Wastewater refers to any type of water supply that has been used once before and contains waste products. It is commonly associated with municipal wastewater which is the result of mixed used water from different sources.

Wastewater is increasingly used for multiple purposes including agriculture and aquaculture in developing and industrialized countries and Irricycle has devised the technology and solutions to address the problem at hand.

With developing competition between agriculture and urban areas for high quality freshwater supplies, particularly in dry, semi-dry and densely populated regions, there is greater pressure for wastewater resources. In many cases, it is better to use wastewater or Greywater in agriculture than to use higher-quality fresh water, because crops benefit from the nutrients they contain. Thus, wastewater and Greywater can help to meet water demand and allow the preservation of high-quality water resources for drinking water supplies.
