Urbanization or the rapid population growth in cities in both developed and developing regions is a major challenge for cities based in areas with limited access to natural water resources. As a result, many local governments have had to invest in desalination and water reuse plants. This combined with poor water quality in developing countries and aging infrastructure in developed ones has fueled the demand for residential water treatment systems.
Moving beyond decentralized systems, LWS is developing a roof mounted NESMD system for large multi-unit residential buildings and apartments. Additionally, the company is developing a smaller home-based unit which could be run separately or in conjunction with a home’s solar power system.
Separately, the Waterkeys® platform provides for an avenue into the smart home segment.
