Many third worlds countries are rich with surface water, which can be used for suburb areas and rural cities. Of course, to avoid diseases due to parasites, bacteria’s, virus.. , these surface waters must be filtered/ disinfected prior to human consumption. Our proposal offers a solution to this challenge and theses problems.
The technology of Ultra Filtration filter we propose will stop all bacteriological matters. It is easy to use, easy to maintain and works at low pressure ( 2 to 2,5 bars ) . The technology has been used worldwide and especially, in Africa and continues today for at least 25 years. We know also that finding chlorine could be a challenge in remote areas. To solve this challenge, we propose a Chlorine Reactor which will create chlore with small solar panel and without expendable ,except salt. This is currently being used in our technology. Even if water is completely purified after the UF filters , we know that some cans could not be 100% clean and must add chlorine in the water.
Separate from the technical part with pumping, water treatment process and disinfection, the success of this innovative system is also in the distribution, transportation and sales organization we propose, to insure that all partners share the benefits. Therefore, we will participate in this social engineering to guarantee the success of this economical and affordable model proposed to be used in the rural areas and cities of Sierra Leone. We will also do in country training for the local.
We strongly believe that this decentralized, fast-to-deploy, affordable, sustainable and reproducible model that we proposet, can easily be adapted for safe, clean, reliable and affordable drinking water supply in various place of the world
It focuses on local investors and limits infrastructure investment by focusing on communities with proximity to an untapped surface water resource, wells or drilling.
