Water & wastewater treatment equipment removes unnecessary particles like salts, pathogens and toxic chemicals. Water treatment is an important process that maintains the ecological balance. Humans consume large amounts of fresh water and seawater, for agriculture and industrial use. As clean water is important for the survival of biological organisms, along with air and food, it is very important to maintain a constant supply of fresh water and not release hot and toxic waste into water bodies.
Oil separation from water, dissolved solids deletion, suspended solids removal, biological treatment and disinfection are some of the technologies used for water and wastewater treatment. These technologies are discussed in detail this report. All these technologies are important for wastewater treatment, as a single technology cannot derive fresh water from used water alone. Recycling wastewater involves a series of processes.
Water, in spite of being abundant in supply, is a limited resource. The demand for water and wastewater treatment has steadily increased since industrialization. Industrialization and modern agriculture practices necessitate the appropriate treatment of used water to make it fit for re-use. The increasing human population drives the demand for fresh water, which further drives the market for water & wastewater treatment.
Major players in the water & wastewater treatment technology market, which we discuss in the report include AECOM, Aquatech, Black & Veatch, CH2M HILL, Dow Water & Process Solutions, Evoqua Water Technologies, GE Water, Kurita, Schlumberger, Suez Environnement, and Veolia Water Technologies.
