Sustainable Water Reuse

By 2025, an estimated two-thirds of the global population will not have access to clean water. Treated wastewater has the potential to close the gap on water scarcity.

By 2025, an estimated two-thirds of the global population will not have access to clean water. Treated wastewater has the potential to close the gap on water scarcity.

Overview

Water reuse is no longer a choice. It's a necessity.

Water availability and quality is a limiting factor for industrial and community growth, and the need to do more with less is intensifying. Industries and cities alike demand technology to meet their daily challenges, which include improving productivity, reliability and efficiency, while reducing total cost. These challenges and more underscore the need for technological innovation to transform the way we treat, distribute and reuse water.

  • Turn wastewater treatment into resource recovery potential and claim valuable byproducts in the form of water reuse, nutrient removal and energy generation
  • Meet global water and energy demands with a more sustainable water supply
  • Treat wastewater to a quality suitable for non-potable applications, including agricultural needs, groundwater recharge, industrial process

Resource Revolution of Water Reuse Workshop

Rapid ecological and economic transformation has put water supply and quality at the forefront of public priorities across the U.S. and around the world. Global leaders are actively trying to understand how they can provide for a secure water future in the face of growing populations, weather and climate changes, and financial barriers.

Water reuse is gaining momentum as a key to immediately and effectively addressing water scarcity. But how do we implement smart water reuse programs that are both environmentally and economically sound?

On February 27, 2019, SUEZ, in conjunction with Wharton IGEL, held workshop titled, "The Resource Revolution of Water Reuse," which brought together senior leaders from communities, industry, government, universities and NGOs to discuss how to implement water reuse programs that will help build a more sustainable water future.

Charles Iceland

Director of Global and National Initiatives at the World Resources Institute

Joins the discussion at the Resource Revolution of Water Reuse Workshop and explains how the United States is being challenged with water stress.


Felicia Marcus

Former Chair of the California State Resources Control Board

At the Resource Revolution of Water Reuse event, talks about a paradigm shift that we are seeing in how we are thinking about water reuse.


Guy Carpenter

Vice President at Carollo Engineers

Discusses about water reuse trends and technology at the Resource Revolution of Water Reuse event.


Heather Cooley

Discusses infrastructure finance, timelines and politics that affect water reuse projects at the Resource Revolution of Water Reuse Event


Jeffrey Kightlinger

General Manager for the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California

At the Resource Revolution of Water Reuse Event, gives an interview on how water reuse is the most viable technology to help grow and maintain a sustainable lifestyle in the semi-arid west.


Kati Bell

Managing Director of Water Strategy for Brown and Caldwell

Talks about this exciting moment in time where we have any technology available to produce any water quality needed and the digital tools that will enable accessibility at the Resource Revolution of Water Reuse Event.


Lea Senft

Constituent Advocate for the U.S. House of Representatives

Explains that while Pennsylvania is not suffering from a blatant water resource issue, it is important to understand that water is not an unlimited resource and that water reuse is a great system to keep in check water quality challenges. Listen to the full interview, which took place at the Resource Revolution of Water Reuse event on Feb. 27, 2019 in San Francisco, CA.


Mike Connor

Partner at WilmerHale

At the Resource Revolution of Water Reuse Event, which took place on Feb. 27 in San Francisco, discussed how the future of water will be to march down the path of sustainability and the efficient use of our water systems. Water reuse creates opportunity and flexibility to move water around in the system and create new supplies.


Stephen Katz

Market Development Manager at SUEZ's Water Technologies & Solutions

At the Resource Revolution of Water Reuse Event, talks about how SUEZ is developing and implementing technologies in the area of water reuse, including potable reuse, and helping to build flow sheets for advanced water reuse.
