"Water Apocalypse" may come in as an exaggerated stretch; I'm sorry. Yet if you want a number to understand the magnitude of what we're discussing here: fixing America's water challenges is estimated at... $1 trillion. So, what makes for this Water Crisis in America? This is the consequence of decades of flawed water management along four main lines.  Broken infrastructure starts showing with nearly 15% of US citizens served with water that recently breached the Safe Water Act. When they get served at all, as 2.2 million Americans don't get any water services.  Water economics are in dangerous imbalance. The combined effects of the "wrong pockets problem" and recurrent underinvestment place an entire section of the Water Sector in a perilous situation.  Policies move and adapt slower than the changing world we live in. And even when they tend to evolve, enforcement is an entirely new problem.  Beyond policies, an entire sector struggles to embrace change - when it inevitably will have to. ▶️ Watch the video version of this episode on YouTube  ▶️ Check out my full article on the American Water Apocalypse

Henry Cordes is Principal at Sciens Water. Sciens is a research-driven investment fund that identifies uncovered, under-researched, or misunderstood water sector opportunities that are undercapitalized. I could say a lot about the pre-conceptions out there on the involvement of private capital in the Water Sector. I've already told several times the story of when a group of university professors named me the devil's right hand for explaining during a conference how private capital could help solve some of our water challenges. But this time, I'll play it slightly differently, I'll pass on the microphone to a student I met at the Columbia Water Center in New York. I think it sums it all. I've often been very quick to dismiss the role of the private sector. I've often been led to believe that the privatization of water is inherently and unequivocally harmful. It is going to limit access. It is gonna make water more expensive. It's unjustifiable. But listening to the harsh realities of the water sector or water infrastructure is extremely underfunded in the United States. And one way to overcome it, like very pragmatically and feasibly, is by privatizing elements of it. And I think that was a hard pill to swallow because it's acknowledging that what I've been told in class might be wrong. but it's also accepting there is no either or, and the public sector isn't inherently pitted against the private sector, rather for water problems to be kind of find a resolution. This collaboration is so critical. Indeed, we shall maybe stop opposing public and private money, something Gaetane Suzenet already shared on that microphone, and rather focus on what each of both has to offer. That is what Henry will strive to do today, so I'll leave him the floor. But right before I'll do that, remember that if you like what you hear, please take this episode and share it with a colleague, a friend, or your LinkedIn network! That's the best way to support me, and I'd be grateful if you took a minute of your time to do it. Can I count on you? I'm sure I can, let's meet on the other side!

Seeing the Sharks or the Dragons in Shark Tank or Dragon Den decide on which company to invest just out of gut feeling and business intuition is fascinating. Indeed, it's thus fascinating that the show is an international hit in almost all its variations. But do things really happen like that in real life? I honestly doubt it. Sure, if you recall my conversation with Reinhard Hübner on that microphone, he told us a couple stories on how he gets spontaneous pitches that are sometimes so off, that his gut feeling is sufficient to turn down the investment opportunity. Yet, in all other cases, you'll need more than just gut feeling and intuition. That's why what Meshal is sharing today is very interesting: at Sciens Water, he's in charge of bringing this informed view of the market that builds the rationale for the investment fund to actually bet or not on a technology and or a company.  And as he explains, his approach is not very different from an entrepreneur's one. He gathers data around a topic, builds some hypotheses and then gets actually out in the market to prove these hypotheses right or wrong.  As you'll hear, what's actually outstanding in his experience sharing, is his honesty to explain how his gut feeling is actually often proven wrong. Data wins over intuition. And actual buying and using behavior trumps all other tells. So without further due, let me leave him the floor, but not without reminding you that if you like what you hear, please share the word around you: take that episode and share with a colleague, a friend or a Shark Tank fan.

