Scope

Water scarcity, energy depletion and global warming are threatening the Earth’s sustainability. Addressing the dire need to sustain life on Earth has driven innovations in the Clean and Green Environment sector. This research report presents snapshots of the top ten technologies in the Clean and Green Environment sector that are likely to impact planet Earth in 2015 and beyond. These were filtered from technologies encompassing the whole spectrum of atmospheric, land and water, as well as general environmental solutions in addressing environmental problems besieging the world. The aspects covered are technology overviews, innovators and innovation landscapes, drivers and restraints, intellectual property landscape, funding, market potential, industrial impact, megatrend impact, region-wise adoption, key partnerships, and technology roadmap. Key technologies identified are atmospheric water generation, waste-to-energy, waterless technologies, water-energy efficient technologies, solid waste upcycling, indoor air purification, reverse osmosis, air filtration, membrane distillation, and capacitive deionization.Water scarcity, energy depletion and global warming are threatening the Earth’s sustainability.

Trend Analysis for CGE Technologies: 2015

•As the industry increasingly realizes the economic impact of water, a shift from previous industrial focus on energy shortage has begun.
•Desalination remains a primary focus of water supply, but prolonged and widespread droughts have led to a deeper emphasis on water production technologies, such as atmospheric water generation, which do not need readily available water sources. Atmospheric water generation has begun to gain wider traction in non-military sectors.
•Increasing awareness of the water-energy nexus has increased the industry’s focus on water-energy efficient technologies and waterless technologies.
•Waste-to-energy and solid waste upcycling continue to dominate the solid waste management front.
•Air pollution control technologies will continue to be increasingly important, but there have been no significant new innovations.


Key Challenges

1 High energy intensity
- Most technologies are energy-intensive, which hampers their large-scale adoption in view of the rising energy crisis globally.

2 Net environmental effect
- Many technologies that are apparently environmentally friendly have counter effects at a deeper level that are not immediately obvious. For example, producing lignocellulosic biofuel can have a larger carbon footprint due to energy usage during processing and transportation.

3 Lack of funding
- New innovations often have a long incubation period or development cycle, hence funding for their initial development is usually unavailable.

4 Lag in supporting technologies
- Technologies that produce supporting components (for example, membranes, controls) for equipment based on new innovations may not be available yet.

5 End-user skepticism
- Often, the end users are not easily convinced of the new innovation’s capability; this creates a resistance against switching to a new technology.

6 Unknown effect
- The long-term effects of some technologies (such as carbon capture and storage, large-scale atmospheric water generation) remain unknown until deployed.
