Utilise the full potential of new water technologies.
The water sector is under increasing pressure from population growth, economic development, climate change and urbanisation. These factors are intensifying water scarcity on a global scale, driving demand for an innovative approach that addresses the inherent energy, cost and performance inefficiencies of existing water and waste water treatment facilities and networks.
Emerging technologies present utilities, operators, EPCs and investors with a high degree of uncertainty regarding reliability and comparability. In particular, the need for higher efficiencies and overall sustainability has led to the wide deployment of membranes, sensor systems and other novel technologies. However, in the absence of objective comparative evaluation, stakeholders may risk making poor investment decisions.
TÜV SÜD supports the water sector with performance testing and verification services for key technologies and components such as membranes, sensors and water purifiers. These services can be provided in the lab or in the field. Operators, utilities, investors, end users as well as EPCs and equipment manufacturers can gain confidence in their technologies and investments by having products tested and verified.