Upmanu Lal is the Director of the Columbia Water Center at Columbia University in New York. The Columbia Water Center is on a mission to creatively tackle the water challenges of a rapidly changing world where water and climate interact with food, energy, ecosystems, and urbanization. Over the past two years, governments around the World have announced unusual water infrastructure investments, with, for instance, 111 billion dollars in the Infrastructure act in the US.  All of that triggered a sizeable 3 to 4% yearly increase in investments in that sub-segment of the Water Sector. But there's a cooler kid in town: decentralized or distributed water treatments grow at three times that pace. Let me repeat that. We see unprecedented investments in centralized infrastructure, and yet, investments in their decentralized counterpart grow three times faster!  That honestly gets you thinking. Does the centralized push arrive too late? You'll hear me asking that to Upmanu in even straighter terms in just a minute when I'm asking if we're pushing a dead beast.  I think the question is worth asking when you hear Upmanu deconstruct why these radically decentralized water treatments trump central infrastructure on nearly every level.  We might well enter the post-utility era or at least an age that's thus far from the model we imagined at the turn of the 19th century or in the sewers of Babylonia 5'000 years ago, that water and wastewater utilities will have to seriously reinvent themselves. And as we've already discussed with Seth Siegel on that microphone, I see good and bad in that new normal. Now, if you ask me, I'd rather advocate for a slightly lighter disruption as the one Upmanu described, where decentralized treatments still happen at community or building level rather than under every sink. But that's just my two cents, and I'm pretty sure I never got a scientific citation when Upmanu draws on almost 18'000 for his extensive work on the topic - kind of the definition of an expert, right? So without further due, I'll let you dive into the nuggets he shares with us. Well, wait, without further due, yes, but not without reminding you that if you like what you hear, you can make some of your friends, colleagues, or LinkedIn contacts the best Christmas present there is by sharing and recommending them this episode. If you wonder how I attract someone the caliber of Upmanu on my microphone, well, it's a one-stop trick: it's thanks to these recommendations. You have that power; I'm so grateful when you use it!

Lauren Enright is the Founder of Axiom Climate, and Michael Stanley Gallisdorfer is a Water Sustainability Strategist you've already heard on that microphone by the excellent Episode 17 of Season 2. Together with Indrani Pal, Lauren and Michael will lead a Session Day at the upcoming American Geophysical Union Meeting in Chicago titled "Adapting to Climate Change: Innovative Solutions for Building Water Resilience to Long-term Meteorological & Hydrological Change." If you've followed the series of COP Conferences that aim to take on Climate Change challenges, you've probably noticed a difference between the latest COP 27 and the previous 26. So far, we mostly talked about climate change mitigation - and hence, it was much of a carbon topic. COP 27 happened to be different: for the first time, the focus was on climate change adaptation. And in that new realm, much of the focus is switching to water. Why so? Well, because climate change is increasing variability in the water cycle, thus causing extreme weather events, lowering the predictability of water availability, decreasing water quality, and threatening sustainable development, biodiversity, or simply the enjoyment of the human rights to safe drinking water and sanitation worldwide - for the ones that are blessed with it.  Those would be just some of the consequences, but in a nutshell, we can say: climate change will be felt through water. So what do we do about it? That's where climate change adaptation kicks in. We don't have to reinvent the wheel; we just - between quotation marks - have to implement existing technology and fast-track the path to market for the right innovations. It's not because we start deploying climate change adaptation that we accept our fate and stop with the mitigation efforts; both can and should work hand in hand. But if we accept that, by now, a good chunk of the effects of climate change can't be reversed for a long time, we better leverage our water knowledge to limit how much it will affect populations across the globe. That is Lauren, Michael, and Indrani's proposal to the World: kickstarting actionable innovative solutions for the World to start adapting and protecting every crew member of spaceship earth. If you like what you hear today, you'll probably enjoy their session at the American Geophysical Union Meeting in Chicago as they schedule an entire day on Friday to light the climate change adaptation topic with fresh angles and new approaches.  And for today's conversation, if you feel more people shall hear it, you have that power: share it with a friend, a colleague, or your LinkedIn network!

