A digital platform consolidates sensor data to produce holistic analysis and reporting on plant operations and has been deployed in treatment facilities around the world to help operators reach “net-zero carbon” water treatment. Devesh and his team are the at the forefront of creating intelligent water treatment facilities, that optimize operations to make water more sustainable, affordable, and globally accessible, to satisfy our increasing demand for fresh water.
