Water management is a key issue in a planet expected to be home for 9 billion people by 2050.
The PVC industry is responding with innovative solutions to global megatrends, including the growing demand for water, energy and resource efficiency amid difficult economic times. Very aware of the need to address this huge challenge, the Spanish company Molecor (www.molecor.com) has developed ground-breaking technology to produce the largest PVC-O pipe in the world.
Outstanding properties such as pressure and impact resistance, hydraulic capacity, lightness and low maintenance are available in these large diameters, suitable for main networks of fresh water distribution.
The new piping is based on hot air that saves energy during the bi-orientation process. This means less energy consumption during the manufacturing of these pipes. As explained by Ignacio Muñoz, CEO of Molecor TECH, his company has also developed a system of joints between pipes ensuring the dependability of any water network.
