Europeans are estimated to use billions of cubic meters of water every year not only for civilian consumption, but also for agriculture, industrial production, heating and cooling, tourism and other service sectors. Agriculture is the sector that exerts the highest pressure on renewable freshwater resources in general, accounting for 59% of total water consumption in Europe.
In Europe, approximately 284 000 million m3 of water are withdrawn each year to meet the needs of the European economy. In 2017, a volume of about 266 billion m 3 of water was withdrawn, of which about 40% was consumed by the economy and 60% was returned to the environment with a certain level of physical or chemical alteration.
In 2017, the manufacturing sector in Europe was responsible for 10.6% of water consumption in the entire economic sector.
Given these figures, it is natural for us to ask what we can do as manufacturers of nozzles, washing heads and atomizers.
