Environmental regulations governing industrial pollution are being constantly tightened in developing and mature economies. As a result, direct pollution from industry into rivers, lakes and other urban water systems has dropped significantly. However, legacy pollution from industrial activities that may have ceased many years or decades ago is still causing problems in many regions, reducing the aesthetic and amenity value of many water systems.
Tackling old problems with modern technologies
A growing number of government-sponsored urban redevelopment schemes are addressing this problem. These projects focus on improving the social amenity value of water bodies that have been affected by centuries of industrial activity or long-term pollution. Municipal authorities and local residents welcome these remediation projects as reconditioned recreational facilities add considerable value to surrounding communities and ecosystems.
At Linde, we have developed a number of innovative process technologies that harness carbon dioxide, oxygen and ozone to improve water quality and enable compliance with stricter water quality standards. The successful execution of a number of high-profile, pioneering water protection projects is a tribute to both the expertise of our water protection specialists and the performance of our technologies.
