Water Reuse. The Sustainable Synergy

  1. 1. 1 Water reuse the sustainable synergy Abengoa Agua April 2017

  3. 3. Abengoa 3 Challenges & opportunities Challenges  Water Scarcity  Climate Change Agriculture Landscape  The need has never been greater  Advancing technologies Uses for Recycled Water Reuse Opportunities  Reduce Water pollution  Increased water demand: population growth and water for industry Public Parks Cooling water for power plants and oil refineries  Improving public perception  Avoids costly import water  Usually a single source of supply Processing water for mills, plants Toilet flushingDust Control  TMLDs / Nutrient load caps  Provides local, climate- independent, sustainable supply Construction activities Concrete mixing Artificial lakes EPA website, Pacific Southwest, Region 9 Indirect Potable Water Reuse  Water Reuse byproduct valorization  Environmental cost reduction Reclaimed water as renewable water resource Water as a limiting factor for development Stringent regulations on the use of water Environmental friendly management of effluents

  5. 5. 5 Abengoa Synergies on water reuse Approach Methodology for identifying and quantifying Economic impact Goal of matching the level of treatment - GHG emissions reduction - Environmental cost, non pollutants discharge - Aquifer Yield Reductions Note: BRIICS, Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, China, South Africa; OECD, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development; ROW, rest of the world. This graph only measures “blue water” demand and does not consider rainfed agriculture. Source: OECD (2012a, fig.5,4, p.217, output from IMAGE) OECD Environmental Outlook to 2050 Global water demand (Freshwater withdrawals): Baseline Scenario 2000 and 2050 Amount of energy required to provide 1 m3 water safe for human consumption from various water sources Lake or river: 0.37 kWh/m3 Groundwater: 0.48 kWh/m3 Wastewater treatment: 0.62 – 0.87 kWh/m3 Wastewater reuse: 1.0 -2.5 kWh/m3 Seawater: 2.58 – 8.5 kWh/m3 Note: This diagram does not incorporate critical elements such as the distance the water is transported or the level of efficiency, which vary greatly from to site. Source: WBSD (2009, fig. 5 p14. based on sourced cited therein). Financial EnvironmentalSocial Livable Water reuse contributes to reduce cost: Water Reuse is not always a burden, but an economic opportunity
  6. 6. Geo-economics of water reuse GDP per capita 30,000 + 12,000 – 30,000 3,500 – 12,000 0 – 3,500 Water Stress Forecast 2025 Over 40% 40 – 20% Million m3/d Reuse BWRO or SWRO Algeria 3 Australia 1,6 2,2 China 5 3,6 Egypt 2,4 Israel 1,8 Kuwait 1,1 3,3 Mexico 2,4 Qatar 1,9 Saudi Arabia 1,2 13,2 Singapore 1 Spain 3 5 UAE 1,8 9,2 USA 10,2 7 …..Where Reuse is being applied? Developed and developing countries with water stress Middle East and North Africa North America East Asia and Pacific
  7. 7. Type of Product Rice Beef Meat Chicken Meat Tomatoes Irrigation Potable Water Tomatoes Dripping Industrial Product Water Product footprint *per kg. of product 3,900 L of water* 15,455 L of water* 3,900 L of water* 250 L of water* 10% mixing with conventional water source 80 L of water greenhouse* 80 L of water* Conventional 13% 5% 4% 1% 100% 0,1% 0,1 % Reuse 65% 26% 18% 6% 102,5% 1% 0,4 % Desalination 234% 93% 64% 23% 109,0% 3% 1,4 % Water Footprint and water source value …..Where reuse adds more value… • Modern Irrigation in countries with water stress • Industry in countries with high GDP or water stress • Potable water for countries with high GDP and water stress …? - + Added Value 7
