– Many areas of the world are experiencing
long term drought and short term water supply
issues. As a result, a new focus has emerged on
water conservation in regions and countries that,
in the past, had not faced supply issues.
The IONZ BlueWater team will provide water audits
to help you better understand your water consumption
and wastewater production and recommend policies
and procedures for better water management and
– Major infrastructure programs are under
way in many areas to provide “purple pipe”
water. This concept has been adopted as the water
and wastewater industry responds to water supply
issues. The “purple pipe” provides
treated wastewater for reuse as non-potable technical
or service water in homes, businesses and industry
or for use as irrigation water. In some areas,
treated wastewater is also being reused to enhance
surface water or ground water supplies.
IBWS can provide on site reuse systems, providing
water for reuse in a variety of applications from
process water, technical and service water, or
for irrigation. If economics permit, high purity
and potable water can also be achieved. Our team
is available to provide assessments and recommendations
of the most practical options for each application.
New Technology Directions
to Meet the Needs – Traditional
wastewater treatment methods are often impractical
to provide the flexibility that the changing market
demands. A strong focus has been placed on new
technology development to enable appropriate measures
for the variety of conditions that must be met
for practical conservation and reuse options.
From high efficiency membrane systems to advanced
oxidation techniques coupled with new design philosophies,
the industry is evolving to meet market demand.
IBWS custom engineers each system to meet the
conditions for your project. After the appropriate
assessments have been performed, our design experts
will develop the design specification based on
project criteria for inlet water conditions and
treated water values. Control strategies will
be tailored to your needs and budget.
Treatment – Municipal wastewater
treatment has traditionally been don in large
centrally located facilities designed to service
the entire community/region. Due to various factors,
such as infrastructure costs and the associated
energy costs for moving water to the facilities
and back to the end users as reuse water, a trend
toward smaller, localized decentralized systems
IBWS offers systems for projects from resorts
to housing developments for sewage treatment in
small footprint, high efficiency systems providing
reuse water on site, eliminating the demand on
existing infrastructure. A range of systems for
on site industrial wastewater treatment and reuse
are also available.
– Mergers and acquisitions, institutional
investment, and globalization are all affecting
the water and wastewater market in an unprecedented
fashion. As the market continues to evolve, while
favorable in the long term, these changes can
sometimes adversely affect certain market segments.
Here is where IBWS really makes a difference.
Our expertise and experience allows us to fill
the gaps in the changing market and ensure that
your facility or project gets the innovation,
focus and support that you deserve.
