Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Guinea
Guinea, officially the Republic of Guinea, is a country in West Africa. Formerly known as French Guinea. Forming a crescent as it curves from its western border on the Atlantic Ocean toward the east and the south, it shares its northern border with Guinea-Bissau, Senegal, and Mali, and its southern border with Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Côte d'Ivoire. The sources of the Niger River, Gambia River, and Senegal River are all found in the Guinea Highlands.
Guinea is generally a flat coastal plain, with a hilly to mountainous interior. The Niger River and its important tributary the Milo have their sources in the Guinean highlands.
Guinea's major environmental issues include:
- Inadequate supplies of potable water
- Soil contamination and erosion
- Over fishing
- Overpopulation in forest region
- Poor mining practices have led to environmental damage
Total Renewable Water Resources: 226 cu km (1987)
Freshwater Withdrawal: Total: 1.51 cu km/yr (8% domestic, 2% industrial, 90% agriculture).
Per Capita Freshwater Withdrawal: 161 cu m/yr (2000)
Access to improved drinking water sources: 71% of population
Access to improved sanitation facilities: 19% 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 Guinea'swater resources.
Guinea's main water resources are:
- Surface water “is water from the river, rain water, lake or freshwater 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 the 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 a high level of hardness or high level of chlorine, can be treated with Water Softeners, Media Water Filters
Pure Aqua water treatment solutions
Pure Aqua designs and manufactures water treatment projects that will enhance the availability of water among the Guinea population and increase the operational performance of the urban water facilities.
Pure Aqua manufactures water treatment systems that meet the World Health Organization requirements.
