Buyers of bio-fertilizers, renewable energy, treated water, sand, polymers and/or other wastewater by-or recovered products
Compliance, norms & impact investments
Products in effluents that enrich water, add value and enable efficient circular economy
Sellers of wastewater by-or recovered products, biorefineries, clean technologies
Consumers willing goods and/or services at competitive price that embed inputs from transformed wastewater to fight pollution, to increase sanitation & to reduce interconnected risks
Transforming wastewater into energy, fertilisers, clean water, bio-cements …etc… reduces drastically the production costs and risks.
A biorefinery uses raw materials for the sustainable generation of products while ensuring the minimisation of waste products.
UNEP/United Nations Habitat wastewater definition
Treated domestic effluent consisting of black water (excreta, urine and faecal sludge) and greywater (kitchen and bathing wastewater), water from commercial establishments and institutions, including hospitals; industrial effluent, stormwater and other urban run-off; agricultural, horticultural and aquaculture effluent.
About 80% of wastewater remains untreated today (source: United Nations); the balance (approximately 20%) of wastewater are often treated without efficiency. This situation is a weapon of mass destruction and costs USD trillions in climate changes and other consequences.
The Wastewater Exchange is matching offers and demands of wastewater by-and recovered products such as clean water, renewable energy, treated water, bio-fertilisers, bio-cements, polymers, detergents, disinfectants with supplies of wastewater. This leads to value wastewater as a resource that everybody has.
Anticipated revenues from wastewater suppliers or from other activities can be matched with anticipated sales of wastewater by-products to correlate and to allocate trade finance with wastewater infrastructures finance.
