GLOBAL FUTURE ANALYSIS
WATER | INDUSTRY
Only 7% of the global clean sweet water use is used in industrial processes. As water bills rise, water intensive industries will relocate to more water rich locations. Conservation technologies in redesigning water devices and processes will rise severely. Companies like Ford are already harvesting and using roof water. On site purification/recycling of waste water will gain enormous popularity as clean water prices will rise and waste water infrastructures will send much more higher bills. The Ecosave (domestic) integral water model has been scaled up by WaterIndus to an industrial integral water concept. Thereby is also usable for large industrial installations, saving on water costs severely and preventing relocation needs. It only treats biological pollution. The best treatment of chemical pollution is avoiding it.
