Our Mission

"Water is not everything - but without water there is nothing"

Eén ding is zeker: De wereld­wijde water­voor­raad is beperkt. In totaal is er onge­veer 1,38 miljard kubieke kilo­meter water op de aarde. Hoewel dit getal onme­te­lijk groot lijkt, werkt het feit dat rond 97,5% daarvan het zoute water in de oceanen is nogal rela­ti­ve­rend. Nog eens 1,72% van de wereld­wijde water­voor­raad ligt vast in glet­sjers, ijs en sneeuw. Uitein­de­lijk blijft er nog maar 1% van 1,38 miljard kubieke kilo­meter water over als drink­wa­ter­voor­raad voor de mens.

1,38 miljard km3 watervoorraden

98,28% van de wereldwijde watervoorraden zijn in vloeibare vorm beschikbaar – maar slechts een heel klein deel daarvan (0,78%) kan als drinkwater worden gebruikt.

BWT onderzoekt, ontwikkelt en werkt elke dag aan innovatieve oplossingen om zoutwater, oppervlaktewater en grondwater te veranderen in grondwater, proceswater, schoon water en gezuiverd water.

Water Innovations

BWT can offer you innovative products in the water and water treatment sector. Our main focus is on human need and, of course, the careful management of the precious resource, water. But for us, it is about more than just water. Regardless of whether it is used to drink, for swimming pools or as the purest ingredient in medicines, infusions or cosmetics, we supply water in the best possible quality available based on the requirement. And precisely where it will be used.

Magnesium Mineralized Water

Magnesium Mineralized Water is a true taste experience as well as the ideal source of your daily magnesium requirement.

It also has an almost neutral pH and contains less calcium and fewer taste-impairing substances. This not only brings out the full taste of coffee and tea, but also protects your kitchen appliances from limescale deposits.

Silky-soft BWT Pearl Water

Silky-soft water is a true beauty therapy. It contains low levels of calcium, which can remain on the skin and hair as limescale deposits, and care products can be absorbed more effectively. Silky-soft BWT Pearl Water also leaves your bathrooms and kitchens shiny, and your laundry luxuriously soft.

Again, soft water means less calcium in the water, which in turn means less limescale deposited on fixtures, tiles, glassware and cutlery and your laundry.

BWT Water for Injection

You come into contact with BWT Purified Water every day, and most of the time without realising it; for example, in cosmetics, medicines or other pharmaceutical products.

Purified water is indispensable in the manufacture of many products, where safety and purity are top priorities, and this is why manufacturers rely on purified water from BWT’s processes and systems. Ultimately to enhance your life and your quality of life.

Water­tech­no­logie

Many water treatment technologies we have developed have their origin in nature, including ion exchange and osmosis. We look and learn. We then go one step further – into the future.

A central feature of all our continuing and new developments is a reduction in resource and energy consumption and an associated reduction in CO2 emissions, and we take our responsibility in terms of ecology, cost efficiencies and social concerns very seriously. The use of state-of-the-art technologies is our starting point, and the ongoing development of our products also contributes significantly to our company’s growth.

The Future of Water

Providing water in sufficient quantity and the required quality is the global challenge of the 21st century, whether in ecological, social, political or economic terms.

Zukunft Wasser
Future of water

The world’s population is growing steadily, and more water is being consumed to produce an increasing number of consumer goods. The existing, already scarce, sources of drinking water are becoming increasingly polluted and, last but not least, the consequences of climate change make water a commodity that is becoming more difficult to access.

Global challenges

According to UN forecasts, the world’s population will grow to 9.6 billion in 2050. Today, half of humanity lives in cities, rising to two-thirds by 2050. The largest increase is in developing countries, where water scarcity is already a reality.

Population growth
Door de toenemende behoefte aan voedsel, energie en sanitaire voorzieningen zal ook de wereldwijde waterbehoefte tot 2050 stijgen met 55%. De grootste stij­gingen zullen binnen de indu­strie (plus 400%), de elek­tri­ci­teits­pro­ductie (plus 140%) en de huis­hou­dens (plus 130%) plaats­vinden. Het verbruik binnen de agra­ri­sche sector, waar op dit moment het meest water wordt verbruikt, zal daar­en­tegen iets afnemen.
Global demand for water
Global demand for water

Approximately a quarter of the world’s water needs are currently met by groundwater. However, the steady decline in the groundwater supply means that in 2050 over 40% of the world’s population will live in areas where water is scarce.

Water – our Mission

BWT is facing all these challenges as a global company. Our mission is to develop resource-conserving, sustainable products and services that treat existing water to supply it in the best possible quality. We also make existing water resources accessible where the water is required. Our professional water treatment turns contaminated water into high-quality drinking water, process water or even purified water, depending on the need.
