We monitor the Market Pulse (and share it with you weekly!)
There are two sides to our water industry. Sure, we're quite conservative on one end. But water is a never-ending field for innovation!
This means, there's always a "new thing".
So, when will you learn about it? If this happens when your competitors integrate that said new thing in their offering, that's probably too late... But of course, it's always a remarkable experience to learn things "the hard way". 😄
To preserve you from this pain, we strive every week to run your market intelligence (for free).
And we share it with the community in our water podcast!
Why a Water Podcast?
Simply because our lives are busy! In "normal" times with travels. And in "special" times with some restrictions...
And where do you compromise, when you have to fit a tight agenda? Often in the worst possible place: you reduce your personal time allowance. These moments where, you can learn, evolve and improve.
Win back your time: switch to a water podcast! Be it ours or any other (there are some good ones!), podcasts have your back anywhere.
Doing the dishes? Mowing the lawn? Out for a split-running session? Sitting on the bus?
Give your brain some food for thought, and tune in. We'll ensure, you'll shine on your next all-hands meeting, customer interview, or family dinner.

Thanks to the transparency of our awesome guests, we hear from many pitfalls and truths they learned the hard way.

It might be tempting to do things "as you've always done".
Yet, our guest's experience shows, the state of the art is always evolving in the water industry.
Discover potentially better ways of addressing process issues, with our wide panel. Former guests range from water majors (SUEZ, Veolia...) to SMEs (Lenntech, LiqTech, Fluence...) through Start-Ups (Kando, Aquassay, Cambrian Innovation...).

Water & Wastewater 101
Our industry might be confusing at first sight! Don't worry, we've all been there (...and still regularly are 😉).
You'll find here some key definitions, cornerstones, and directions to guide you on your water and wastewater journey!
The timelines of Water and Wastewater Management started around the same milestones, with the first large civilizations.
Around 3'500 BC, the first evidence is found of Water & Wastewater Management in the Mesopotamian Empire.
The Romans would then be the first to provide a full circle integrated water cycle management.
And then... nothing!
With the collapse of the Roman Empire, everything that the Mesopotamians, the Indus, the Greeks, or the Romans had brought to human wellbeing kind of vanished.
Water would recover, gradually. But for wastewater... the dark age would last over a millennial!
Dive into the depth of that story here, to answer this simple question: how long do Wastewater Treatment Plants exist?
