Current patterns of agricultural expansion and intensification are bringing unprecedented environmental externalities, including impacts on water quality.

According to a new book titled “More people, more food, worse water? A global review of water pollution from agriculture”, water pollution from agriculture poses a serious risk to human health and the planet’s ecosystems. In many countries the biggest source of water pollution today is agriculture — not cities or industry — while worldwide, the most common chemical contaminant found in groundwater aquifers is nitrate from farming. We need a much better understanding of the causes and effects of agricultural water pollution as well as effective means to prevent and remedy the problem.

Two fundamental values of ISOIL Industria, since it was established in 1958, are: the belief that the work is an extraordinary opportunity of human enhancement and the continuous effort to offer clients and partners the solutions that count.

To celebrate its 60th anniversary by remembering these values, the company has taken part in a very special project: the Isoil team rolled up their sleeves to design and build a number of functional and recreational amenities donated to a residential community belonging to the Milan based charitable organisation CAF. The community currently accommodates 30 children victims of violence.

Water demand in Singapore is currently about 430 million gallons a day (mgd), with homes consuming 45% and the non-domestic sector taking up the rest. By 2060, Singapore’s total water demand could almost double, with the non-domestic sector accounting for about 70%.

Today, Singapore is internationally recognised as a model city for integrated water management and an emerging Global Hydrohub – a leading centre for business opportunities and expertise in water technologies.

Singapore’s water industry has contributed S$2.5 billion in annual value-add to the economy and created 14,400 jobs to date, putting it on track to meet its 2020 targets.

 

 

Forests are essential to water supply

Sustainably managing the world’s forests will be key to ensuring safe and sustainable water supplies for all. It is what emerges from a report released at the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) titled “ Forest and Water on a Changing Planet: Vulnerability, Adaptation and Governance Opportunities”.

Forests serve as our natural water collection, filtration, and delivery systems by collecting rain and snow and delivering it into streams, wet meadows, and aquifers throughout the year. Water flows from forests into rivers that supply our reservoirs, agricultural canals, and water tables. Forests also are key to flood control, absorbing and holding vast amounts of water in major rain events such as those increasingly seen with climate change, releasing it far more slowly, and cleanly, than would happen otherwise.

The report calls for social and environmental justice to be integrated into climate-forest-water policies, as well as for stronger participatory approaches to ensure that policy goals are sustainable and equitable.

The global commercial building automation market is growing

A water meter is a device that is used to measure the volume of water used by residential and commercial building that are supplied with water by a public water supply system. They can also be used at a well, water source or water system to determine the flow of water via a specific portion of the system. Some water meters measure water in gallons while others measure in cubic feet. According to the Water Meter Industry research report, the Global Water Meter Market is Projected to grow at 7.8% CAGR during the period 2018-2023. Global water meter industry is dispersed. China occupied a dominant position for water meter, accounting for about 45.85% in 2015, followed by EU, with the production market share of 25.32%.

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.
