InWater aims to bring together the challenges and solutions for optimizing water usage and implement them quickly by bringing together business leaders, entrepreneurs, researchers, and companies that have proven technologies from within the water industry. The grand finale event will showcase the most promising technologies aiming to solve today’s water challenges. An opportunity for all event participants to engage and collaborate.
The problem: for various purposes, we need cold water; today's method involves using Cooling towers. The cooling towers require, on average, 200 cubic meters at least of water per day for an entire factory, out of which 1/4th is being drained to keep the water physical properties in control (mostly conductivity under 4000 us/cm but also chlorides and hardness).
The following are some of the main issues associated with using water from cooling towers:
The problem: We require the usage of emulsions in various activities around our factory.
These emulsions cannot be dissolved or coagulated and are disposed of in landfills.
Ideal world: a solution to remove emulsifiers so that the water can be reused.
Water Distribution Management
The problem: In many places in the world where farmers are using flood irrigation, water is being distributed by open canals that provide irregular and in-frequent water supply, with long intervals between irrigation cycles, which does not enable the adoption of drip irrigation.
Ideal world: Ability to provide to farmers water on a daily basis (daily water availability).
Example components that can be part of the overall system:
Water Impurity Management
The problem: Bad and varying water quality in world's different water sources can clog the irrigation systems if not properly treated.
Ideal world: Black box that no matter what kind of water is fed into it, the water that comes from the other side is suitable for drip irrigation
Reusing hummus Soaking water
The problem: Hummus salad manufacturing involves soaking of the chick-peas. The composition of the soaking water remaining does not allow disposal to the waste water stream.
Ideal world: We are looking for a solution to help us reuse or dispose the water directly to the sewage system.
Wastewater and effluent prediction
The problem: Mekorot cannot predict the composition of sewage entering the plant and the effluents
obtained at the end of the treatment process. They deal with issues in real-time; as a result, response times are
Ideal world: smart plants where wastewater treatment is pre planned and effluent quality is predicted in actively
The data - by request.
We can deliver all data outputs from the meters we use to analyze real time sewage/effluent composition.
Wastewater By-products Treatment
The problem: Some by-products sewage treatment plant that currently do not currently have a solution
Ideal world: A circular economy model in which zero waste is created
SAT Future capacity
The problem: there is an increase in the number of cities
and overall population connected
to the existing sewage plant;
as a result, effluent quantities are expected to rise.
Current infrastructure and technology will not
accommodate the amounts required of capacity in the
Ideal world: we find an economically-viable
solution that would allows an alternative to the existing
SAT, without alternating the "reclaimed water" status
currently granted to these water by the regulators
We are looking for cutting edge technologies that can reduce water consumption.
