Water-Stocks.com, CLX, ITT, HDRX, SI

According to Global Water Intelligence, an English publication, worldwide annual industry revenues are estimated at $420 billion, with the U.S. accounting for around $100 billion. This number is expected to grow as water becomes scarcer, and markets begin to mature. Two of the fastest growing segments are point of use/point of entry (POU/POE) systems and wastewater treatment.

Using Membrane Systems for POE Disinfection & Clarification

Until recently, using membranes for whole-house residential clarification and disinfection had not been an option for water treatment dealers. Technical advances made by Zenon Environmental in hollow fiber membrane technology for its large-scale municipal and industrial plants have changed this. Membranes are now being used in the company’s Homespring point-of-entry (POE) systems, providing a cost- effective solution for the removal of turbidity and pathogens, and delivering clear, biologically safe water.

POU/POE Implementation Study for Arsenic Proves Feasibility

Source: 
Water Quality Assn.

A joint study by AWWARF (American Water Works Association Research Foundation) and the U.S. EPA, POU/POE Implementation feasibility study for arsenic treatment, shows that the use of POU/POE solutions for arsenic removal is both efficacious and cost-effective.

The looming deadline for municipal systems to ensure an arsenic MCL (maximum contaminant level) of less than 10 ppb is a difficult--if not financially impossible--target for small systems across the US.
