Veolia Water : Taking on the world, one project at a time. | Water Management | Scoop.it

One can hardly be surprised that such a company, founded in 1853, would in time feel squeezed in its small originating country, France. After over 150 years of operating, Veolia Water has been piling up the landmark projects across the globe. But why this one? Every developed country in the world developed a water treatment agency, but not all have done this well. The company has focused on industrial wastewater management, a particularly complicated process, and that strategic choice is proving the right one for Veolia Water.

Desalination industry enjoys growth spurt as water scarcity starts to bite - AME Info

Desalination industry enjoys growth spurt as water scarcity starts to bite - AME Info | Water Management | Scoop.it
AME InfoDesalination industry enjoys growth spurt as water scarcity starts to biteAME InfoThe past five years has seen a 57% increase in the capacity of desalination plants on-line according to the latest data published by the International...

The growth of the market for desalination reflects the fact that coastal communities are increasingly turning to the sea to meet their drinking water needs, while inland there is a tendency for groundwater to become increasingly brackish over time. Around 60% of desalination capacity treats seawater; the remainder treats brackish and less saline feedwater.

Christopher Gasson, publisher of Global Water Intelligence said, "At the moment, around 1% of the world's population are dependent on desalinated water to meet their daily needs, but by 2025, the UN expects 14% of the world's population to be encountering water scarcity. Unless people get radically better at water conservation, the desalination industry has a very strong future indeed. Seawater desalination is the only additional renewable source of freshwater available on this planet."

Water Treatment in China

Water Treatment in China | Water Management | Scoop.it

The market for water treatment products in China is expected to grow more than 10 percent per year to 46.6 billion yuan in 2015, posting one of the fastest growth rates among national markets. Advances will be driven primarily by the continued strong growth in manufacturing, power generation, and other industries in China. Government efforts to increase access to fresh water and improve the poor condition of surface water sources, which supply most of the country's water needs, will also spur demand for water treatment chemicals, equipment, and supplies.
