. Purification: How can we provide people simple water treatment solutions? Basic resources in our communities such as pots, clean jerry cans must be used to keep drinking water, people need training. Once people are at clinics, safe guard should be part of the prescription to them; we have been giving people tablets to treat them but the water they are using to take them still remains impure, if we also advise and sensitize ...more »
Starting a campaign on raising funds for the future purification of water of our children. We can start a campaign targeted to each and everyone who knows the importance of water to donate 1 rand a week towards purifying water. From all the million people in the world if everyone can donates 1rand a week then we can have enough funds set aside to maintain pure water for each and everyone not in access to clean water

It is an idea of water sedimentation and purification.
As Enactus Midlands State University and in partnership with Future waters Bulawayo we designed a machine that uses carbon filtration process to purify water. it costs US$850. It consists of a manual hand pump to reduce costs, aqua shield filter and granular activated carbon filter. We are looking for means to avail and increase production of such machines and probably modification of having the machine at a large scale ...more »
The RediWater system incorporates the use of cheaper Ultra violet (UV) Light emitting diodes (LEDs) as the source of the radiation used to inactivate the microorganisms in the water. UV is known to be an effective disinfectant due to its strong germicidal (inactivating) ability. UV disinfects water containing bacteria, viruses, and Giardia lamblia and Cryptosporidium cysts. UV has been used commercially for many years ...more »
The presented proposal is a conceptual approach using a unique method to desalinate water and generate electric power at the same time, using a Hydromagnetic Dynamo. The Dynamo theory offers a mechanism of operation by which astrophysical bodies, like the Earth and the Sun, generate their own magnetic fields. A Dynamo, in its simplest form, is an electric generator. In this proposed technology, we use a Dynamo to desalinate ...more »
As an Agricultural resource rich continent, most African countries rely on mining, farming and energy production for their socio-economic growth sustainability. Mechanisms involved in carrying this industrial activities results and high concentrations of water pollutants forming water is known as Acid mine drainage. The water containing heavy metals , low pH, high Fe and Sulfates contents enters groundwater through rain, ...more »
Activated carbon is a very special component in water purification. Filter beds can be constructed and activated carbon is laid so that water entering from the top would pass through the activated carbon which is the purifying medium then clean water would come out under and collected in a tank which is safe for drinking. Activated carbon(AC) purifies water by a process known as adsorption whereby contaminants attach ...more »
