Devesh Bharadwaj is an entrepreneur, engineer, and the CEO of Pani, an award-winning water technology company. Pani’s vision is to accelerate humanity’s transition to sustainable water and reduce annual carbon emissions by 510 megatons, starting in 2032. Pani offers a cloud-based, machine learning software platform to optimise the efficiency of industrial and municipal wastewater treatment and desalination plants. The platform integrates with a plant’s existing hardware, control, and/or data systems to ingest and aggregate data from the entire operation. Pani’s product then assists the operations team with visualizing, analysing, and interpreting their data to optimize performance, avoid process upsets, extend equipment lifespans, and minimize costs. When operations teams use Pani’s product, they save downtime and resources, ensure compliance and reduce their environmental impact. Currently deployed in plants in North America, Asia, and the Middle East, Pani is expanding its customer base across the globe and working with some of the largest water treatment players in the sector. Some recent awards and recognition for Pani’s technology and Devesh’s leadership include: Global Cleantech 100 list for 2022; Best Go To Market Strategy at BlueTech Forum 2022; and Emerging Leader in Canada’s Clean50 list for 2023.
