The need of a global approach to its use is evident, particularly in areas of Spain that deal with growing water scarcity.
A good means to reduce its indiscriminate use consists in resorting to water resources recovery, minimising the side effects that the over-exploitation and population growth in urban areas represent for the consumption of drinking water and the increase in the generation of wastewater, as well as taking action in rural areas, restoring polluted water from springs, ponds and wells through an efficient water disinfection system which makes it fit for human consumption.
In accurately designing these means, it is essential to have an efficient weapon for water disinfection in order to make it drinkable and/or to restore residual water for other uses (irrigation, recreational and ornamental uses etc.).
Ozone, a powerful disinfectant, stands out as an efficient weapon in water treatment, both in the last steps of water purification and in the recovery of residual water, as it is also capable of decomposing lots of harmful chemical compounds.
Moreover, ozone is an excellent ally in the industry, since its usage presupposes important water savings and a substantial improvement of spring water.
Access to water is acknowledged by the UN as an economic, social and cultural right, and supplying the best possible water quality to the world population is one of the main requests of the most advanced societies.
Furthermore, nowadays, natural filters do not have the capacity to eliminate all of the pollutants contained by anthropogenic-originated springs.
Ozone helps to reduce indiscriminate water consumption, intervening in:
Water Purification, Recycling, residual water Recovery, by disinfecting it and eliminating chemical compounds which are harmful to the health and to the environment, due to its great oxidising power.
