Among the many drivers in the realm of industrial waste water treatment, five stand out. Water security is the first among them. Significant global actions emanating in this space span risk assessments and mitigation strategies against frequent and intense natural and man-made disasters to ageing waste water infrastructures. Climate change stands next, impacting water security, sustainable development and human wellbeing at large.Reducing, reusing and recycling stands third albeit with several taboos and public health risk perceptions surrounding its usage.Rapid pace of novel technology pipelines development stands fourth but with somewhat larger lead times to commercialization and mass adoption which brings to the fore, the fifth driver, and that is that of capacity building in skills, institutions and awareness paradigms to help future generations brace up to a water constrained world.
IW2T3 Initiative, on the occasion of World Water Day 2017 (Waste Water Theme) , tracks 15 key global driver – application – technology trends in ‘industrial waste water treatment’ and presents them in a graphically intuitive way which range from water security , nutrient recovery to aging waste water asset risk analytic platforms.
We hope our modest effort helps wide spread dissemination of such emerging trends among water focused innovation and incubation and responsible business ecosystems both in India and the world in order that, significant capital, flows into catalyzing entrepreneurial and responsible business action towards SDG Goal 6 targets achievement and provision of clean and safe water for all.Happy World Water Day 2017!
