Rural Ugandan fishing villages along Lake Victoria did not have easy access to safe water. The lake is polluted from industrial waste and causes serious or deadly waterborne diseases when ingested. In 2015 the Iceland government funded a 4-year Water, Sanitation and Health (WASH) project to help the area.
Rain does not come often to the wine country in the Santa Rita Hills of south-central California. “We still talk about that one day in June 2010 when it rained,” says Peter Work, co-owner of Ampelos vineyard near Buellton in Santa Barbara County. “We have six months of the year where it doesn’t rain. It’s […]
At the Yokohama Rubber factory in Japan, an audit of their energy and water management revealed a huge potential for realising energy savings by instituting simple measures. By replacing 30-year-old pumps in the cooling system for the production process, the rubber factory has reduced their energy consumption by more than 50 per cent. This amount […]
The SQFlex family is an environmentally-friendly water supply solution. SQFlex pumps are fitted with a permanent magnet motor which enables the efficient use of energy from nature. The pump system offers the perfect water supply solution in remote areas where water is scarce and the power supply is non-existent or unreliable. The SQFlex solar panels […]
The MAGNA3 pumps make up a broad range of small, medium and large circulator pumps fitted with communication equipment and motors with electronic speed control based on permanent magnet (PM) and compact stator motor technology. The MAGNA3 is an innovative member of the Grundfos family of high-quality circulator pumps. With a MAGNA3, you can stop […]
The LIFELINK system consists of a single point water supply with a submersible borehole pump, fed with energy from solar panels. Furthermore, it is equipped with an automatic tapping unit, where the villagers tap water and pay with a closed payment system based on smartcards. The water fee covers the ongoing service contract where Grundfos […]
Energy savings start in your own house ALPHA2 from Grundfos represents a new generation of circulator pumps that use down to 5W – the A-labelled pump can save up to 10% of a household’s total power consumption. In households all over Europe the circulator pump is one of the largest individual energy consumers. The energy-optimised […]
Heating Pumps in Industrial Cleaning Applications Funded by ELFORSK The project will develop a heat pump solution for an industrial cleaning applications and the solution will be tested at Grundfos for a specific washing process. The solution is expected to lead to electricity savings of about 50 %. The project will also develop a software tool which […]
In 2014, Leif Koch, DHI, and Ramböll partnered with the Taipei Office of the Trade Council of Denmark and the Taiwan Water Corporation for a pilot project to reduce water loss in Taiwan. These organizations sent a team of leakage engineers and operators to work at a test site on Chijin Island. With the rising […]
In 2013, Leif Koch participated in a project in Rajkot, India, in collaboration with DHI and Grundfos. We worked to improve and stabilize the local water supply, as water scarcity was so extreme that Rajkot inhabitants only had running water for a few hours each day. Leif Koch provided leak detection services for the Rajkot […]
There are numerous companies located along the River Gudenå in Jutland with core competencies within climate, water technology, and environmental technology. Many are leaders of their field in Denmark and several of them also have a recognised international profile. With water as their focal point, the companies cover a wide range of competencies in: Energy […]
The global trends of urbanisation, population growth and increased welfare challenge cities all over the world. This white paper shares methods of how water utilities can improve water quality, increase resource efficiency and ensure uninterrupted service to customers.
For more than four decades, the worldwide demand for fish has increased at almost twice the rate of the growth in global population. This White Paper presents best practice examples of resource efficient sea and land-based aquaculture solutions for farming high quality seafood.
Buildings account for up to 40% of society’s energy demand and thereby play a key role in the green transition. This White Paper can be used as a tool for inspiration to spot the potential or implement building automation and energy-efficient measures in new and existing buildings globally.
In the capital region of Denmark, they listen carefully to their water distribution networks. The country’s two largest water suppliers, HOFOR (Greater Copenhagen Utility) and Novafos, have transformed parts of their water distribution networks around Copenhagen into full-scale demonstration areas with state-of-the-art technology
District Energy holds a vast potential for energy efficiency in urban areas. This White Paper highlights the key elements for success in district heating and cooling. It covers aspects from regulation and planning, efficient production of thermal energy, to storage, distribution and end user solutions.
This project demonstrates how smart cities are built on smart solutions that promote synergies between district heating, district cooling, waste water, ground water and power while benefiting the local community.
On a global scale, less than half of all wastewater is collected and less than one fifth is treated. This has led to severe environmental degradation of many inland and sea waters around the world. This white paper provides lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within wastewater treatment.
Good water management can make cities healthier places to live, resilient towards climate change and more sustainable overall. Without proper sanitation, sewerage and clean water supply, there is no liveable city. This white paper features lessons learned from different Danish stakeholders within urban water management. It is meant to serve as a tool for inspiration for creating innovative water solutions, which contribute to smarter and more liveable cities.
Energy is an important driver when ensuring a green transition – both in society, but also in the industries and production facilities across the globe. As the world’s resources are becoming increasingly scarce, companies must learn how to produce more from less – not only to limit their environmental footprint and decarbonise, but also to leverage the competitive advantages of improved production efficiency.
25-50% of all distributed water globally is lost or never invoiced due to illegal connections, inaccurate billing systems, inaccurate metering, leakages, deteriorating infrastructure and wrong water pressure management etc. – or in short Non-Revenue Water (NRW). This white paper examines how water utilities can improve efficiency and meet future demand for water by reducing Non-Revenue Water.
