Water resources on a global scale are increasingly becoming polluted and when this occurs water becomes unsuitable for reuse unless recovered and suitably treated.
Polluted water that makes its way into the environment often results in unsafe, harmful, sometimes toxic waste that is harmful to all forms of life, our food chain and the long term impacts are usually wide spread.
Allan Lear, the Director and Innovator for Water4Use and owner of Transportable Shade Sheds in Landsborough, has been a business owner for more than twenty five years including developing successful innovation patents that underpin his well known multi award winning company.
Allan’s other experience includes mechanical engineering and design innovations within the oil and gas industry which has lead to identifying the need for waste water technologies and the huge environmental and financial cost savings that can be made around the world.
Allan believes that the research and development team he leads has created a highly effective mobile water cleaning unit using the principles of renew, recycle and reuse.
Allan said the contamination of water that you see across the globe is created from so many sources such as waste water created from agricultural fertilizer run off, mine site waste water, industrial and commercial wash downs, retention dam flooding and building site run off to name a few.
The Water4Use mobile treatment unit has since been further developed and is aimed at targeting onsite water recycling and reuse across most commercial industries.
“The massive cost, inconvenience and inefficiency of moving large volumes of waste water across the country doesn’t make sense environmentally and financially,” Allan said.
The Water4Use technology unit is currently seeking an International Patent and therefore can’t be described in detail, but in general terms the technology involves utilising filter materials in combinations and processes that are unique and truly revolutionary.
The mobile onsite filtration units will be rolled out to capitalise on the highest number of waste water reuse alternatives that meet environmental recycling guidelines.
“The Water4Use testing carried out to date shows extremely positive results that were well beyond expectations,” Allan said.
“The versatility and mobility of the 250kg, 1.5m x 1.5m Water4Use reuse mobile units means they can be containerised and sent across the globe.
“The Water4Use technology really is groundbreaking and something that I’m extremely optimistic about because it is so effective, very mobile and will change the face of waste water management for just about every industry worldwide,” Allan said.
