Global water demand is projected to rise by 55 percent between 2000 and 2050, cited the Global Water Forum , while nearly 1 billion people in the developing regions still has no access to clean and safe water. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, or OECD, an international agency helping economies tackle global issues, in its report stated that by 2050, people living in river basins that are underwater threat is predicted to reach 3.9 million.

Water threats or stress can be worsened by droughts, while water scarcity can affect agriculture and urban water supplies in various continents and nations. OECD’s report also paints a grim picture of the fact that urbanisation increases the world population’s lack of access to safe and clean water by 2050, causing health and environment consequences.

We all need water to survive, United Nations Secretary General Ban-Ki- Moon said in the UN’s The Hunger Project Web site that people are dying from unsafe water. Nations without access to water are also suffering, with “one in five child deaths, or 1.5 million each year are due to water-related illness.”

“More people die from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war. These deaths are an affront to our common humanity, and undermine the efforts of many countries to achieve their development potential,” Moon was quoted as saying.

The UN is working with several world economies to find solutions to improve sanitations to prevent water-related deaths and empower developing nations to have access to clean and safe water and new sanitation innovations.

One young and dynamic company that can be part of the solution is environmental and life sciences company Ecosciences Inc. (OTCQB: ECEZ) . Using bioremediation technology, Ecosciences Inc. has developed an innovative product to treat polluted water.

The company’s Eco-Logical tablets oxygenate wastewater and create an environment where billions of bacteria spores can grow and efficiently break down waste. The by-product of aerobic degradation is carbon dioxide, a non-toxic and odourless gas.

From toxins and pollution. It can be applied to wastewater systems, including sludge ponds, septic tanks, lagoons, farms, car washes, portable sanitation facilities, grease tanks, lakes and ponds.

From grease traps to the largest treatment facilities, Eco-Logical Tablets use a unique oxygen delivery system to create the optimal environment for the aerobic degradation of organic waste without the need of expensive dosing equipment or hazardous chemicals.

Bioremediation is a natural, cost-effective process and requires minimal energy compared to other new technologies. In the United States alone, environmental contamination cleanup costs at least $1 trillion, which can be reduced using this new process.

It has been proven to resolve environmental problems caused by pollutants and is now being applied to many water systems. The UN noted that it is important for governments to invest in safe water, citing that studies have shown that “for every US$1 invested, there is a projected US$3-34 gained.” While the UN has already assisted many countries to improve access to clean water, there are still nations, which don’t have access to safe water.
