A home-grown Welsh business, Hydro’s objective is to champion innovative thinking with a clear humanitarian purpose and transform how water is purified around the world in communities where clean drinking water is at a premium. Clean water is a limited natural resource essential for life and economic growth and many regions simply do not have enough to meet their demands. With the predicted doubling of the world’s population over the next twenty years, this problem is expected to increase. Clean drinking water and wastewater management, the safe discharge of water from industries, including mining and construction, the ability to recycle water and recover precious metals, and the on-going strengthening of environmental legislation, means that more effective and sustainable treatment technologies will be required. To meet these challenges head on, Hydro Industries’ vision is clear, namely to become a world leader in innovative electro-based technology solutions for the supply of fresh water, wastewater treatment and pollution management. The challenges faced include security of product and people when faced with supplying technology in some of the toughest working environments globally, the volatility of commodity pricing (such as aluminium and iron) and access to sustainable power sources when working in remote environments. There is also the management of legislation changes globally to meet regional requirements and therefore grow market share.
