During World Water Week, global ultraviolet (UV) technology solutions provider Nuvonic focuses on UV treatment in driving global water reuse.
With the EU implementation of a ranging standards for agricultural water reuse in July, on-site water reuse systems are similarly required for large development projects in San Francisco, US for water recycling too.
Water treatment using UV light technology is reportedly a cost-effective solution to enable safe water reuse. UV-C, a high-powered form of UV light, is said to destroy 99.9% of microbes without additional chemicals and the UV disinfection equipment market is projected to grow from US$5bn in 2022 to $9.1bn by 2027.
Water resources face pressure, resulting in water scarcity and declining water quality. Climate change, unpredictable weather patterns, and drought are contributors to the strain on freshwater availability, compounded by urban development and agricultural activities.
“New water reuse regulations present [an] opportunity to drive wastewater reuse on a global scale,” said Ken Kershner, global commercial director, Nuvonic.
