Processes used to convert the water are either filtration, process like settling or chemical processes such as coagulation and disinfection.
This method benefits both municipal and industrial clients who realise that recycling and purification of used water is of utmost importance.
Saltwater is desalinated to produce water suitable for human consumption or irrigation. One by-product of desalination is salt.Desalination is mainly focused on the optimal provision of fresh water for human use.
Currently, approximately 1% of the world’s population is dependent on desalinated water to meet daily needs, but the UN expects that 14% of the world’s population will encounter water scarcity by 2025.
Desalination is particularly relevant in water scarce or dry countries such as Africa and the desalinated water is usually healthier than water from rivers and ground water.
A number of coastal municipalities have implemented desalination plants in order to alleviate drought conditions and water scarcity.
Water, sanitation and waste management are important driving forces for community health within South and Southern Africa. A clean environment, open defecation free areas, personal hygiene practices among individual members of a community, proper solid and liquid waste management, and availability of adequate safe drinking water determine the health of individuals as well as the community.
PuRK Energy & Water’s focus is ensuring the provision of effective and affordable sanitation systems for all people within Africa.
