With no stopwatch or accurate salt measurement required, the SE200 smart electro-chlorinator produces a batch of chlorine solution that can treat 200 liters of water in 5 minutes at the push of a button. The SE200 localizes chlorine production, eliminating shelf life and inventory management issues experienced with liquid chlorine and water filters while requiring little maintenance.
Global and local water-related challenges are becoming increasingly severe due to climate change, population growth, industrialization and urbanization. Flooding is the most disastrous type of local challenge and causes significant problems in human livelihood. A particularly difficult situation occurs when the amount of water to be treated exceeds the capacity of the unit. Then untreated water needs to be led directly to the environment.
Good water quality is a global issue. In Finland the quality of tap water is very high and even better than the quality of bottled water. Kemira wants to help provide access to such clean and safe water everywhere. Kemira has identified problems in the way different industries and waterworks utilize the raw water process measurement data: most processes are not adequately monitored and problems cannot be efficiently solved every time.
Desinfix: An advanced chlorine-free wastewater disinfection concept as an alternative to chlorine-based disinfection methods. It has performic acid (PFA) as an active substance, which a highly efficient biocide. This innovative technology is developed to meet the required microbiological standards, for instance, in various water reuse applications (agricultural and landscape irrigation, recreational applications, industrial water reuse applications). Desinfix is a fully biodegradable solution that provides rapid, safe and very efficient disinfection at low doses and with low total disinfection costs. Technology has low carbon footprint.
Aplication of Moringa oleifera in the treatment of water for human consumption polution removal by coagulation and flocculation
The Moringa oleifera is a plant originally from India which nowadays grows in various tropical countries. In Angola, this plant can be found in the province of Kwanza-Sul although it is assumed that there should be other areas in Angola ripe for its growth. This paper aims to test the applicability of Moringa in the coagulation and flocculation stages of water treatment. The water used in this study is collected from the River Bengo in Luanda, one of the sources for water supply to Luanda.
The water treatment system is based on simple filtration system, using coconut fiber and burnt rice husk as filter media. The process consists of a two-stage filter system. In the first filter unit, shredded coconut fiber is placed and, in the second filter column, burnt rice husk is placed. Water flows from first to second filter column. Read the rest of this entry →
WATASOL, as a technology, and a methodology, to produce chlorine locally, so that communities can have access to safe water.
WATASOL is a way to deliver safe water to ‘bottom of the pyramid’ customers. The WATASOL approach has two thrusts. First, it produces an active chlorine solution locally with Antenna Technologies’ WATA electro-chlorinators and quality control tools. Then, it promotes the product and its uses through innovative marketing approaches. Read the rest of this entry →
Q water is a novel module water treatment system combining media filtration and MF (UF) filtration to provide quick, quality water up to 15 m3/day in the small (2.5 m3) space. In rural areas, it can provide clean water to community of at least 60 persons.
1.3.6 “By 2015, 30 additional countries will have established national policies and/or regulations regarding household water treatment and safe storage; by 2018, 50 countries will have reached this target; the scale-up process will be based on a gradual and measurable increase of sound evidence of the public health benefits of this approach.”
