22 March, World Water Day 2021 – “Valuing Water”


What does Water mean to you? Why is Water important to you? What role will Water play in your future? Three questions treating many aspects of life – and some uncertainties.

World Water Day 2021 on March 22 is dedicated to “Valuing Water”. The day is used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

No wonder, even a country as rich in water as TIB Chemicals’ home country Germany has suffered from droughts during the last years, emphasizing that a change in water management and adapting to the new climate conditions is necessary. Water resources need to be protected and treated even more efficiently, to ensure long-term access to safe water for everybody.

One of the concerns in this context is the reliability of water pipeline distribution systems where material corrosion first leads to pipe failure and second to loss of precious water, be it for industrial use or for human consumption. Appropriate reliable long-term corrosion protection must be chosen according to the unique project parameters to secure water safety during the entire project life. 

Our PROTEGOL® Coatings are now protecting water distribution pipes for more than 50 years! We have participated in the Great Man-Made River Project in Africa and in Hidrocapital in South America. We are proud to continue contributing in protecting water and helping secure water access and safety around the world.
