Water recycling has become the issue of the new millennium,
with thousands of projects being implemented around the world.
Sydney recycles about 2.5 per cent of water, with a target of 10 per cent
by 2020. Victoria and Western Australia, which already recycle more than Sydney,
have targets of 20 per cent by 2012.
This shows the commitment of the Australian government to reduce the demand
on drinking water supplies, as well as reducing ocean outfalls, reducing demand

All over the world water has become a scarce resource that cannot be treated

Ioteq, Isan and recycling:
The Isan System allows water to be disinfected effectively without
leaving harmful biocide residues in the water.
It also offers full audit capabilities, which other systems are unable to
Isan can be controlled and monitored from anywhere in the world, offering
maintenance and service operators the ease of remote monitoring.
Iodine is also far less corrosive than other existing disinfectant biocides
such as chlorine. This, combined with the extraction of the iodine and iodine
by-products, makes Iodine and the Isan system the most ideal disinfectant
for water recycling systems.
