LET'S SOLVE WATER
Soaring human demand for water has created a crisis. Despite covering almost 70 percent of the earth, we rely on the 2.5 percent of water which is fresh, and 99 percent of that is not easily accessible, the majority being trapped in glaciers and snowfields.
Africa is home to around 1.33 billion people, or 16.7 percent of the global population. Most estimates agree that at current growth rates (around 2.5 percent a year), the continent will have to support double the number of inhabitants by as early as 2050. The need for innovation in order to preserve and sustainably manage freshwater resources has never been more pressing, and organizations such as Xylem are at the forefront of these efforts. Technology is driven by society’s attitude and resolve to solve a crisis.
“Our motto – let’s solve water – is our purpose. It is our mission to unite society and react to a crisis. Our technologies are born out of this resolve, to serve this purpose. Critical to the sustainable management of water is attitude, and technology is a product of attitude.” It covers an enormous base of use cases and industries such as agriculture, commercial buildings, construction, power generation, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, mining, oil and gas, residential, municipal and transportation, to name but a few. From individual laymen and NGOs to large corporates and utilities, Xylem engages a huge variety of clients across the globe, its Africa division employing approximately 250 dedicated personnel.

Municipal Water & Wastewater Treatment
Wastewater treatment. In some ways, nothing could be more basic. Harnessing the power that nature uses to cleanse the rivers and streams – air, microbes, gravity, light – the wastewater industry has revolutionized sanitation and brought health to their communities, rivers, streams, lakes and oceans.
However, today’s demands are far from basic. Everyone must do more with less. To keep rates affordable, plant operators manage with less funding, less staff, less space, less energy consumption. You must do more – more treatment as the list of parameters on discharge permits grow and grow. BOD, COD, TSS, fecal coliforms – yes. But also nitrogen, phosphorus, metals, other pathogens and predictably soon, pharmaceutical residuals.
Older systems need to replace and upgrade original equipment. At the same time, utilities are challenged to treat smarter, squeeze more treatment out of the same footprint, reduce energy use and add advanced processes. Newer plants must predict the future, plan for expandability, and stricter limits.
When the water leaves the plant, it is no longer wastewater, but a highly valuable resource. It is ready for reuse, sometimes directly, or by downstream users, industries, potable water plants, or the ecosystem that depends upon your water for its very life.
Municipal Wastewater Pumping and Treatment
Whether big or small, all water and wastewater treatment plants and collection systems face the same issues: The combination of aging infrastructure and a dynamic regulatory environment are constantly challenging the cost of treating water. And it’s not going to get any easier. As a result, these demands combine to place a heavy strain on your water and wastewater systems and your people.
Fortunately, Xylem is an experienced partner to help you navigate these challenges.
In some cases, rental equipment is the right solution and Xylem is there with rental options. Downtime is not an option in these critical operations, and we understand that.
