Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Algeria
Algeria is a North African nation of 35 million people located on the Mediterranean Sea, between Morocco and Tunisia
Eighty percent of the country is part of the Sahara Desert lying beyond the broad ranges of the Atlas Mountains which parallel the coast.
Early peoples of the region were known as Numidians, and soon after 1000 BC coastal settlements and conquests by Carthaginians and later Romans took place.
Total Renewable Water Resources: 14.3 cu km (1997)
Freshwater Withdrawal: Total: 6.07 cu km/yr (22% domestic, 13% industrial, 65% agricultural). Per capita: 185 cu m/yr (2000)
Irrigated Land: 5,690 sq km (2003)
The World Bank reports that at least 80 countries have water shortages and 2 billion people lack access to clean water. More disturbingly, the World Health Organization has reported that 1 billion people lack enough water to simply meet their basic needs, unfortunately in many countries water is scarce or contaminated.
Pure Aqua provides wide range of filtration and economical solutions based on the Algeria’s water resources.
Algeria’s main water resources are:
- Desalination can be used for water from ocean, or sea source, which can be treated using Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Systems; Desalination Systems
- Ground Water or brackish water is from water located in the pore space of soil and rock “Borehole well”, which can be treated using Reverse Osmosis Systems, Media Water Filters, Chemical Dosing, UV Sterilizers.
- Government water supply, which could have high level of hardness or high level of chlorine, can be treated with Water Softeners, Media Water Filters
Water challenges & shortages in Algeria
Like most other third world countries in hot climate regions, Algeria has been subjected to water scarcity problems for a long period of time and has not improved in recent years. Several data studies show that Algeria will become one of the most endangered countries in regards to severe water stress and scarcity by early 2020. A huge factor of this occurrence is the high population density of Algeria’s inhabitants, including agricultural and industrial plants existing along the coastal line, which has resulted in expansion in the contamination of existing water sources. Pollution and climate change are two elements that have produced droughts which have effectively destabilized any actual stability. As a result, seawater desalination has risen as a sustainable solution to the balancement and enhancement of existing water reserves, and the subsistence of decreasing rainfall throughout the coastal region. Given this reality, our seawater desalination systems have been incorporated to a great extent with Algeria’s water treatment programs for the purpose of providing optimal drinking water conditions and sustainable development.
Reverse Osmosis Desalination Plant
With the issue of water scarcity in Algeria, seawater reverse osmosis has become an effective solution that the Algerian government has taken steps in utilizing to address this problem. Desalination of brackish and seawater is a productive method to increasing fresh water production, mainly for inland regions that are long distances away from seawater resources.Utilizing reverse osmosis systems is more energy efficient and cost-effective than alternative methods for converting contaminated water resources into ultra pure water. For this reason, seawater reverse osmosis has maintained its position as the most dependable solution of alleviating water scarcity in Algeria.
Pure Aqua manufactures water treatment systems that meet the World Health Organization requirements.
