Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Papua New Guinea

water-treatment-papua-new-guinea.jpg

Papua New Guinea lies to the north of Australia just south of the equator. Apart from the mainland, Papua New Guinea consists of a collection of islands, atolls, and coral reefs scattered around the coastline. The total land area of Papua New Guinea is 452,860 square kilometers (km2) and the country encompasses a large marine jurisdictional zone covering 2.3 million km2. For administrative purposes, the country is divided into 20 provinces. The capital city is Port Moresby. 

In 1997, the cultivable area of the country was estimated at 12,500,000 hectares (ha), or about 27 percent of the total area. Some 540,000 ha were reported to be cultivated in 1996, mainly with starch food crops such as taro, sweet potato, yam, cassava, banana, and sago. Export crops planted in extensive plantations and by subsistence farmers include coffee, cocoa, oil palm, coconut, and minor export crops such as tea, cardamon, vanilla, and rubber. 
 
 
River Basins and Water Resources
 
Geologically, Papua New Guinea is a young country. The presence of high mountain ranges and abundant rainfall leads to high runoff over most of the country. 
 
There are nine hydrological drainage divisions (basins) in the country. The largest river basins of the country are the Sepik, Fly, Purari, and Markham. Even though the Sepik has the lowest annual discharge, it has the largest catchment area, 78,000 km2, followed by the Fly River with 61,000 km2, Purari with 33,670 km2, and Markham with 12,000 km2. The other catchments are less than 5,000 km2 in area and are very steep. 
 

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 Papua New Guinea's water resources.

Papua New Guinea's main water resources are:

  • Surface water “is water from river, 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 

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