Bacteria Detection: microbial control practices are often based on an incomplete, or even wrong approach. Commonly, several efforts are spent to monitor free-floating bacteria in the liquid. Even if this is a widely-applied standard, it does not keep into account biofilm.   Biofilm & Energy efficiency: the improvement of energy efficiency within the industrial sector is, currently, a hot topic at global level. Unfortunately, the impact of biofilm growth on energy use and efficiency is frequently underestimated.   Biocides: the selection of a suitable biocide for a specific application is not sufficient to guarantee optimal results against bacteria. In order to keep pipelines clean, prevent problems, save money and time, it is necessary to check the real efficiency and to optimize the treatment.
     
Residual chlorine: monitoring microbial contamination in pipelines, and assessing the effect of biocide treatment is important - doing it correctly is crucial. Unfortunately, residual chlorine measurement does not provide a full understanding of the results of sanitation, nor of the amount of bacteria in the pipeline.   Safe Water in Smart Cities: both human and environmental health are strongly dependent on the preservation of water. In order to ensure it, monitoring technologies play an important role. Indeed, the application of smart technologies allows to optimize water treatment and to preserve this precious resource.
