Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Comoros
Comoros is a nation of 850,000 people composed of three islands (Ngazidja or "Grande Comore", Mwali or "Mohéli" and Nzwani or "Anjouan" in the Indian Ocean, at the northern mouth of the Mozambique Channel, about two-thirds of the way between northern Madagascar and northern Mozambique.
One of the world's poorest countries, Comoros is made up of three islands that have inadequate transportation links, a young and rapidly increasing population, and few natural resources.
Total Renewable Water Resources: 1.2 cu km (2003)
Freshwater Withdrawal: Total: 0.01 cu km/yr (48% domestic, 5% industrial, 47% agriculture).
Per Capita Freshwater Withdrawal: 13 cu m/yr (1999)
Access to improved sources of drinking water: 95% 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 Comoros’s water resources.
Comoros’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 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
Water challenges in Comoros
Comoros’s water challenges are brought upon by several factors that limits the amount of available water to the public. These factors which threaten water security, economic development and well-being of poor communities include:
- Climate change
- Inconsistent rainfall levels and patterns
- Sea level rise
- Environmental hazards such as droughts, floods, and tropical cyclones
- Small land area
- Geographical isolation
- Limited natural resources
- Vulnerable ecosystem
- Lack of agricultural production
