Automation plays a vital role in the wastewater industry – India’s current water and wastewater market is currently valued at over $4 billion, and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 12 per cent till 2022. This futuristic market scenario is expected to bring about numerous business opportunities for automation players in the massive wastewater industry.

“I appeal to Government leaders as well as the civil society and private sector to join forces to protect and share our most precious resource—water, and to build a more sustainable future for all,” this statement from Secretary-General, United Nations, Ban Ki-moon is a warning sign to the world that now is the time to undertake adequate measures in order to preserve and recycle water.

The United Nations World Water Development Report 2015 states that by 2050, the global water demand is projected to increase by 55 per cent, mainly owing to the growing demands from manufacturing, thermal electricity generation and domestic use.

Automation Helps to Balance Water Demand and Supply

Now this is a matter of concern. How are we going to balance the demand—supply scenario for our future requirements when we are struggling today to keep pace with our present needs? It is here that techniques such as wastewater treatment prove to be beneficial for solving the growing water crisis.

Re–Circulation and Re–Use: How Smart Water Comes to Life

19/01/2016 - Water re-circulation and re-use are two crucial aspects of ‘smart water’ – How well does the industry manage water resources? The general tendency today is to take a holistic systems approach. More process water is being re-circulated and industrial producers are recovering reusable substances and water treatment chemicals. Companies are also taking a new approach to effluent management. read...

This procedure requires great caution and has to be managed with care. Hence, industry players are opting for automated processes. Managing Director, Auma India, Arvind K Goel explains, “Automation is required for more efficient wastewater management.”

Enter the Watomate Concept

This procedure enables one to monitor the functioning of the entire wastewater management process and also provides quality results. Hence, we have coined a new term ‘WATOMATE’ that simply implies that it’s high time that wastewater management has to be automated.

The Major Energy Guzzlers in Wastewater Treatment are Identified

20/01/2015 - Wastewater plants often operate well beyond their defined energy optimum – A recent study shows that only 4 % of the US wastewater treatment plants account for 66 % of national aeration energy consumption from conventional activated sludge. Especially smaller plants could significantly cut costs by adapting a simple technical method... read...

Providing in-depth information about the market, Assistant Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Power & Water Automation, ABB India, Ramesh Kasinathan opines, “At present, not even 20 per cent of wastewater is properly treated before discharge.” This hints that India has a huge untapped potential in the wastewater treatment and automation industry.
