Refining processes like distillation use high quality steam that must be generated from ultrapure water. Advanced wastewater treatment technologies will help the industry meet tough regulations concerning hazardous waste products from process operations. As the industry expands into water-scarce areas in India, China and the Middle East, marginal sources can help meet the demand for water. Desalination and reuse technologies will secure a reliable source of water and help the industry manage its water impact. Water technology suppliers have the opportunity to tap into a market worth $768 billion.
