Looking for a great funding solution?

The water industry in England primarily consists of around 10 private companies that manage all the water supply in the country. It is highly specialised and successful at identifying new opportunities and delivering relevant solutions for the general population. Such that, the top utilities in the UK recently reported sales revenue of up to £2.1 bn in 2021. The water companies collect, treat, and deliver billions of litres of safe and clean water to a population of approximately 69 million people every day. They are also responsible for collecting and treating sewage and wastewater and then releasing it safely back into the environment. Technology plays a crucial part in delivering clean water to the people, treating wastewater, and safely returning it to nature. However, in recent times, the wastewater released has often been found to have large amounts of pollutants and toxic materials potentially harmful to the environment. It has become the biggest focus of conducting R&D and using technology in the water industry in present times.

Plenty of research is ongoing to find innovative ways to transform sewage water into fuel and other useful by-products, using new and improved technologies. Since it involves overcoming many scientific uncertainties and technological challenges, the R&D work undertaken by water companies is often eligible for the government’s R&D Tax Relief scheme. Businesses in this sector must identify qualifying costs and apply for R&D Tax Credits to gain funding for further research and innovation. Some of the areas that could be eligible for R&D Tax Relief in the water technology sector include:

  • Evaluation of polluting components, their cause, and effects
  • Development of innovative sewage water treatment methods 
  • Modification and improvement of existing technologies used in water purification and treatment
  • Development of innovative and improved filtration systems
  • Development of new water softeners
  • Development of improvement of distillation systems 
  • Development of rapid disinfection methods
  • Development of new biological filters
  • Conducting energy efficiency research
  • Improvement of existing cooling and heating systems
  • Extensive environmental impact studies
