Tackling Water Consumption through Water Management and Reuse

June 13, 2016 | State of the Market Report

As the global demand for water outstrips supply, the need for water conservation methods and enhanced reuse technologies is growing. Water consumption in the U.S. reached 355 billion gallons per day in 2010. Over the past two decades, the country’s water withdrawals from saline and freshwater sources have been leveling off. While the U.S. achieves significant water savings in industrial use, food and irrigation, and public use, there is a potential for more reuse. Israel and Singapore lead in reclaiming water for reuse, quenching nearly 20% of their overall water needs. Whereas, the U.S. and Australia recycle only 1% to 3% to meet their water demands. We analyze startups in the water consumption and reuse space using the Lux Innovation Grid and highlight several companies that have distinguished themselves.
