Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Angola
Angola is a nation of eighteen million people in south-central Africa that fronts the South Atlantic Ocean, between Namibia and Democratic Republic of the Congo
Despite significant revenue from oil and diamonds, Angola is one of the poorest nations in the world, with a life expectancy of just 39 years and low rankings in most aspects of human development (Its Human Development Index is 146th of 169 nations).
Angola's major environmental issues include:
- Overuse of pastures and subsequent soil erosion attributable to population pressures;
- Deforestation of tropical rain forest, in response to both international demand for tropical timber and to domestic use as fuel, resulting in loss of biodiversity;
- Soil erosion contributing to water pollution and siltation of rivers and dams;
- Inadequate supplies of potable water.
Total Renewable Water Resources: 184 cu km (1987)
Freshwater Withdrawal: Total: 0.35 cu km/yr (23% domestic, 17% industrial, 60% agricultural). Per capita: 22 cu m/yr (2000)
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 Angola’s water resources.
Angola’s main water resources are:
- Surface water “is water from river, lake or fresh water wetland, which can be treated using different methods, such as Ultrafiltration Systems, Media Water Filters, Brackish Water RO.
- 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
Pure Aqua manufactures water treatment systems that meet the World Health Organization requirements.
