Chemicals in Water Treatment – Industry Focus

Despite 71% of the Earth’s surface being covered by water and the oceans that it covers holding 96.5% of the whole planets water, only 2.5% is fresh water. Of that 2.5%, 1% is easily obtainable with most of it trapped in glaciers and snowfields.

It is this lack of usable water that makes the water treatment industry one of the biggest users of chemicals worldwide. At Airedale we deal with some of the UKs largest water companies to help them facilitate their chemical needs.
