Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Bangladesh


Bangladesh is a nation of over 160 million people in southern Asia, bordering the Bay of Bengal, between Myanmar (Burma) and India.
Most of the country is situated on deltas of large rivers flowing from the Himalayas: the Ganges unites with the Jamuna (main channel of the Brahmaputra) and later joins the Meghna to eventually empty into the Bay of Bengal

Its major environmental issues include:

  • many people are landless and forced to live on and cultivate flood-prone land;
  • waterborne diseases prevalent in surface water;
  • water pollution, especially of fishing areas, results from the use of commercial pesticides;
  • ground water contaminated by naturally occurring arsenic;
  • intermittent water shortages because of falling water tables in the northern and central parts of the country;
  • soil degradation and erosion;
  • deforestation; and,
  • severe overpopulation

Bangladesh is susceptible to droughts and cyclones; much of the country is routinely inundated during the summer monsoon season.

Water Resources

Total Renewable Water Resources:  1,210.6 cu km (1999)

Freshwater Withdrawal: 79.4 cu km/yr(3% domestic, 1% industrial, 96% agricultural)

Per capita freshwater withdrawal: 560 cu m/yr (2000)

Access to improved drinking water sources: 80% of population

Access to improved sanitation facilities: 53% of population

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 Bangladesh’s water resources.

Bangladesh’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 SystemsMedia Water FiltersBrackish Water RO.
  • Desalination can be used for water from ocean, or sea source, which can be treated using Sea Water Reverse Osmosis SystemsDesalination 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 FiltersChemical DosingUV 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.
