WATER AS A RESOURCE
Water is a valuable commodity. We wouldn't be able to function without it. When you look at a globe map, you'll notice that water covers a large portion of our planet. Our seas aren't the only place where we can get water. Water can also be found underground and as vapor in the atmosphere. Water falls back to Earth as rain, sleet, snow, or hail thanks to clouds generated by this vapor. Although there is plenty of water all around us, the majority of it is not freshwater. We can't drink ocean water because it's too salty. Much of the water that returns to the Earth in some form or another is referred to as runoff. It goes a short distance over land before returning to one of the world's oceans.
The water picks up salts and minerals from the rocks and soil as it travels over land and washes them into the ocean. The sediments have accumulated over a long period of time. That is why the water in the ocean is so salty. Salt water makes up over 97% of the world's water. Freshwater is just approximately 3% of the total, which is insufficient to support the demands of people, plants, and animals. Water that seeps into the earth and gathers in the crevices between rocks and soil underground is referred to as groundwater.
We have access to only approximately a third of our freshwater. The rest is solidly frozen in glaciers, high alpine snow, and the polar ice caps. We get our freshwater from both surface and groundwater. Water that we see in ponds, rivers, lakes, and streams is known as surface water.
WASTE WATER INTO WATER RESOURCE
Wastewater can be treated to various levels of quality to meet the needs of various industries and agricultural sectors. It can be processed in environmentally friendly ways, and it can even be reused as drinking water. Wastewater treatment allows rare freshwater resources to be used or preserved for other purposes. Furthermore, wastewater treatment by-products can be used for agricultural and energy generation, making wastewater treatment plants more environmentally and financially viable.
Resource recovery from wastewater facilities in the form of energy, reusable water, biosolids, and other resources, such as nutrients, provides an economic and financial benefit that helps to ensure the long-term viability of water supply and sanitation systems, as well as the water utilities that operate them.
ADVANTAGE OF PROCESSING WASTE WATER
Resource recovery and reuse may turn sanitation from an expensive service to one that is self-sustaining and contributes value to the economy, which is one of the main benefits of applying circular economy principles in wastewater processing. Improved wastewater management offers a double value proposition if financial returns can cover operating and maintenance costs partially or completely.
ROLE OF NETSOL WATER SOLUTIONS IN CONVERTING WASTE WATER INTO WATER RESOURCE
Wastewater from industrial laundries contains a distinct blend of suspended solids, oils, greases, heavy metals, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). DAF units and filter presses from NETSOL are effective at removing these solids from laundry wastewater and can help you recycle water to optimize operations.
Contaminants in source water can wreak havoc on heating and cooling systems, piping systems, and point-of-use applications. Poor water quality can also shorten the life of equipment, reducing reliability and increasing operational costs.
NETSOL Water Solutions understands the importance of maintaining proper water quality in facilities for efficient operation. Whether it's filtration for particulate removal, disinfection, or pretreatment of boilers or cooling towers, our diverse portfolio of water treatment products and services ensures we have the right solution to meet the specific needs of your facility. NETSOL can assist with challenges such as increased process demand, compliance with stricter regulations, water and discharge costs, or corporate sustainability initiatives. Our extensive application expertise and broad range of equipment solutions can assist engineers, consultants, and plant managers in procuring and delivering a comprehensive solution with minimal disruption to existing operations.
