Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Mali
Mali, officially the Republic of Mali, is a landlocked country in West Africa. Mali is bordered by Algeria to the north, Niger to the east, Burkina Faso and Côte d'Ivoire to the south, Guinea to the south-west, and Senegal and Mauritania to the west.
Mali’s water supplies, like its population and agricultural areas, are unevenly distributed. The Sahara Desert covers over half of the country, but the Niger and Senegal River systems ensure that total water resources are relatively large. Only 50 per cent of the total population and 36 per cent of the rural population have access to an improved water source (UN 2007). Pollution is another threat to Mali’s water resources. Nearly all the commercial and residential effluent from the Malian capital of Bamako flows into the Niger River untreated (UN 2004). Other major sources of pollution include agricultural runoff of pesticides and fertilizer, and cyanide and sediment from gold mining activities.
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 water filtration and economical solutions based on the Mali's water resources.
Mali's main water resources are:
- Surface water “is water from river, rain water, lake or freshwater wetland, which can be treated using different methods, such as Ultrafiltration Systems, Media Water Filters, Brackish Water RO.
- 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 Systems, 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
Water challenges in Mali
Mali is an arid land-locked nation in West Africa with an arid climate and where its inhabitants are provided with highly insufficient availability to uncontaminated water and acceptable sanitation. It is one of the most undeveloped countries in the world and consists of high-risk diseases and one of the highest infant mortality rates. A growing population that puts added pressure on water resources, climate change that makes rainfall less of an occurrence all play a factor in the shortage of water in Mali.
Water treatment solutions in Mali
Pure Aqua’s objective is to provide water treatment systems that will increase the provision of fresh and potable water, sanitation, educational attainment of young children, food production, and other benefits brought by clean water.
Pure Aqua manufactures water treatment systems that meet the World Health Organization requirements.
