According to a report of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), roughly 4.5 million tons of plastic are expended in the bottling of 109 billion liters of water each year.
Besides the sheer number of plastic bottles produced each year, the energy required to manufacture and transport these bottles to market severely drains limited fossil fuels. Bottled water companies, due to their unregulated use of valuable resources and their production of billions of plastic bottles have presented a significant strain on the environment.
The WWF report suggested that water bottles be washed and reused in order to lessen their negative impact on the environment. Unfortunately, reusing plastic bottles further compromises the quality of the water, due to the fact that more and more phthalate leaches its way into the water as the bottle gets older. In another suggestion, the authors recommended that bottled water companies use BlueGold Atmospheric Water Generators in bottling facilities in order to lessen fuel expenditures for transportation needs. Regrettably, local bottling further compromises water quality due to the reduced health standards for in-state bottled water production and consumption. The bottled water industry causes a severe strain on the environment, but solutions to this environmental damage significantly lessen the quality of water in the bottles.
Bottled water, due to several factors, is clearly not a healthier or purer alternative to tap water. Also, bottled water is outrageously expensive when compared to the cost 0.02c per liter of Atmospheric Water Generators. If one is choosing only between tap, water, bottled water and Atmospheric Water Generators, Atmospheric Water Generators water is plainly the more save, pure, drinking water economical, and healthier choice. The concerns over the quality and safety of tap water that sparked the growth of the bottled water industry are still entirely present.

Tap water is nowhere near free from dangerous contaminants.

Malaysia, with an annual rainfall of 300cm (Saudi Arabia gets only 10cm a year), should not have a problem with water, right? Think again.

NOT many would believe that there is an impending water shortage in Malaysia, especially if they are Kuala Lumpur folks who are often caught in traffic jams caused by downpours. But if climate change alters the favorable rainfall pattern, we will have to come to terms with water rationing or other drastic water conservation measures.

“A study showed that 70% of Malaysians use more than they should,’’ More depressing news? Seventy per cent of them do not intend to change their water usage habits. “This is a sad reflection on the wasteful nature of consumers who do not practice sustainable water consumption”
The most recent and innovative solution to the problems of water quality has come from
Atmospheric Water Generators currently provide the best and healthiest solution to the problems of both bottled water and tap water.
Atmospheric Water Generators remove more dangerous contaminants than any other purification method, and they are uniquely designed to work with municipally treated water plus make pure drinking water from the air we breathe. The water they produce is not subject to phthalate contamination, and they are able to remove cryptosporidium from drinking water, a feat that neither municipal water treatment plants nor bottled water companies have yet managed. Also, Atmospheric Water Generators drinking water is a much more economical practice than drinking bottled water. Atmospheric Water Generators pure drinking water product costs very little. Furthermore, because Atmospheric Water Generators water uses no more energy than is already required to propel water through a home’s plumbing system, they circumvent several of the environmental problems of the bottled water industry.

A Global water crisis in coming decades could cause UK food prices to skyrocket and damage the economy.
A report from three engineering groups predicts that a rising world population, growing demand for water and the impact of climate change will make water scarcer in future.
This could push up food prices, affect economic growth and even spark conflicts, posing a serious threat to the World.
Water is one of the most undervalued natural resources in the world but it affects national security through its impact on economic growth, food supply and healthcare, the researchers said.
Direct water consumption in the UK is about 145 litres per person per day, but the report raises concerns that we rely on too much virtual water embodied in the food, clothes and goods we import.
It claims this hidden water accounts for more than two-thirds of the UK’s water footprint and is worsening water shortages in other countries.
According to the research, one kilogram of beef requires 15,500 litres of water to produce, more than ten times that required to grow the same amount of wheat.
A typical cotton T-shirt bought in Britain requires 2,700 litres of water to produce, much of which will have been used in growing the cotton, often in water-stressed areas such as central Asia, Australia, India, Malaysia, USA and Thailand.
When virtual water is taken into account, the average daily water footprint of people in the UK is 4,643 litres per person, of which about 3,000 litres is imported, according to environmental charity WWF.
One of the engineers involved in the study, said the reliance on virtual water could have a disastrous effect on the UK and called for more to be done to raise awareness about conserving water.
We think this is an issue that faces poorer nations but it’s not. A lot of the United States is under high water stress and the south-east of England is not immune to these problems, he said.
The UK must recognize its own water footprint and how it is exacerbating the water stress in already water-strained countries by importing food, clothes and goods.
He admitted it would be an uphill struggle to make people aware that water consumption was not confined to what they drink each day.
Recent wet summers had led people to take warnings about water shortages and climate change less seriously than before, he said.
Professor Roger Falconer, said that this meant the people are not thinking about the problems coming our way in five, ten years.
He said members of the public needed to be educated so they understood their individual water footprint and urged businesses to look at the use of virtual water in their supply chains in the same way they were now doing for carbon.
Professor Peter Guthrie said: Our virtual water footprint is critical and we need to give it far greater attention.
We should ask whether it is right to import green beans – or even roses – from a water-stressed region such as Kenya.
The report concludes that the UK and DUBAI government should put water at the centre of its international development policy and calls on the UK to take a lead by reducing water consumption.
It calls for the UK to manage its water in a more sustainable way from cloud to coast and declares that water impacts should be considered alongside carbon footprints in the face of climate change or start looking at Green Drinking Water Technologies Atmospheric Water Generators.

