Water Treatment Networks Flexible Design
Some of the impacts of climatechangescouldaffecthumanhealth,foodsecurity,waterresources,and ecosystems. Both water supply and wastewater disposal require a lot of energy. The collection, transport, and finally, treating water till be capable of using drinking purposes consume massive amounts of energy, leading toreleasinghuge amounts of carbon dioxide per annum.
