Through better water management many industries can not only reduce their environmental impact and meet societal demands for clean water, but also improve process performance and ultimately reduce costs. Water management is a key part of climate change resilience for a sustainable industry.
The water challenge for industry
Industry faces many challenges related to water, including a growing risk of water shortages and increased legislative pressures on water quality at discharge. While water re-use can help solve some of these issues, the reuse of water can have unintended impacts in industrial processes through the build of contaminants in systems. Examples of this include reduction in performance, corrosion, or biofilm formation. To address these challenges, a case by case understanding of the many factors at play is required.
A multifaceted approach
RISE has the unique opportunity to combine a broad range of expertise in industrial water management with leading process experts in many industrial sectors such as food, chemicals, manufacturing, pulp, paper and mining. Our approach is focused on understanding what limits water reuse for an industrial site and then working to remove those limitations. Our experts can work with industrial sites to:
RISE can demonstrate solutions at lab and pilot scale, perform techno-economical evaluation and support industry with implementation of solutions.