As Ghana joined the international community to mark World Water Day yesterday, the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) and its stakeholders have warned of a possible scarcity of potable water nationwide in the near future if the pollution of water bodies is not addressed

Painting a picture of a possible bleak future, the GWCL explained that although all the treatment plants in Ghana drew raw water from the various water bodies, the spate of water pollution was approaching alarming levels.

According to the company, currently some of the water bodies had been polluted beyond treatment and the GWCL feared that soon Ghana would not be able to produce drinking water.

“Water crisis looms,” it said.

It attributed the development to human activities such as illegal mining (galamsey) and improper agricultural activities along water bodies.

Other contributory factors, it said, were pollution caused by crude oil dumping, the discharge of untreated urban domestic waste and contamination of other industrial processes.

Currently, the country has achieved 77 per cent potable water coverage, meaning that  77 people out of every 100 sampled have access to potable water, but it has been warned that soon many more people will lose access to potable water.

Wake-up call

In an interview, the Head of Communications of the GWCL, Mr Stanley Martey, said the recent water shortages in some parts of the country and the attendant stress due to the long spell of dryness across the country should be a wake-up call to all stakeholders.

The government is doing its bit by investing in and facilitating donor investment in several water treatment plants, among other projects, to ensure the provision of potable water for all by 2025, he said.

In spite of the interventions, he said, the GWCL and its stakeholders feared that the national vision to make water available to all by 2025 would face challenges due to the effects of human activities on water bodies which were the main sources of fresh water for the local treatment plants.

He said the water situation was becoming terrible and could lead to a very serious crisis if conscious efforts were not made by all stakeholders, including members of the public, immediately to forestall any calamity.

For instance, he explained, previously at Daboase, the company was using 30 bags of alum to produce 6mgd but now the 3.5mgd used 75 bags of alum.

Mr Martey said the GWCL was facing a similar problem with the Weija treatment plant as a result of human activities, including fishing, farming, washing and cattle rearing along the banks of the dam.

At a ceremony to mark the day in Ghana, the Director of the Water Research Institute (WRI), Dr Osman Ansah-Asare, said waste water disposal had a significant impact on the quality and cost of drinking water produced, as well as its availability.

Making a contribution, the UN Resident Coordinator in Ghana, Ms Christine Evans-Klock, said in Ghana three out of every five people drank water contaminated by faeces, risking diseases such as diarrhoea and cholera.

Diarrhoea causes the death of over 3,600 children in Ghana every year and cholera outbreaks occur too frequently in our cities, she said.

The Central Regional Production Manager of the GWCL, Mr John Eric Kwofie, who made the call at the regional celebration of World Water Day at the Baifikrom Headworks in Mankessim, called on the commission to speed up the implementation of the buffer zone policy to check all illegal activities along the country’s water bodies.

Mr Kwoffie said the myriad of problems facing the company included farming along water bodies, discharge of waste into water bodies and illegal mining.

Of the 270,000 Mgal/d fresh surface-water withdrawals, more than one-half were for thermoelectric power, and more than one-fourth were for irrigation

The water in the Nation’s rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and underground aquifers are vitally important to our everyday life. These water bodies supply the water to serve the needs of every human and for the world’s ecological systems, too. Here in the United States, every 5 years the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) compiles county, state, and National water withdrawal and use data for a number of water-use categories.

About 410,000 million gallons per day (Mgal/d) of water was withdrawn for use in the United States. About 80 percent of the total (328,000 Mgal/d) withdrawal was from surface water, of which 82 percent was freshwater. The remaining 20 percent (82,600 Mgal/d) of total withdrawals was from groundwater, of which about 96 percent was freshwater. If withdrawals for thermoelectric power (which is generally a “flow-though process”) in 2018 are excluded, about 209,000 Mgal/d was withdrawn, of which 129,000 Mgal/d (62 percent) was supplied by surface water and 80,700 Mgal/d (38 percent) was supplied by groundwater.

WaterMicronWorld will launch the next generation of multi-functional atmospheric water generators (AWG). Robert Rainman said, “We are very excited about the introduction of our ‘utility model,’ a multi-functional 6 in 1 machine, which will not only produce pure drinking water, but will also perform as an air conditioner, heater, dehumidifier, air purifier and water purifier. The AWG Technology can be used year-round in all seasons, making it one of the most versatile and cost effective appliances of its time.”

WaterMicronWorld Will focus on marketing AWG in Iran and the Middle East, where the demand for clean drinking water continues to grow at a rapid pace.

China, which has a population of nearly 1.3 billion, has seen tremendous growth in the number of AWG in households, which is somewhere between 26 to 33 million. The demand for AWG technology is expected to continue to grow commensurate with the rise in overall living standards.

The demand for water is now a multi-billion dollar per annum industry worldwide.

— Water is the most purchased non-alcoholic beverage in the United States

— The water market generates annual sales of more than $7.7 Billion ($3 billion non-carbonated)

— The water market is growing at 5% to 8% annually

Mr. Rainman concludes, WaterMicronWorld Multi-Functional AWG Technology, shall penetrate simultaneously the multi-billion dollar markets for pure drinking water, air conditioning, heating, dehumidifying, air purification, water purification”
