    Special 10 - What Shall Everyone Know about Nature Based Solutions?

    Special 10 - What Shall Everyone Know about Nature Based Solutions?

    with 🎙️ Antoine Walter, Podcaster in Chief and Senior Business Development Manager @ GF Piping Systems

    💧 GF Piping Systems is the leading flow solutions provider, specializing in process automation solutions to ensure sustainable water management for life.



    It's been an amazing year on the (don't) Waste Water podcast! 



    52 awesome guests shared a wealth of knowledge on the microphone, and we covered a vast array of topics. Too much to digest in 10 minutes? No worries, I cooked you a series of syntheses to give you a sound understanding of some key topics. 



    The deal? If you like it, please share it with your friends!



    Nature-Based Solutions are by definition not a new trend, but a reconnection to what nature does best. It may sometimes convey the image of a "hippie science" but when you look closer, that's absolutely wrong!



    Nature-Based Solutions come in various sizes and flavors: Circular Economy, Biomimicry, Donut Economy, Net Positive Water... More and more we see green engineering complimenting, enhancing, and sometimes replacing grey approaches.



    Here's what you shall know about it in just 5 minutes!

    S4E10 - How to use a Costly Material to bring Membrane Treatment costs down

    S4E10 - How to use a Costly Material to bring Membrane Treatment costs down

    with 🎙️ Sebastian Andreassen, CCO, Director and Co-Founder of Cembrane 

    💧 Cembrane is the world's largest producer of Silicon Carbide (SiC) membranes for OEMs & System integrators within Water & wastewater treatment.



    What we covered: 



    🍏 How to build a Water Company from scratch in a challenging market and application 

    🍏 How to shake things up in Membrane Treatments by pushing a challenger technology 

    🌱 Where to start and how to find early adopters that dare to try new things, why they're ready to take the plunge, and how you can leverage it yourself 

    🧮 How key it is to achieve Product-Market Fit and how to do (including, how to define the right portion of the vertical you intend to serve) 

    🍏 How to sell your baby to a larger company and what it enables (for instance, doubling your production capacity and ambitioning to take a market by storm) 

    🧮 How ceramic membranes' higher flux results in a 4-1 better energetical ratio than polymeric ones 

    🔬 How you can scientifically prove your plant to work over 20 years when your oldest reference is 6 years old 

    🍏 How ceramic membranes may be easier to operate but also have their own threats, like the ceramic plates you may have at home 

    🍎 How challenging it is to introduce new technology in the water treatment industry, where risk-taking isn't exactly embraced 

    🤝🏻 How the deal with Ovivo was built over time and sounded like a natural evolution 

    🤔 How that comes with its own challenge, by somehow becoming a competitor to the existing customer base in certain geographies 

    🍏 Building a company that's here to stay, outpacing the market, taking calculated risks - and how it does not always turn well, innovation through implementation... and much more!

    🔥 ... and of course, we concluded with the 𝙧𝙖𝙥𝙞𝙙 𝙛𝙞𝙧𝙚 𝙦𝙪𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 🔥

    The deal? If you like it, please share it with your friends!



    How can Finance end up in a summary of the Water Industry? Well, it happens to be very closely linked with our failures (when finance goes missing) or success (when the right investment supports the right technology/company/cause).



    This is why understanding the basics of Water Finance is a key competence of successful Water Professionals: who are the right actors and interlocutors? What's the role of Venture Capital, Impact Investing, and Sustainable Finance? How important are ESG ratings, and what are they?



    So many questions, many more answers: that's the deal with today's 8 experts. 😀



    Unless you all tell me, enough with Water Finance, we prefer to go out blind, I can promise you this is a vertical we will keep exploring in 2022 on the podcast!

    The deal? If you like it, please share it with your friends!



    What if we looked at water infrastructure with a fresh eye? In the past, we had centralized systems that made a lot of sense, for scale reasons.



    But now that we have process automation and digitization to support our efforts, wouldn't we have better options than laying pipes in the ground and pumping water around?



    That's the idea with distributed treatments: bring water treatment closer to the point of use (and the point of "pollution"). Shorter loops, higher efficiencies, and a bright potential for water reuse (➡️ check out this deep dive to that extent )



    This short deep dive takes you through the basics of distributed treatment. I'll make sure to go deeper next year!

    S4E9 - Four Successful Exits and Counting: What's next, disrupting UV Disinfection?

    S4E9 - Four Successful Exits and Counting: What's next, disrupting UV Disinfection?

    with 🎙️ Wayne Byrne, CEO of Typhon Treatment Systems 

    💧 Typhon Treatment Systems is a company on a mission to make Water Disinfection Safe, Affordable, and Accessible without the use of Mercury.



    What we covered: 



    🍏 How Haitz's Law may predict a major shift for the UV Disinfection Market 

    🍎 How the Water Sector benefits from an exemption from the Minamata Convention and the RoHS Directive to keep using mercury even if it is forbidden since 2011 

    🍎 The 3 drawbacks of all current UV Disinfection lamps 

    🍏 ... and the 3 welcome side-effects of UV LEDs 

    🍏 How despite a 10x lower wall plug efficiency, UV LEDs start to compete with vapor-mercury lamps 

    🧮 How UVC LED usually applies to Point of Use and small scale applications and why Typhon took a different approach 

    🍏 How the fastest way to grow is to aim for moonshots and take risks 

    🍏 How UV LED also open a path for new business models like Disinfection as a Service 

    🍏 How Typhon aims to be a knife in a street fight (and what that means) 

    🧮 How the company's development may well see its next steps in the middle east - and how having Saudi Aramco on their investor board helps to that extent 

    🍏 How Wayne created, developed, and existed OxyMem by selling it to Dupont at 3x the expected market pace 

    🍏 Method Capital Limited, Solar Impulse, Agility as a Special Sauce, Starting with the End in Mind, Visualizing how success looks like... and much more!

This podcast is absolutely brilliant

this podcast is a great example of edu-tainment; i’m learning so much about the current situation with our world’s water supply, but also just genuinely enjoy listening because of the host! he’s got such a welcoming, down to the earth energy and it makes me it feel like i’m just listening to a friend talk. definitely gonna tell my friends about this, it really is such an important topic that i don’t think a lot of people think about..but i’m glad someone is leading the conversation. cheers!
