Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Iceland

water-treatment-iceland.jpg

Iceland is an island nation of 311,000 people in northern Europe, between the Greenland Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, northwest of the United Kingdom, its northern edge situated just south of the Arctic Circle.
 
The second largest island in the North-Atlantic Ocean, is entirely volcanic (being located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and being pulled apart at the rate of one centimeter per year) and composed of basaltic rock. Weather is usually cold and wet, and blanket bogs are common. The surface is only partly covered with vegetation, the rest being bare rock, snow, and glaciers. The interior of the country is largely arctic desert, with mountains, glaciers, volcanoes and waterfalls.
 
Its major environmental issues include: water pollution from fertilizer runoff; and, inadequate wastewater treatment.
 
 
Water
Total Renewable Water Resources: 170 cu km (2005)
Freshwater Withdrawal: 0.17 cu km/yr (34%/66%/0%)   (34% domestic, 66% industrial, 0% agricultural)
Per Capita Freshwater Withdrawal: 567 cu m/yr (2003)
 

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 Iceland's water resources.

Iceland'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 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 SoftenersMedia Water Filters

Pure Aqua manufactures water treatment systems that meet the World Health Organization requirements.
