World Water Day in 2023
Every March 22 we celebrate World Water Day to raise awareness about the importance of water and the need to protect this vital resource. Despite its importance, access to safe drinking water remains a problem in many parts of the world. One of the biggest challenges in ensuring water quality is the impact of chemicals used in the industry.
Chemical pollution can have serious effects on water quality, both human health and the environment. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, at least 1.8 billion people worldwide use a drinking water source that is contaminated by biological residues, chemicals, and other contaminants. Additionally, each year about 1.7 million child deaths are related to contaminated water.
Water purification technologies have evolved to meet this challenge. Today, there are water purification machines that can effectively remove chemicals and other toxic substances present in water. In fact, the WHO estimates that the use of water treatment technologies can reduce diarrheal disease by 30%. However, much remains to be done to address the problem of water pollution. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, more than 700 million tons of chemical waste is produced each year worldwide, and many of these chemicals can end up in rivers and other bodies of water. Furthermore, most industrial wastewater is not adequately treated before it is discharged into the environment.
At G&G Ibérica, we contribute to caring for the environment through the manufacture of industrial wastewater treatment plants, seeking the use of new technologies to achieve the objective of protecting this vital resource for life. This allows us to guarantee a healthier and more sustainable future for all.
