Innovative, energy-efficient technology is key to reducing emissions for the marine industry in support of the net-zero agenda in the Middle East

The Middle East is blessed with abundant marine biodiversity, natural ecosystems and a strategically advantageous geopolitical position. Nations have grown exponentially because of marine and seaborne trade with economies thriving from trade, fishing, leisure and tourism throughout the Red Sea, East Africa and the Indian subcontinent. Both governments and businesses across the aforementioned sectors have exciting visions to capitalise on this legacy. As the maritime industry pursues bold sustainability targets, business collaboration with forward-thinking governments will be key to ensure best practices are shared. There is an undoubted urgent need for action as international shipping emits 2-3 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, transporting close to 80 percent of global trade by

Water Treatment Equipment Market

Water Treatment Equipment Market Trends Growth Overview: Water treatment is conceded out to reduce the total suspended solids (TSS) levels as per the end-user condition and therefore vary depending on the elements such as total suspended solids level, application, and location. Elimination of suspended solids and bacteria is done by separating the physical, chemical, and biological things of water and its components. Water treatment equipment is selected based on the properties of components such as quantity, density, chemical reactivity, solubility, boiling point, volatility, melting point, water purity levels, and other related. This was owing to the growing consumption of water, strict government rules about the total suspended solids (TSS) level, and increasing industrialization
