Counteracting the environmental impact
A substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is necessary to prevent global warming and protect the planet for this and future generations. At the same time, demand for fresh water is increasing, with demand exceeding the latent supply in many regions across the globe, with desalination an increasingly urgent priority.
Future Environmental Technologies Group develops green technologies for greenhouse gas remediation, desalination and industrial waste effluence that deliver a flexible, cost-effective and straight forward means of counteracting environmental impact and the challenges of the natural environment.
In November 2010, the EU implemented new legislation in the form of a Directive on Industrial Emissions, in order to bring down industrial emissions from large combustion plants.
In addition to delivering long-term health benefits for EU citizens, the new rules are also designed to drive significant savings through the reduction of administrative burden and provide a more level playing field for industry.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) has highlighted a need to intensify global efforts ahead of the next UN summit in Durban in December 2011.
Water demand in many countries globally is set to exceed supply by 40% within 20 years due to the combined threat of climate change and population growth, according to a warning issued by experts speaking at an international meeting in Ottawa hosted by the Canadian Water Network (CWN) in the run-up to U.S. World Water Day on 22 March 2011.
