Facing the world's biggest challenge
Everyone should start recognizing the true cost and real value of water, our BLUE GOLD. Because, if we continue to treat our World’s waters as we do today, we will be unable to ensure a secure supply of water for future generations.
The availability of freshwater is worldwide under increasing pressure. Water is a very limited and scarce resource that all living beings rely on for basic survival. Even though 70% of the Earth’s surface is water, 0.007% of the planet’s water is available to fuel and feed its 7.5 billion inhabitants.
Freshwater is renewable only by rainfall on land, at the rate of 62.000 cubic miles per year. Due to the intensive urbanization, deforestation, water diversion and industrial farming, the earth’s surface is drying and groundwater levels are dropping.
The amount of rainfall is simply insufficient to the amount we withdraw from our earth.
FACTS & FIGURES
The United Nations expects our planet to have 9.7 billion inhabitants in the year 2050, and demand for water is expected to increase by an additional 20-30%
by 2050. This overpopulation places a major stress on our basic life-sustaining resources, of which water is our biggest challenge
THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL
Hydraloop vision - Empowering humanity for a resilient water future
Globally 80% of all wastewater goes back into the environment untreated (UNESCO 2017). All too often, water is considered to be a cheap resource - and wastewater is considered disposable. Now, this has to change. Now is the time to implement circular water management solutions and prevent our most valuable resource from being lost.
Hydraloop Systems has created first of its kind smart city solutions; compact, fit & forget, sustainable, decentralized water recycle systems with breakthrough and game-changing treatment technology. Decentralized water recycling offers to reuse greywater and is the most effective and economical alternative source of water inside the building and gives our most precious resources another loop. By recycling at the source and using water twice, we can substantially curb the increase in the growing demand in freshwater and dramatically conserve the remaining supply.
Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs)
If, in the next 30 years new construction will be equipped with decentralized water recycling systems, we can solve the world wide water shortage.
Hydraloop Systems sees it as its responsibility and is proud to contribute towards 4 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace, and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.
BRAVE BLUE WORLD
“Redefining our relationship with water”
Hydraloop is very proud - being chosen by and featuring in - the Brave Blue World documentary with its decentral water-saving solutions. The Hydraloop offers an easy home solution and empowers people to adopt new technology and innovation, so people can rethink and actively change the way they manage water themselves. The Brave Blue World documentary covers meetings with pioneers and innovators from 5 continents who are all addressing global water and sanitation challenges. Their stories reveal a hopeful and optimistic future for our most precious resource. The documentary features and has support from high-profile activists such as Matt Damon, Jaden Smith, and Liam Neeson.
The powerful Brave Blue World documentary will change people’s perception of water, using the power of storytelling to drive positive change! The documentary had its premiere in December 2019 in Hollywood and in 2020 will be showing worldwide.