Josiah Cox is the founder and president of Central States Water Resources. Central States Water Resources transforms how water utilities work by acquiring small, often non-compliant systems and then using expertise, technology, and innovation to quickly assess and turn them into reliable infrastructure. I bet you've never heard of Central States Water Resources. Please don't get offended; I had never heard of the company either before my interview with Alex Loucopoulos on that microphone a bit over a year ago. I did a little Google Trend exercise before recording: I've compared the occurrences of "American Water" and "Central States Water Resources" in search terms, and AW wins by a 99 to 1 score. Now, I hear you rolling your eyes and telling me it's an absolutely unfair and non-sense comparison, and you're widely right. Yet, last year, Central States Water Resources completed 40% of the recorded M&A moves in water and wastewater utilities in the US. Over less than a decade of existence, the company has been closing over 80 moves a year on average - which is far more than any other water or wastewater utility company in America.  So why does it fly under the radar? Well, simply because all of these systems are small, located in the states that rarely make the news, and aim to better the lives of communities, we all simply ignored they were such distressed about water.  There's a major difference, though, with the projects we discussed last week with Sean Davis. CSWR isn't a charity or philanthropy. It's a private company backed by Sciens Water, and aiming to turn these non-compliant water systems not only into better, safe, and reliable services but also to make them profitable. If you recall my discussions with Seth Siegel and Trace Blackmore some weeks ago, 85% of American utilities have three or fewer employees. This means they lack the critical scale to apply best practices, embrace innovations and new technologies and are at high risk with the upcoming silver wave. So in a sense, Central States Water Resources is the typical portrait of a distributed water utility that may become the norm in the very near future. I'm carefully using "distributed" and not "decentralized" because you'll see that Josiah firmly refuses the decentralized concept - I'll let him explain why. In this week's exploration, I'm scratching the surface of something that could become a major trend, and not only in the US, when you think of Germany's 10'000 utilities or Switzerland's 700 wastewater treatment plants, to just name the two first examples that crossed my mind.  If that's a topic of interest for you, let me know, and I'll make sure to dive deeper anytime soon! How can you express your interest? Well, you know the maxim I keep repeating week after week: if you like what you hear, share it with a friend, a colleague, or simply your LinkedIn network.

Sean Davis is the founder and managing director of Merton Capital Partners, an adjunct professor at Palm Beach Atlantic University, and the Author of "Solving the Giving Pledge Bottleneck." Merton Capital Partners develops innovative investment strategies to unlock philanthropy's potential by incentivizing corporations to generate large-scale good in their core businesses. What the heck is the link between philanthropy and water? That may be very obscure if you're like me before meeting Sean. Yet you'll see that it will make a lot of sense in just twenty minutes.  I've often discussed with brilliant minds on that microphone how people without safe water or cities without wastewater treatment made little economic sense. We've talked about wrong pockets issues and highlighted all the reasons why we thought something could be done.  Yet, I was long seeking the spark that could ignite the revolution, and I fear that I'm not the only one. In their "Worth of Water" book, Gary White and Matt Damon say nothing else: they have a proven path to scale to solve the water challenges within two decades, but they lack the seed money to get the ball rolling.  Sure, we could all wait for states to walk the talk. But if we're still discussing SDG 6 or aging infrastructure at the end of 2022 in pessimistic or alarming terms, it's probably a sign that we should not have too high hopes from that path.  So what's left? Tears and sighs? Well, that's where the new path Sean introduces today brings a bright new hope. Philanthropic money doesn't have to be spent at a loss - and there are significant pockets of investments that look for the right vehicles.  This is how in a minute, we'll discuss evergreen investment strategies, blended capital, helping philanthropists to get the highest bang for their buck, and much more. My conversation with Sean made me think of many new ways to connect the Water dots, so I'm pretty sure it might do the same for you!

Tom Rooney is Chairman and Operating Partner at Sciens Water. Sciens is a research-driven investment fund that identifies uncovered, under-researched, or misunderstood water sector opportunities that are undercapitalized. I cannot name one of my about 120 guests so far that would not have taught me something during our conversation. If you've been listening to this podcast for a while, you know how intentional I am about connecting the dots. Every single new episode hence has to bring us one step closer to the "Truth" with a big "T" - given that this Truth is a moving target and doesn't really exist. Yet, every once in a while, I collect a nugget that really shines a new light on what I thought I knew. It could be Paul O'Callaghan's take on the dynamics of Water Innovation by Season 3, Episode 3. Or Reinhard Hübner's water company M&A masterclass by Season 5, Episode 1. Or Piers Clark's debunking of the water pilot's myth by the first episode of this Season 7, to only name three. Well, Tom's adaptation of Maslow's theories to the Water field clearly belongs to this category, as all of a sudden, it explains a lot of the undervaluation of water we experience every day.  What is it? Well, I won't butcher the concept and let Tom explain in a minute. You'll probably enjoy as well how clear and explicit he is about the one challenge that's the root of all the other ones, and I'd bet you'll have as much fun as me listening to that conversation. If that's the case, all I ask is that you take this episode and share it with a colleague, a friend, or your LinkedIn network! That's the best way to support me, and I'd be grateful if you took a minute of your time to do it. Can I count on you? I'm sure I can, let's meet on the other side! How does Maslow explain a lot of America's Broken Water Economics?

