Clean energy and clean water – a perfect match

Water and energy are our most important resources and the industrial sector is the second-largest user of water in the world, the first being the agricultural industry. Since wastewater treatment is often a vital part of production processes in this sector, solutions that supply solar heat and treat water in one go will be the key to maximising energy efficiency in industrial facilities. All that is needed for a greener future is a combination of concentrating collectors and vacuum evaporators or membrane-based distillation units. This month’s newsletter will introduce readers to the world of solar wastewater treatment by showing ways in which technology suppliers have teamed up to help the market grow.
