Pure water midis, used to make water purifiers, is also the water used to power medical devices.
The technology is in demand around the world.
But in some parts of the world, where people rely on the water for basic needs, its use could be threatened by climate change.
“In places like India and Bangladesh, the use of water is critical,” said Anupam Thakkar, professor of water engineering at the University of New South Wales.
“Water scarcity is a real risk.”
The technology, which relies on pure water, can generate clean drinking water and can make clean water safe to drink.
It’s a key piece of technology for the water industry in India, which depends on clean water to survive.
“Water scarcity and water pollution are major challenges for the country’s water sector,” said Ravi Nair, senior water resources consultant at the World Bank.
In countries like Bangladesh, which depend on groundwater, the technology is also used to create clean drinking solutions like sanitary napkins, toilet paper and shampoo.
But in India’s drought-prone state of Bihar, it’s also the key to solving a crisis: the need to replenish drinking water.
Water is an essential element of the countrys economy.
A single liter of drinking water costs a little over $0.10.
That’s the equivalent of $7 for a family of four.
So far, India’s water crisis has caused a lot of pain.
But now, Thakar said, it could also create a lot more, because of the water shortage.
The water is used to produce about 3 million tons of fertilizers, which are used in agricultural production, and other goods.
As the population grows, the water needs of the population also increases.
Even though the world is in the midst of a water crisis, there is a lot left to save, Thacar said.
India is also a global water superpower, with some of the highest per capita water use rates in the world (as of 2012), according to the United Nations’ World Water Watch.
One of the key issues that water conservation is facing in India is that, while the country is producing more than 50 million metric tons of water a day, it is also relying on water from the sea.
And as the population increases, so does the demand for water, Thapkar said.
The world’s top five water-saving technologies include solar-powered rainwater collectors, water-based fertilizer and biofuels.
At the moment, the Indian government is looking to improve its water-efficient technology by buying more water-repellent water-purifying tablets, a solar-generated water filtration system and biofuel-producing machines.
Thakkar said India’s efforts to improve water-efficiency could eventually be copied in other parts of Africa, Asia and Latin America.
