A water footprint is the total amount of fresh water used to produce a good or service, considering the availability of water in countries where it is used. The impact, in fact, depends not only on the volumes of water used or polluted but also on where and when the water is extracted: if it comes from a place where water reserves are already scarce, the consequences will be significant and require immediate action.
Everything we eat and buy requires a certain amount of water, often “invisible”. Water footprint calculates the water quantity we are unaware of consuming. For some time now, there has been a proposal to indicate the water footprint of each product, as is done with CO2.
We believe that looking to a world increasingly inspired by the principles of a circular economy can guarantee us multiple advantages, including a reduction in pressure on the environment, optimization of the use of raw materials and therefore an inevitable boost to innovation and economic growth. We are committed to ensuring that nothing that works is “thrown away”, but rather “recycled”.
By reusing part of the materials needed to produce our catalyst from used batteries, we are not only able to keep production costs down, but we are also allowing waste to become a product once again that actually contributes to environmental protection.
Our systems require very little electricity if we compare them with those built using the most common technologies; the percentage saving is between 50% and 70%.
The machines built thanks to the application of our technology integrate perfectly with any pre-existing plant: an old plant can return to work or increase its treatment capacity instead of being dismantled.
We wanted our machines to be “modular” so that they can grow together with the company that uses them or adapt perfectly to the flexibility of some types of production.
