Water for power front cover1

The power generation sector is the largest industrial user of water in the world, with a need for enormous volumes of water for cooling and ultrapure water to supply boiler systems. Investment in water treatment technologies for this sector is worth $2.1 billion. Rapid industrialisation and economic growth in South East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa is increasing demand for electricity, requiring significant investment in water technologies. Environmental regulation will push for increased treatment of scrubber wastewater and solutions to reduce the burden that cooling places on the local environment.
