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that it takes 2,000-5,000 liters of water per day to produce one person’s food.  However, recycling of these waters is challenging due to the high levels of organic matter found in these wastewater streams. Over the past five years we have created a number of award winning solutions to greatly increase the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of reusing municipal and industrial wastewaters. With the world’s population projected to grow significantly in already water-stressed regions, reusing water within food production and processing becomes imperative.
