Invasion of Automation and Robotics in Wastewater Treatment Techniques Globally

Invasion of Automation and Robotics in Wastewater Treatment Techniques Globally

In North America alone, it has been estimated that nearly 21% of tap water is being wasted or lost during distribution year-on-year, chiefly as a result of lack of efficiency. Moreover, it has been estimated that global water consumption will increase nearly twofold in the next 7 years until 2023 and there is an urgent need for alternative water management techniques and methods that are both sustainable and efficient.

The convergence of automation and robotics with the water and wastewater industry is chiefly driven by the need for perfect accuracy and low costs while managing and treating wastewater. The key factors that are urging water utilities to resort to robotics and automation include hazardous conditions of operations, high wastage levels and costs, and high probabilities of human errors and accidents. The research service analyzes this trend for the period 2016-2020 and provides key insights about how the water and wastewater industry is evolving and what impact this trend will have on the process equipment market.
