First-of-its-kind Emory University program exposes students to cutting-edge technology for water recycling and reuse As a self-proclaimed “life-long student,” I am required to do a lot of reading. And more reading. That “more reading” is a perfect fit for my new role as a Senior Researcher at GlobalWaterWorks. I was recently reading my copy of
I always enjoy learning from Rich Meeusen, CEO of Badger Meter, who is also the Chairman of The Water Council. He is an encyclopedia of water history and knowledge, and I thought his reflections on a better water legacy, modeling Scrooge’s new legacy in the Christmas Carol, were worth repeating: Future visions like the 2030 Report on
Each year, over 200 times more groundwater is extracted from the earth than oil. According to the International Hydrogeologist’s Association, groundwater provides 50% of the water needed for irrigation and drinking water in the U.S. And, it provides as much as 99% of the water needed in land-locked countries and desert climates. While groundwater is the
Innovations at this month’s International Emerging Technology Symposium (IETS) provided a strong economic case for investment in water-saving technology. One such innovation, the NASA-engineered Orbital Systems shower, uses a closed-loop system to recycle heated water. The “shower of the future,” already in use in Europe, captures energy and water savings as high as 80% and 90%, respectively.
