SDG 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
According to the latest United Nations report, 3.6 billion people face inadequate access to water for about one month each year. A worrisome number that is associated with additional pressures related to climate change.
The lack of water is exacerbated by the low rainfall and snowfall, thus endangering the supply of drinking water.
The well-known city-state within the Malaysian peninsula now represents for most experts a successful model among 21st century cities.
Indeed, the focus of the photograph Guindani falls precisely on how to manage more limited resources such as water in favour of a long-term vision and economic growth that benefits citizens and the community.
Through the innovative NEWater technology, which purifies wastewater using sophisticated membranes and ultraviolet lights, the city-state is able to transform the collected water into potable water suitable for private and industrial purposes.
In addition to water purification, NEWater also pays attention to energy efficiency in wastewater treatment, since this is an energy-intensive activity that contributes to greenhouse gas emissions.
