Industrial and domestic demand for water will likely grow much faster than agricultural demand, although agriculture will remain the largest overall user.

According with the IWA World Water Development Report 2018, the global water use has increased by a factor of six over the past 100 years and continues to grow steadily at a rate of about 1% per year. Water use is expected to continue increasing at the global level, as a function of population growth (the world population is expected to increase from 7.7 billion in 2017 to between 9.4 and 10.2 billion by 2050) , economic development and changing consumption patterns, among other factors.

Global water demand has been estimated at about 4,600 km3 per year and projected to increase by 20%–30% to between 5,500 and 6,000 km3 per year by 2050.  for the ‘first time in world history’ absolute growth in non-agricultural demand for water will exceed growth in agricultural demand, resulting in a fall in agriculture’s share of total water consumption in developing countries from 86% in 1995 to 76% in 2025. These projections highlight the importance of addressing water challenges facing agriculture where agricultural demand for water, and competition for it, are both set to increase. The agricultural development options adopted will be the most critical factor in determining the future for water security in agriculture and other sectors.

The US Is Losing Ground in the Race for Energy Efficiency

According to a biennial international scorecard released on Tuesday by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, Global demand for energy is projected to grow 30% by 2040.

Italy and Germany tied for first place in the worldwide energy-efficiency race. France, the United Kingdom and Japan followed suit. The United States fell, from 8th in 2016, to 10th in the new ranking of the 25 largest energy-consuming countries in the world. This shift comes as result of both recent policy changes, including the White House’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement, and amendments to the scorecard’s methodology, such as the scoring of residential and commercial building codes.

Water usage in the US has reduced to its lowest level in the past 45 years.

US

According to an official report by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), water usage has reduced to pre-1970s levels in the US.

This trend in water use shows a continued effort towards efficient use of critical water resources, which is encouraging. Just 12 states of the US accounted for more than 50 percent of the total withdrawals. California topped the list of withdrawal for all categories with almost 9 percent and the same amount of total freshwater withdrawals. Texas came in second in withdrawal for all categories with about 7 percent. Florida topped the chart for saline water withdrawal with 23 percent. And Texas and California together accounted for 59 percent of the total saline groundwater withdrawals in the United States, mostly for mining.

What could the long-term outlook look like for natural gas?

gas

Is natural gas in good shape for the future?

Natural gas demand rebounded and grew by an estimated 3% in 2017. China alone accounted for nearly 30% of global growth – with more than 30 bcm out of a total of nearly 120 bcm. In the New Policies Scenario to 2040, global natural gas consumption expands at an average rate of 1.6% per year to 2040, lower than the estimated 3% achieved in 2017 but a much higher rate than oil (0.5% per year on average) and coal (essentially flat). More than 80% of this growth takes place in developing countries, led by China, India and other countries in Asia. The challenge for the gas industry is that much of the gas needs to be imported (and so transportation costs are significant); infrastructure is often not yet in place; and policy-makers and consumers are very sensitive to questions of affordability.

Uses for recycled water

recycled

Recycled water can satisfy most water demands, as long as it is adequately treated to ensure water quality appropriate for the use.

Recycled water is most commonly used for non potable purposes, such as agriculture, landscape, public parks, and golf course irrigation. Other non potable applications include cooling water for power plants and oil refineries, industrial process water for such facilities as paper mills and carpet dyers, toilet flushing, dust control, construction activities, concrete mixing, and artificial lakes.  A number of projects use recycled water indirectly for potable purposes. These projects include recharging ground water aquifers and augmenting surface water reservoirs with recycled water. In ground water recharge projects, recycled water can be spread or injected into ground water aquifers to augment ground water supplies, and to prevent salt water intrusion in coastal areas. The use of gray water at decentralized sites for landscape irrigation and toilet flushing reduces the amount of potable water distributed to these sites, the amount of fertilizer needed, and the amount of wastewater generated, transported, and treated at wastewater treatment facilities.

China plans to modernize its agriculture

China

According to a plan released by the State Council on October 20th, China plans to take more measures to develop modern agriculture in the next five years.

The objective is to build an efficient, environment-friendly and resource-saving agriculture, maintain the supply of agricultural products and improve farmers’ income.

The national output of grain in 2020 is expected to reach 550 million tonnes, 50 million tonnes more than in 2015. China’s productivity is expected to increase to more than 47,000 yuan, compared with just 30,000 yuan in 2015.

The plan also called for the expansion of external cooperation of agriculture industry, with efforts to optimize cooperation layout and promote the healthy development of the trade of agricultural products.

Saudi Arabia has approved financial support for the environment, water and agriculture sectors

saudi arabia

Saudi Arabia has approved financial support for the environment, water and agriculture sectors worth 92 billion riyals ($24.5 billion).

Abdulrahman al-Fadhli, minister for environment, water and agriculture, said in a conference that his ministry had received “support” from the government to achieve 16 strategic goals which are in line with the economic transformation program Vision 2030: this program aims to diversify the economy by reducing dependence on oil revenues.

The essential role of water in the Industrial sector

industrial

Overall, industry (including energy) uses about 19% of the world’s total water withdrawal.

According to the IEA, energy uses about 15% of the total, which implies approximately 4% for large industry and manufacturing. It is predicted that by 2050 manufacturing alone will increase its use by 400%. Industry’s water-dependence ranges from the large users in food and beverage and the mining industry to SMEs. Water use is further expanded if the total water footprint of an industry or individual facility is considered.

As industrial technology and understanding of the essential role of water in the economy and of the environmental stresses placed upon the resource improve, industry is taking measures to reduce its water use per unit produced, thereby improving industrial water productivity. Increased attention is being directed to water quality, particularly downstream. Industry is also putting efforts to reuse and recycle water, matching water quality to use and moving towards cleaner production, with possible benefits in terms of better paid jobs within industry as well as treatment equipment suppliers.
