NEW – Waterless Dying Technology in Textile Processing

A new commercial scale dyeing technology for dyeing synthetic fabric, DyeOx, has been implemented in Taiwan that utilises carbon dioxide (C02) instead of water in the dyeing process. The technology uses no water, no auxiliary chemicals and reduced energy when compared to conventional processes.

The technology was conceived at DELFT University and commercialized by the start […]

NEW – Installation of Soil Moisture Monitoring System to Improve Productivity

In a search for improved irrigation practices, three farms near Milan, installed a drip irrigation system coupled with soil moisture monitoring as part of the AquaTEK™ programme. This system allows farmers to irrigate only when needed, without stressing the plants by supplying too much or too little water. The system also allows for more precise […]

NEW – Balancing Supply and Demand Through Water Metering

The government and its regulators require all water companies in England and Wales to plan water resources at least 25 years ahead to ensure secure supplies. This is a twin track approach where the company must consider the cost-effectiveness of demand management measures before they propose resource developments. In 2009 compulsory water metering was identified […]

NEW – Public-private Partnership for Water System Upgrades (64-B)

Yanacocha implemented a comprehensive water management strategy at the mine releasing 35 000 000m3 of treated effluent per year into the local river. Furthermore, as part of a proposed expansion and in order to address environmental concerns and ongoing disputes over water, it decided to extend its water management programme beyond the mine boundary.

In March […]

NEW – Institutional Reform for Irrigation Management

Egypt has less than 700 m3 per capita per annum freshwater availability of which 85% is withdrawn for irrigation purposes. The Integrated Irrigation Improvement and Management Project (IIIMP) in the Nile Delta has been implemented to improve water distribution, quantity, quality, equity and timeliness and hence to increase agricultural production and alleviate poverty.

NEW – Reducing the cost of water re-use in the textile sector

The Arvind textile mill located near Kalol, Ahmedabad District, India uses over 6.5 million m3 of process water per year. Limitations on groundwater extraction coupled with the lack of a nearby location for effluent discharge led to the implementation of a complete water reuse system.

The total water available from the local aquifers is approximately 1.5 […]
