NEW YORK, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Invasion of Automation and Robotics in Wastewater Treatment Techniques Globally : Rising Adoption of Next-Gen Automation Systems and Water-Bots Set to Revolutionize Wastewater Treatment
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.
Key Trends Driving Adoption of Automation and Robotics in Water and Wastewater Industry
-Aging Infrastructure in Developed Nations
Rising incidents of Billions of gallons of untreated water being discharged as a result of aging water infrastructure are pushing the governments of key developed economies, including the United States and the United Kingdom, to focus more on developing technologies and solutions that address these issues.
-Convergence of Automation and Robotics with Water Infrastructure
Critical breakthroughs in technological innovation and the convergence of automation with the water and wastewater industry are having an outsizing impact on the pumps industry. Innovations and developments that are currently underway hint at upcoming breakthroughs, but these are at least two steps away from commercialization
-Innovating to Zero
By 2020, key developed economies are expected to entirely transform their water infrastructure by adopting biotechnology as the key wastewater treatment solution, as it is eco-friendly, low-cost, maintenance free, and consumes almost zero energy
-Increased production of electricity and power
- Ensures faster and more accurate wastewater treatment
- Simplifies operations under harsh environmental conditions (such as cold temperature)
- Drastically reduces use of oxygen and energy, and also lowers operation costs
- Increases production of biogas
