What Is The Global Water Crisis?
Water is essential to life, yet 844 million people in the world – 1 in 9 – lack access to it.
According to a report by the World Economic Forum, the water crisis is the #4 global risk in terms of impact to society.
The Water Problem
2.1 Billion people access unsafe water daily, making WEL believe the water crisis is the #1 global risk. Pollution accounts for 9 million deaths worldwide, 1.8 million being water-related (as of 2015).
As far as water is concerned, supplies are abundant, but the quality of water is almost nonexistent.
The Waste Problem
Business & Human Activity produce unsustainable volumes of waste.
The United Nations has made this a priority in its Sustainable Development Goals.
Without its cleanup, our global supply of water is threatened.
WASTE & POLLUTION, The by-products of industry and today’s human way of life
Our generation and population excel in the sustainability of old and in the creation of new toxic hazards (i.e. pollution).
- Over 80% of all wastewater returns back to the environment untreated as pollution
- 5 billion people are exposed to hazardous sanitation
- Pollution accounted for 9 million deaths worldwide, 1.8 million being water-related, 2015
Win-win-WIN (For Corporations, Governments, and the World)
Reclamation results in a “win-win-WIN” platform in which governments, corporations, individuals, and the environment all benefit.
Corporations will actually turn costs into a revenue stream by reusing their waste. Taking what would otherwise be discharged (at a tremendous cost) and put back into their operational inputs.
Governments’ volume of infrastructure and treatment costs are substantially reduced – if not nearly eliminated.
More than 400,000 jobs will be preserved from improved waste and water practices along – while the new industry of reclamation will only increase that number exponentially.
Lastly, the positive impacts this revolution will have on the environment are obvious. Our planet’s most essential natural resource – water – will be protected and preserved at the highest quality and in an abundance of supply.
WEL: As a pioneer of innovation and global leader in water purification and wastewater management, WEL has developed and implemented solutions for wastewater management and water purification.
WEL (Water, Energy, Land) specializes in the engineering and construction of systems for water purification, wastewater treatment, and resource reclamation/recovery.
Our Mission is Simple:
To provide Clean Water, Eliminate Waste, Preserve Resources, and Reduce both Environmental and Industrial Costs.
Recycling Wastewater is key to solving the global water crisis while protecting the environment (as identified and reported by the United Nations) …
And this is exactly what we are doing at WEL.
As the Founder of WEL, my entire life has been sustained by one passion: a desire to make this world a better place and to create new solutions for supplying clean water to the world.
In my fifteen-year journey, I’ve found that the answer lies in reclaiming waste – creating new sources of life, resources, business, and opportunity. Turning everything from waste, pollution, and sunk costs into gold.
