Clean Water


Listen as Ecolab Chairman and CEO Doug Baker explains the growing reality of water scarcity around the world, and the opportunities for business to conserve, reuse and recycle water

Water is integral to many of our customers’ key processes – such as cleaning and sanitizing, food processing, boiler and cooler water treatment, oil and gas extraction and processing, and pulp and paper processing. With a broad suite of technologies and expertise, we help our customers manage water through conservation, recycling and reuse.

Water Sustains Life

  • Over the past 100 years, the consumption of fresh water around the world has increased by more than 500%.
  • The United Nations estimates that by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in water-stressed areas.
  • The greatest challenge around water scarcity comes from geographic inequality – water is not always available where it is needed.
