Singapore water crisis is gradually shedding their dependence of their water domestic needs from Malaysia when they built their latest sewage treatment plant that can produce 50 million gallons of ultra clean water daily.
Water flushed from toilets, bathrooms, kitchen and others that come from each home go to sewage tank and the domestic sewage end up into the biggest and most advanced plant that purifies domestic waste water until it is fit for human consumption.
The sewage sludge recycling and domestic waste water goes through a series of sewage processing and treatment of sewage to remove impurities, producing an end product branded as NeWater that used to be shunned by the public but now well accepted by them.
Singapore, a water resource starved island bought all their water requirements from their neighboring Malaysia. It has sometimes caused tension for both countries or a source of neighborly conflict that affects Singapore’s strategic security.
Since their eviction from the federation in 1965, they have two accords with Malaysia to buy raw water from them, one will expire and not be renewed by next year and the other will be due in 2061.
Technology has played an important role turning its once strapped water resource into a business opportunity not only being a water sufficient island but it would be the beginning to propel them to earn billion of dollars in exporting the technology as well.
