  • Access to safe drinking water and sanitation is a basic necessity. However, such access is highly variable around the world and in particular in Africa, Asia and South America. Much progress still remains to be made in infrastructure improvements and poverty reduction. A recent World Bank report, for example, noted that more than 100 million people in the Latin American region alone lack access to potable water and adequate sanitation systems. Compounding the issue of water availability is contamination of water supplies and the lack of wastewater treatment facilities.

These include charging/discharging of reactants and solvents, inertisation, reactions, crystallisations, phase separations, filtrations, distillation, product washing. In many cases cooling, heating, or the application of vacuum or pressure is necessary. The unavoidable waste streams are treated in recovery/abatement systems or disposed of as waste.

  • The Mekong River is one of the few great, largely unregulated rivers of the world. Its Delta is both agriculturally and aquatically highly productive and a major contributor to the region’s food production and export earnings. Water and land issues of the Delta must be considered as integral with those of the Mekong Basin as a whole. A majority of the Mekong Basin’s 60 million, ethnically diverse peoples rely on the River’s aquatic resources and rice production for their subsistence. For many, 40 to 60% of their protein intake is from fish from the Mekong.

In 1985, the Mekong River Commission (MRC) established the Water Quality Monitoring Network (WQMN) to provide an ongoing record of the water quality of the river, its major tributaries, and the Mekong Delta.
