Water - a scarce resource
On earth water seems to be available in abundance. More than two thirds of the earth's surface is covered with water. About 97 % of the water supplies on earth are salt water. A considerable part of the freshwater resources is stored in glaciers, ice caps and snow so that much less than one percent of the water supplies are natural water resources that can be used as drinking water. Against this background the supply of every human being with clean water represents a challenge.
Water is an elixir of life as well as our most important food. A healthy adult every day needs about 2.5 litres of liquid, in order to feel well and to make all body functions work well. About 130 litres water are consumed by each German person every day - among others for body care, cooking and washing. Agriculture, commerce and industry day by day need process water for production. Many people are not aware of the fact: In all foodstuff and industrial products water is contained, which is needed for production. For one cup of coffee this amounts to e.g. 140 litres, for one Jeans even 5,400 litres and for the production of a passenger car to unbelievable 450,000 litres. During the past 100 years water consumption has increased by the six fold and will redouble until the year 2050.
This is why BWT has been working at innovative solutions for the treatment of the water available worldwide every day. Nearly everywhere, where water comes across:
For technological lead in all areas of water treatment staff members in the BWT-innovation centres research, develop and optimise processes, which are used worldwide for the achievement of excellent water quality.
