Water Processing Technologies

Clean, safe drinking water is scarce. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has set international guidelines for drinking water. Almost all countries have applied water quality regulations, often inspired by WHO guidelines. According to estimation of the United Nations, over 1.1 billion people are currently devoid of continuous access to safe and clean drinking water. It is predicted that a significant fraction of the global population (over 3.5 billion people) will be living in areas with severe water shortages by the year 2025. More than half of the world’s hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from waterborne diseases. Many of these diseases can be prevented by providing safe drinking water. In this context the role of desalination and water purification technologies are vital.

Green Water I - ozone based wastewater treatment

The lack of fresh water is one of the major threats for all living creatures. Extremely sufficient and expensive methods for saving water and wastewater treatment must be researched, applied and promoted. Conventional wastewater treatment systems rely on floating of suspended solids on the top of liquid by air bubbles. A better separation effect is obtained when air bubbles are very small (micro-bubbles and nano-bubbles).

Green Water II - innovative desalination

Seawater desalination is one of the most promising fields in terms of solar energy application, mainly due to water scarcity, seawater availability and high levels of solar radiation occurring together in many parts of the world. There is an increasing need for renewable energy-powered desalination systems, as this seems to be the sole environmental friendly alternative to the conventional fossil fuel powered systems.
