Industrial water treatment is the solution to save the countryشرکت فنی مهندسی طرح و کار
Industrial water treatment is a new source of water needed by manufacturing industries. This method is both sustainable and its production is economically profitable. Industrial water treatment and industrial wastewater treatment make it possible to reuse industrial and domestic wastewater and effluents. Today, wastewater disposal to the environment, in addition to destroying the ecosystem, has polluted groundwater resources. Therefore, by recycling wastewater and producing water, while preserving the environment, a sustainable source for industrial water consumption can be produced.
The role of industrial water treatment in water supply
According to international studies, Iran must increase its water resources by more than 110 percent by 2025 to escape the water crisis. By examining international indicators of the country’s water situation, the coming years will be years of intense water stress that could lead to widespread social and political crises. Therefore, governments in Iran will have no choice but to adopt management policies regarding consumption efficiency, principled pricing and adopting new methods of producing water resources. One of these methods is the use of industrial water treatment. New industrial water treatment methods have enabled us to manufacture a variety of marine desalination plants on a large and small scale. Undoubtedly, using endless seawater resources and producing fresh water from the sea will be a sustainable way to supply water resources in the country. Another method is to use industrial wastewater treatment and municipal wastewater treatment to supply water needed by industry and agriculture.
In our country, Iran consumes an average of 90 billion cubic meters of water annually. Among these, the main share of water consumption belongs to the agricultural sector, which with a consumption of 81 billion cubic meters, has a share of 92% of the country’s total water resources. But water used by industries and the domestic sector is much more expensive than agricultural water due to the cost of industrial water treatment, transmission and distribution. On the other hand, the added value of production in the industrial sector is much higher than in agriculture. The following figure shows the total water consumption of the country in 2016 by household, industrial and agricultural sectors.
