Advanced Water Treatment


Advanced Water Treatment
Location: UAE
Category: Design and Creative


Water treatment is a improvement of making water suitable for its application or returning its natural state. Thus, water treatment required before and after its application. The required treatment depends on the application.

Water treatment involves science, engineering, business, and art. The treatment may include mechanical, physical, biological, and chemical methods. As with any technology, science is the foundation, and engineering makes sure that the technology services as designed. The appearance and application of water is an art.
