The Water & Wastewater Industries

Water is becoming an increasingly scarce commodity as there is only a finite resource on our planet exposed to the demands of increased usage due to a rising population, urbanisation and global warming. In many countries the supply of water has become politicised with disputes between countries over dams, extraction rates and pollution.

Businesses now recognise that whilst water may be an inexpensive input cost, the efficient running of the company depends on a reliable and secure supply.

Through experience built up over thirty years ROST International Trading Limited brings substantial expertise in the industrial and municipal water and wastewater market. From technology and market assessment, sourcing of new technologies, acquisitions and disposal, ROST can offer advice and analysis to businesses in the water and wastewater sector.

In recent years there has been a move away from external financing as water tariffs are increasing faster than inflation making more room for external financiers to gain a foothold. There is also an increasing trend for technology driven solutions to water and waste treatment problems, particularly where value can be derived from either reusing, or eliminating waste. This is particularly important in areas such as sludge reduction, or deriving energy from waste and is an area where ROST has specific expertise.
