Benchmark

The inaction letting wastewater untreated is costing USD trillions to the global economy.


In 2010 Prof. Willy Verstraete, environmental biotechnologist at Ghent University, calculated that every 1,000 gallons of wastewater contains the equivalent of $1.88 worth of fertilizer, energy as methane, beneficial organic matter for soils (like compost), and clean water.
Since then, new technologies and the increased prices of some non-renewable resources make wastewater investments more and more attractive.

 

Wastewater can have a higher value than clean water.

 

 

Increasing knowledge in recycling commodity prices and related value chain (reducing health, environment and business risks) is a good way to manage your activities, get good return on investments and not miss opportunities.
