  • Groundwater footprint reveals unsustainable water consumption

    Reservoirs of water stored under the earth’s surface, otherwise known as groundwater, are a valuable resource. However, using a footprinting method, a new global study has indicated that about 1.7 billion people live in areas where groundwater is being used more quickly than it can be replenished. Groundwater supplies water to billions of people and is important for agricultural ...

  • Weda keeps things clean in Germany’s tropical waters

    The ideal conditions for any pool-cleaning machine is a square-sided pool that is closed for the night. Tropical Island in Germany is exactly the opposite: a recreation centre that is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and a pool with soft shorelines and even some islands! But Weda’s machines have been working hard there every day of the past five years, and they have been doing a great ...
