6 Startup Water Management Technologies

Report Highlights:

Despite significant improvements to water conservation and treatment in the past few decades, water management remains a challenge in economically rich and poor countries alike.

  • Worldwide, 80% of wastewater receives no or limited treatment. This contributes to 1.8 billion people relying on faecally-contaminated water for drinking.
  • Concurrently, over ⅓ of global groundwater sources have entered a “distressed” state, meaning that their consumption exceeds their recharge and they are shrinking. Yet, up to 50% of water is lost in cities due to low quality, aging or inefficient water infrastructure.

In this Intelligence Brief, as seen in the image below, we examine 6 early stage government programs, companies and nonprofits seeking to address these challenges. 

  • The water conservation technologies covered come from Utilis, Infinite Cooling, iWesla and AgriSource Data.
  • The water treatment technologies covered are solutions from AguaClara Reach and GreenBlu.
