Technological advancement is a trend ruling the world currently. One of the key drivers is artificial intelligence. It has helped businesses to improve efficiency, automate processes and make data-driven decisions. It has even enabled businesses to steer through the challenging pandemic phase. While these advancements are ruling the world, concerns around sustainability are on a rise. From reducing carbon emissions to ensuring judicious use of renewable resources, businesses are experimenting to identify ways to contribute towards sustainability goals.
The contributions of artificial intelligence towards business are well known and are being widely accepted now. The human race has also begun to acknowledge the contribution it can make to society. They have identified the scope for innovation in sustainability. Artificial Intelligence has been used by many to reach their water and energy sustainability goals. The water sector is seen as a space where AI can give a maximum contribution. The role of AI begins with predicting water usage and ensuring judicious use to enable water reusability by improving the process of water treatment.
How Can AI Help in Optimizing Water Usage?
The supply of freshwater can be forecasted through weather conditions, and droughts can be predicted through soil conditions. This can help humans to manage the water supply efficiently. AI-driven meters can also be fit in residential areas to monitor usage and predict demand. This helps to run an efficient distribution system. Water usage can be optimized at every level, such as agricultural, domestic use, and industrial. In agriculture, AI-aided irrigation systems can maintain optimum soil moisture levels. It uses soil conditions and crop data along with weather conditions to reach an optimal level. At the domestic level, smart systems have helped reduce wastage. It has been used to detect leakages in the supply system, which helps to reduce both cost and water wastage by huge margins. In industrial units, AI systems have been installed to monitor usage and enable wastewater treatment. This ensures that fresh water is used judiciously and also creates the opportunity of reusing water.

As much as it is important to monitor supply and usage, the quality of the resource is also critical. Access to clean water is a major challenge in many parts of the world. AI can be used to detect the impurities in water and suggest treatments. This is critical for both industrial as well as domestic usage. Within industries, it can affect product quality and in the case of households, poor water quality poses a threat to human health. Haber, through its AI-driven solutions, enables industries to optimize water usage. Water quality is a major concern when it is being reused. To ensure quality the treatment process plays a key role. HABER’S AI solution has helped industries in dosing chemicals and maintain several properties of water within the desired range through the treatment process.
Thus, one can see that AI has made significant contributions not only towards improving productivity but also contributed towards sustainability goals. It can improve water sustainability by managing supply, usage, and quality.
