All of which means an increased need for filtration and separation technology. Digital technology has been improving for decades and trends call for this to continue. As computer circuits have grown smaller and smaller while increasing in processing power, the need for filtration and separa- tion technologies has grown and become increasingly more sophisticated. Rapid urbanization on a global scale will require new and improved infrastructure, including water, power, communications and transportation; all of which require filtration. Natural resource scarcity and climate change will make it increasingly difficult to supply an ever growing population with clean water. This will drive greater use of desalina- tion technologies, and recycle and reuse of wastewater on a consumer, commercial and industrial scale, which will become the norm. Filtration and separation technology make all these processes possible. Transformative advances in healthcare will allow people to live longer, healthier and more productive lives. A part of this process will be advances in diagnostic and drug therapies, which utilize filtration and sepa- ration technologies, and an increased focus on a cleaner environment and all natural and pure consumables, which utilize filtration and separation rather than chemical tech- nologies to make products safe and pure. The race to zero emissions and zero dis- charge for industrial manufacturing, public utilities, automotive and aerospace will be a technology challenge on many fronts. Filtration and separation are among the major enabling technologies for this purify, recycle and reuse process.
