As other industrial sectors, the water industry is accelerating its adoption of digital tools, and developing new offers and services to its customers leveraging the “power of the Internet of Things” (IoT or IIoT). The presentation will give some general background, some insights and current examples of the type of offers being developed. Focusing specifically on filtration, the second part of the presentation will cover some of the needs, challenges and opportunities for the value chain: from media producers and cartridge and equipment producers, to system integrators and then service providers, to accelerate the development and adoption of a new generation of “smart filters”. Possible features and important considerations will be discussed in light of current recent projects at Veolia.
