“Water is a precious resource. Unfortunately, global water shortages are made worse by wastefulness. More and more people live in regions facing water shortages.”

Vasile Stefu (NEVEON) Foaming Manager

Stop wasting water!

There is in fact a plentiful supply of water on earth – almost 1.4 billion cubic kilometers in total. Yet only a small portion of this is usable. This is because around 97 percent of water on earth is salt water. Yet satisfying people’s consumption needs requires enormous quantities of water. Agriculture is particularly water-intensive and consumes 70 percent of our water resources. Industry uses a further 20 percent. As a result of our wasteful use of water, about 27 percent of the world’s population currently live in regions with potentially serious water scarcity.
