Providing freshwater supplies is a growing challenge in most parts of the world, but particularly in developing countries. Water stressed areas will have to become smarter in the way they manage their water resources. Many of these areas are already adopting conservation measures and implementing some water reuse schemes.
Existing centralized wastewater treatment networks are not easily adapted to sustainable water reuse practices. Reuse would require treated wastewater to be pumped back to potential reuse customers over a large pipe network that doesn’t exist, and would be too expensive and impractical to implement.
Algaewheel enables decentralization of treatment in the community, close to potential users, leading to a rapid adoption of sustainable water reuse.
Algaewheel plants can treat wastewater to urban unrestricted reuse standards, for end uses such as: toilet flushing, irrigation, recreational uses and pre-process water for industry, helping provide local water security and lowering user fees.
