While urbanization and industrialization provide more economic opportunities for many people, if planning and infrastructure are lacking or deteriorated; polluted or inadequate water resources become our biggest problem. According to a United Nations report, 80% of the world’s wastewater is returned to the ecosystem without treatment or reuse, and unfortunately 3.6 million people, of which 84% are children, die from diseases caused by contaminated water every year...

Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly di cult to nd clean water in many countries today, and the inevitable result of this uncontrollable situation is more war and migration to geographies with clean water. The effects of climate change, which leads to population growth, environmental destruction, droughts and oods are cited as the primary reasons of this situation. The best example of this issue in population growth is India. In India, most people live in cities where the population is expected to double in about 30 years. Considering that even now the country is suffering from water scarcity and, in addition, is one of the countries facing di culties in infrastructure and nancing, the pressure on municipalities responsible for increasing and improving water facilities has increased considerably.

In India without the nancial capital needed to operate sewage networks and wastewater treatment plants, most of the sludge obtained and dewatered is sent to solid waste land lls instead of being sold or used in agriculture.

As opposed to popular belief, high nancial strength is also not su cient alone against problems related to water quality and safety. Ireland, for example, is one of the ten richest countries in the world, but has been short on clean water supply and wastewater disposal systems. In addition, according to the European Environmental Agency (EEA) report published in 2018, only 38% of lakes, rivers, estuaries and coastal waters across Europe meet ecological standards. Wastewater treatment plants and the technologies used in this area are becoming critical with expectations that wastewater sludge will increase by more than 80% by 2040. The importance of reducing the amount of waste, and dewatering is increasing for the nal removal of sludge within these technologies. Briefly, the aim of dewatering and treatment is to recycle valuable raw materials in waste water or production waste formed in municipalities and industrial implementation areas, and to ensure the economic disposal of waste sludge without harming the environment.

For a more viable world, Polat Makina performs its duties and responsibilities all over the world in the best manner by making a signi cant contribution to the life cycle with its equipped technical staff and centrifugal technologies designed with environmental awareness and produced without compromising quality.