Vermont has the most breweries per capita. But the more beer they brew, the more they have to deal with their wastewater. Caleb Henderson of Winooski asked us this: “Breweries and cideries were in the news a few years ago for the wastewater. How are they mitigating their waste now? Has it improved?”Reporter Howard Weiss-Tisman learns how breweries — and communities — are grappling with this issue in different ways. And in many respects, Vermont is ahead of the curve. To see photos from Howard's reporting and find a transcript of this episode, check out our web feature.Howard Weiss-Tisman reported this episode, and Angela Evancie produced it, with research and studio help from Mae Nagusky.

[Extract] "That will translate into all sorts of financial KPIs but that's NOT the driver!" - Mirka Wilderer - De Nora Water Technologies

Mirka Wilderer is the CEO of De Nora Water Technologies. De Nora is a leading provider of equipment, systems, disinfection, and filtration solutions for water and wastewater treatment. Back in my years as a sales engineer, I used to map the competitors' landscape when working on large projects. And in my quite specialized world of advanced wastewater treatments, I was very good at predictions, or that's what I thought. One day, on a very large project, I was discussing with the design office, and they had curious Ideas as to how to shape their process. I couldn't recognize any of the patterns; the usual suspects would have left! The reason would reveal some weeks later: there was a new kid on the block, De Nora Water Technologies. If you recall my discussion on that microphone with Reinhard Hübner, we've already seen examples of companies rapidly built from the bottom up in our otherwise conservative sector. But DeNora is again another breed than SKion Water. The water division was created in 2015 from an M&A move involving Severn Trent Services. And since then, the company has followed quite an aggressive track, through internal and external moves, with a double-digit growth that led to a successful initial public offering on the Milano stock exchange last summer.  It's been a while that I wanted to address this trajectory on the podcast, and I had already approached Mirka for this around the BlueTech forum last year in Vancouver, but with the IPO on the horizon, the timing wasn't right.  So when our paths crossed again during Sciens Water's Rethinking Water conference in New York, I couldn't let the opportunity slip away to get some valuable insight on how to successfully go public, keep and develop a hunter mindset, or grow into a fully different area as a before quite traditional family business.  As for Patrick Dekker last week, I was a bit short on time to go into the level of depth I would have liked to. But you'll see that Mirka goes straight to the point and probably delivers a new record in insights per minute on that microphone!  So without further due, I'll let you dive into our conversation. Just remember that if you like what you hear, please take that episode and share it with a colleague, a friend, or your LinkedIn network! Come one, do it, and I'll meet you on the other side!

Henrik Hagemann is the CEO and co-founder of Puraffinity. Puraffinity is a GreenTech Company that designs smart materials for environmental applications. As you may have discovered by Season 4, Episode 1, they strive to solve the daunting PFAS / Forever chemicals challenge we face. We all have PFAS in our blood, and this for quite a simple reason: forever chemicals are everywhere around us. For the better and, let's face it, often the worse, we use PFAS in so many parts of our daily lives that it would be almost impossible to ban them.  This wouldn't be much of a problem if they weren't that toxic: I know, thank you, captain obvious.  Yet, PFAS also confronts the Water Sector with a complex equation to solve. On the one hand, we'd like to protect everyone from toxic substances, and with the advancement of technology, we can, but on the other hand, doing so is still prohibitively expensive today if we were to do it on a large scale.  Sure, promising new ways might change the name of the game; we've, for instance, discussed on that microphone how supercritical water oxidation could eliminate PFAS and everything else theoretically in an even energy-positive fashion. But we're still far from the large scale today. Let's pause here for a second and apply some advice we heard here a while ago from Claudia Winkler and Alice Schmidt: let's zoom out before we zoom in. We need PFAS in so many of the products we use, so we produce PFAS. And then, we realize more and more how dangerous they are, so we destroy PFAS. And the cycle goes on. Don't you think there may be a better way? Well, that's what we'll explore today with Henrik. And he'll do that much better than me, so I won't spoil you with what he explains so well! I'll let you buckle up for a fascinating 360-degree update on PFAS, where we discuss regulations, recycling, new treatments and their limits, perspectives, and even Erin Brockovich! And remember, if you like what you hear, please share that episode around you. Send it to a friend, a colleague, or your LinkedIn network; come one, do it, and I'll meet you on the other side!
