By 2025 a significant percent of the Global Population will not have access to clean water for drinking or hygiene, what do you think is the best solution?
- Education and awareness 33%
- New conservation projects 0%
- Recycle waste water 46%
- Atmospheric water generation 13%
- Rain water harvesting 6%
Recycling seems to be most favorable, but comments to the post seem to indicate “all of the above.” You can go to the Global Water Works Tech Showcase to find those companies in the showcase that support recycling water and other solutions.
