As global water quality is gradually diminishing due to pollution and improper waste disposal, it is increasingly threatening public health and posing immediate social and economic problems. Clean water scarcity has led to decrease in usable water volumes, increase in water-borne diseases, and hike of utility prices.
Consequently, the water utility industry is undergoing a profound transition to collect, monitor, test, and treat wastewater and combat the universal issue of water shortage. Wastewater management involves the removal of impurities and sediments to increase the effectiveness of the wastewater and meet end-user requirements.
In 2019, the utility sector is witnessing a surge in use of the Internet of Things (IoT) powered devices for wastewater management. IoT-enabled smart sensors are making it easier to conserve and promote the water resources by detecting water leaks, monitoring chemical disposal, and regulating water flow. Similarly, AI-based technology and data analytics are automating garbage separation by integrating robotic functionality into existing wastewater management processes. These approaches have made way for more intelligent water conservation, smarter irrigation, and efficient water supply system.
Understanding the emerging trend of public-private partnerships in wastewater operations, Utilities Tech Outlook has compiled a list of top 10 wastewater management solution providers to help the current municipalities and businesses faced with more stringent permit limits to pick a suitable technology partner.
The top 10 wastewater management solution providers highlighted in this issue are true leaders among the many technology vendors striving to build cost-effective, eco-friendly solutions to the clean water crisis. For example, Ecovap, the company featured on our cover story, is a leader in wastewater elimination. The company offers unique wastewater evaporation technology at lower costs while significantly reducing the adverse environmental effects of traditional disposal methods. On the other hand, our “Company of the Year,” FogBusters, Inc. develops highly effective, low-cost technology for removing FOG (fat, oil, and grease) from wastewater, and helping companies reliably achieve a low carbon footprint and comply with a wide variety of water quality regulations. Another featured company, Calgon Carbon, an environmental services company from Moon Township, Pennsylvania, provides activated carbon products with over 700 applications along with ultraviolet technologies for water and wastewater disinfection.
With several innovative technological capabilities and success stories up its sleeves, these companies are constantly proving its mettle in the field of wastewater management. We hope this issue of the Utilities Tech Outlook helps you build the partnership you and your firm needs to foster technologically-driven wastewater management strategies.
