KaarbonTech have been given the opportunity to present at the Future Water Networks on the 7th of November. We will be explaining to them the benefits Sewer SMART can bring to their networks by introducing risk-based maintenance regimes.
We have already demonstrated across the country how effective our solutions can be. Walsall Council is a prime example where we turned around the sewer cleaning regime from a reactive to a proactive cleaning cycle. The numbers speak for themselves as productivity improvements saw the inspections go from an average of 55 per day up to 130.
The KaarbonTech approach is that collecting data is only the first stage – it is the ability to analyse and report on the data that ultimately improves performance.Mark Harriman

Flooding Prevention Knowsley
Whiston Lane in Knowsley had been subject to a major flood event in December 2017 caused by intense/prolonged rainfall.
KaarbonTech, in conjunction with Tarmac, supplied and installed sewer Sensors and Culvert Sensors in Knowsley.
The water level information from the sensors ensured that when a further severe weather event in June 2019 occurred, the event was successfully managed proactively.
Having all this data to hand is incredible. KaarbonTech set the alarms on the sewer sensors and the culvert to actually ring us when levels were getting dangerously high. This wasn’t a standard solution but KaarbonTech worked tirelessly to give us what we needed to prevent further flooding in the areaDarren Sephton

Who Are The Water Dragons
Future Water Association’s ‘Water Dragons’ provide a unique opportunity for companies to pitch their innovative water products, services or processes to a panel of water sector specialists – the ‘Dragons’.
Inspired by BBC’s Dragons’ Den, the Future Water Association has appointed a panel of Water Dragons – senior water industry executives – to sit in judgment on innovations presented by Future Water Association members and non-members alike.
Water Dragons has become the main innovation award for the Future Water Association. Innovative products, services or processes put before the Water Dragons must be able to demonstrate clear and distinct benefits and presenters will need to explain how their innovation can make or save money for their clients – the water companies.
Future Water Networks 2019 promises to be a ‘knowledge blitz’ on the core areas of water and wastewater network management and we are looking for products, services or processes that will demonstrate clear and distinct benefits for these networks. In addition, entrants will need to explain how their innovation can save money or even make money for their clients, the water companies.
In an 8 minute pitch, followed by questions from the Water Dragons, entrants must be able to:
- Identify the Market need – what challenges is the innovation addressing?
- Explain clearly and succinctly what makes your product, service or process innovative compared to alternatives.
- Provide evidence on the potential savings and operational benefits your product or service could generate.
A challenge that KaarbonTech look forward to taking on with our SMART asset software solutions.
