Feeding a growing population with limited resources
NuWater knows that an adequate supply of high quality water is vital to farming and agricultural enterprises for irrigation, maintaining livestock and maximising the quality and production of produce. As well as transportation, packaging, preparation and sanitation processes, many of which require high quality industrial process water.
Water scarcity, climate change, extreme drought and flooding, escalating oil prices and equipment costs, land reform along with the ever-increasing demand for food production are multiplying the many challenges facing the agricultural sector.
Leading the field, our tried and tested the water, wastewater and desalination plants are world-renowned for reclaiming high quality and quantities of water from seawater, brackish water, wastewater and other surface and groundwater.
Agriculture uses 70% of the earth’s fresh water, 3 times more than 50 years ago.
Approximately 40% of the world’s food relies on artificial irrigation. This is expected to increase by 19% by 2050.
Nitrate from agriculture is the most common chemical contaminant in the world’s groundwater aquifers.
Harvesting a sustainable resource
Mobile, modular, scalable and durable, our containerised plants are automated, high performing and guaranteed to deliver a sustainable re-source of water not only at the quantity and quality required but when and where it’s needed.
Our standardised mobile plants can be easily and quickly deployed to other sites or for seasonal requirements. Available for short, medium and long-term rental - reduced capital costs, improved operational costs and efficiencies means our plants deliver right down to the bottom line.
Reclaiming and reusing wastewater created throughout the agricultural process provides clients with a cost-effective, environmentally friendly water treatment solution that caters specifically to the needs of this sector.
