Although the original purpose of water treatment was to safeguard water quality, today's global changes are being driven by resource scarcity and sustainability. NETSOL is concerned with the recovery of resources such as nutrients, energy, and water.The terms "discharge" and "dispose," as well as the terms "pollutants" and "contaminants," are no longer used to describe wastewater elements. Water Resource Recovery Facilities are focused on beneficial use and resource recovery.
WHAT IS WATER TREATMENT?
A waste water treatment plant purifies sewage and water before releasing it back into the environment. These plants remove sediments and contaminants from treated water, break down organic materials, and replenish oxygen levels.
They usually have a number of steps in the therapy process.
- 1. Collection;
- 2. Screening and Straining;
- 3. Chemical Addition;
- 4. Coagulation and Flocculation;
- 5. Sedimentation and Clarification;
- 6. Filtration;
- 7. Disinfection;
- 8. Storage; and
- 9. Distribution.
Despite covering 70% of the Earth's surface, water is a rare resource. This is because just 2.5% of this water is freshwater, and only 0.3% of freshwater is available for human consumption in lakes and rivers.
Water scarcity (water which is such a valuable resource), is the cause of many of the major difficulties that people face and must address. The three most important are:
- 1. ACCESS TO DRINKING WATER:According to the World Health Organization, 663 million people around the world do not have access to safe drinking water. There is plenty of water in many places, but it is not in human-friendly conditions. Polluted water is responsible for thousands of deaths and illnesses, as well as exacerbating poverty. Furthermore, in a world where the global population is growing, the conflict for control of water resources is generating war, making it critical to improve and maximize drinking water treatment processes. NETSOL WATER SOLUTIONS recognizes the importance of water as well as the necessity to save water for future generations; as a result, NETSOL offers innovative water treatment plants that will solve all water-related issues.
- 2. LACK TREATMENT USED: 2.6 billion people are expected to be without basic water sanitation and sewage treatment infrastructure. As a result, disease-related deaths are on the rise, and people's quality of life is deteriorating.
- 3. INCREASE IN INTENSIVE USE OF WATER: This issue is not due to a lack of access to water, but rather to it’s over use. Food production consumes more than 70% of the world's water. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), one pound of beef requires 15,000 litres of water, including the water necessary to grow the plants and feed the animal. Products from other industries, such as textiles, chemicals, and technology, are similarly affected. Excessive water use causes long-term ecosystem alterations as well as a number of ecological disasters. Only the upper reaches of rivers are free of pollution, putting a fifth of all river ecosystems at risk of extinction.Finally, many lack access to clean water. Many parts of the world are experiencing water stress, which occurs when the demand for water exceeds the supply. This leads to migration and water-related tensions amongst communities.
Although water is a renewable resource, it is important to remember that it is not an unlimited resource; it must be used responsibly, as excessive use causes difficulties. When humans use water faster than nature can restore it, major changes occur on three levels: the ecosystem, animal species, and humans. We have a problem, and it is our duty to address it. For the sake of the earth and ourselves, we must utilize water properly, rationalizing our consumption, improving access to water through procedures such as desalination and RO water treatment, and avoiding deterioration and contamination of the resource.
