Emmanuel Macron, President of France, and his government presented a plan of 53 measures to prepare for summer 2023 and plan water management until 2030. Each economic sector will have to develop a "sobriety plan" to the use of water, as for energy, said Emmanuel Macron. He also announced a major infrastructure plan.The Parisian newspaper LePoint.fr carried out a report after its visit to the Droople headquarters in Puidoux, Switzerland, in order to discover our technological solutions in order to help companies to be more sober in their water consumption.
“The French market is crucial to us because of the water footprint of its economic fabric, and as real estate is very dense there, there is a very significant market potential, specifies CEO Ramzi Bouzerda. “We want to accelerate our entry into the territory this year with the support of Dominique Buisson, our sales manager for France.”Droople offers state-of-the-art solutions to monitor water use, thanks to artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, in order to optimize its use and reduce waste. Ramzi explains all this in this article and the video.“
By combining France's clean energy efforts and innovative solutions like Droople's water monitoring technology, we can create a more sustainable future for ourselves and for future generations. Together we can work towards a world that is less dependent on fossil fuels and uses water resources more efficiently, reducing our impact on the environment and ensuring a better quality of life for all.Innovative solutions such as those developed by (a)Droople contribute to addressing water stress. Droople has developed state-of-the-art water monitoring solutions using artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) to optimize water use and reduce waste.
Based in Switzerland, Droople has designed a unique platform for managing water assets using connected objects deployed in buildings (toilets, household appliances or water treatment systems) which enrich a database in order to to anticipate waste and unsanitary conditions. " This platform consists of hardware that connects these devices, which are currently off the radar, to measure their use, performance and better predict their maintenance," explains Ramzi Bouzerda, CEO of Droople. This improves water management, at the point of use or in the building network. »
Water stress is a significant problem worldwide, affecting both developed and developing countries. Climate change, population growth and urbanization are exacerbating the problem, leading to increased freshwater scarcity and depletion of water resources. Water asset management and water usage monitoring solutions like those developed by Droople can play a crucial role in combating this problem by providing accurate, real-time water usage data. water, leak detection and the health of assets that consume or treat water.
Thanks to connected sensors, leaks and risks of stagnation in a building are identified to protect against legionella, particularly in hospitals, nursing homes or hotels. This unique technology is also used to equip toilet flushes in airports and shopping centers by collecting data that models the crowds in common sanitary areas. Maintenance workers then intervene only when necessary and leaky toilets at night can be identified in order to avoid losses which can represent up to an Olympic swimming pool over 5 years.
Droople, which operates mainly between Europe and the United States, also collaborates with NGOs, particularly in Africa, and communities such as the city of Geneva, which aspires to better management of its public fountains. “ We also work with water treatment system manufacturers and operators,” continues Mr. Bouzerda. Carbon or sediment filters and reverse osmosis membranes are used in light industry. We will be able to improve the efficiency of these systems and thus guarantee that they provide constant water quality over time. »
A consumer industry
As French industry requires a lot of water in its factories, solutions must be found for the future. “ The French market is crucial to us because of the water footprint of its economic fabric, and as the real estate is very dense, there is a very significant market potential, specifies the CEO. We want to accelerate our entry into the territory this year with the support of Dominique Buisson, our sales manager for France. Former CEO, he is also an investor in Droople and has decided to enter this market. He is part of the team and remains convinced of our mission, our added value and the potential of Droople. »
With agro-industrial activities polluting groundwater and surface water, reprocessing water downstream risks becoming a necessity to ensure that it is drinkable and usable in domestic or commercial activities. In this sense, Mr. Bouzerda predicts that the collection of rainwater in buildings and the reuse of our gray water for toilets will be essential to preserve drinking water in the years to come. " It is this underlying trend that is committed to be able to ensure the future of humanity, because if we don't do it, we cannot stay in this current model which is not sustainable. “, he concludes. Droople is labeled by the Solar Impulse Foundation as being one of the 1000 solutions contributing to the protection of the environment and economically profitable.
