1) Living in the Water Cycle
Water recycling systems for megacities
The global water consumption continues to
rise. The result: highly industrialized countries, especially those with
megacities as well as Third World countries
are struggling with the problem of lacking groundwater supply. Plant and
machinery installers are already offering energy-efficient and
energy-generating solutions: energy-self-sufficient control systems for the
automation of day-to-day operations as well as water saving and recycling
models for new housing estates.2) Waste - Energy Source
Even today more than half of the world’s population lives in cities; by
2050 70 percent are expected to be urban dwellers. The hunger for energy and
the amount of waste of these cities require solutions.
Future-oriented ideas from the engineering sector such as energy
generation from waste and cutting-edge building technology help to reduce the
environmental burden to a minimum.3) Festo Metropolitan Solutions –
Apart from all the needs and desires of a
modern industrial society, economic growth in China
also needs water. Clear, clean water. The waterworks for the city’s 6 million
inhabitants treats 4.5 million cubic meters of water per day. It works with
Festo Technology. Some one hundred waterworks and sewage plants in China
have been supplied with Festo’s solutions – helping make the plants more
4) Drinking water emergency – if water becomes a problem
Every day, lack of access to cleanwater kills
millions of people. The main problem is the enormous amount of waste water of
Megacities such as Istanbul.
As yet Turkey's
biggest city has contaminated rivers and the Medite- rranean with its waste
water. But a cutting-edge waste water treatment system is putting things right.
Waste water is an under- estimated problem, even in Germany: Pharmaceuticals and
radio-opaque substances pollute lakes and rivers. We demonstrate how to extract
problematic pollutants via high-tech.
