An introduction from Dr John Duffy

At Smart Storm we have a strong belief in protecting our planet from pollution. Pollution has three forms, water, air and soil. If we don’t monitor Pollution we can’t measure it and if we don’t measure it we can’t treat it and if we don’t treat it we can’t control it. This is where Smart Storm comes in.

Our water treatment specialists are dedicated to designing and developing instrumentation and systems that meet the demands of pollution prevention and control. Our products offer a simpler and more cost effective means of measuring and controlling waste and enable waste water to be managed and treated at source more easily, rather than at treatment plants, which gives a major benefit in reducing carbon footprints and provides a positive social impact through an enhanced and cleaner environment.

‘Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations.’ – Earl Nightingale
