The constant increase in industrialization and infrastructure construction poses significant challenges in reducing sludge and industrial waste, treating pollutants, and providing cost-effective treatment, transportation and landfilling solutions.
Areas designated for landfills are limited, and it is necessary to significantly optimize water separation to a quality level allowing reuse for agricultural purposes or other processes. The required solutions must be mobile, automated and economically efficient.
According to data published by MarketWatch in April 2021 discussing forecast and trends towards 2025, the food and beverage industry is considered the main challenge.
The treatment and technological solutions required to reduce sludge and industrial waste generated by the global food and beverage industry have reached a volume of close to $ 1 billion in 2018 and are expected to grow at 5% per year until 2025.
Other industries globally facing the challenge of reducing sludge and waste are the paint and coatings industry, chemicals and paper, oil and gas, the metal processing industry and the automotive industry.
Of all industrial sludge reduction processes, dewatering is the most significant and is expected to grow exponentially until 2025, as it is relevant to almost all areas of the industry.
