Availability of fresh drinking water is getting scarce by the day and only made worse by the onset of climate change. Adopting technologies to source water from the ocean will be a very important feature for the security of water availability. Kanku Kenya offers to mitigate these concerns of water shortages by deploying seawater, brackish water and wastewater desalination systems.
Ocean water accounts for up to 97% of the total water available on our planet. Since almost 60% of the world’s population lives less than 60 km from a maritime coast, the largely un-exploited ocean water is poised to become one of the main alternative resources in such regions within the next several decades. In arid and semi-arid regions of the nations, desalination can augment available water resources.
Reverse Osmosis is one of the matured technologies applied to desalinate ocean/sea water and other highly-saline water sources. It is a proven technology for desalinating seawater. RO systems can remove salinity; various salt content ranging from 10ppm to 30,000ppm. Different types of materials of membranes are used in RO systems for varying amounts of salinity.
On many occasions a pretreatment system is mandatory for RO feed water to improve efficiency of the RO and the quality of treated water.
Types of water for Desalination Treatment:
- Brackish Water
- High Brackish Water
Pre-treatment Processes offered:
- Micro Filtration
- Reverse Osmosis
