Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Benin
Benin, officially the Republic of Benin (French: République du Bénin), is a country in West Africa. It is bordered by Togo to the west, by Nigeria to the east and by Burkina Faso and Niger to the north. A majority of the population live on its small southern coastline on the Bight of Benin.
The Benin shares its major river basins (Niger, Mono, Volta) with its neighboring countries. He is a member of the Niger Basin Authority (NBA) and provides for the development of water resources it has in common with Togo and Niger. It also participates in the ongoing discussions on the prevention related to operations and management of shared water resources conflicts.
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 Benin’s water resources.
Benin’s main water resources are:
- Surface water “is water from river, rain water, lake or fresh water wetland, which can be treated using different methods, such us 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
Water problems in Benin
Benin’s water scarcity issue has been classified as amongst the highest in the world. This means that droughts are seen as a continuous occurrence, which surmounts to about once every 5 years. Due to this prevalence, the severity of droughts are taken into account within our water treatment projects, which includes its effects on the public and the development of infrastructure. Project iniatement, design, and construction are considered in correspondence to the level of water scarcity.
The impact of climate change is not consistent due to inaccurate model projections which leads to bad estimates of alterations in drought hazards. The current drought hazard level is capable of increasing in the future due to the worsening conditions of climate change. For this reason, it is imperative for our design projects in Benin to be compact and ready to handle the drought and water scarcity that plagues this nation in the long-term.
Sustainable Treatment Solutions for Drinking and Process Water
Regardless of your need for process water for industrial plants or consumable water for the public, Pure Aqua has custom water purification systems that are designed to provide the right solutions for your operation. Other than large-scale water purification plants, we pursue effective decentralized water solutions that are interchangeable, scalable, and quick to deploy. Pure Aqua’s reverse osmosis systems encompasses the features and capabilities that will maximize the water treatment processes.
Pure Aqua manufacture water treatment systems that meets the World Health Organization requirements.
