Circulation Shower

We propose a circulation shower that saves 90% on water and energy. Families can shower endlessly with only a bucket of water. Our idea is to make an Africa-proof version of the circulation shower - a proven concept. This idea has already been deployed in the Netherlands and is ready to be deployed quickly on a large scale. By making circulation showers available to all families, schools and other public institutions, ...more »

Aqua-Cura Mobile Water Sterilisation unit

Over the previous 3 years, we have developed a water sterilising unit that can destroy bacteria, viruses and hydro toxins, without the use of any chemicals. We then combined the steriliser with a filter that removes toxic metals from water. We have had extremely successful results that was analysed by WaterLab, an accredited SANAS lab. (Please note that this is not a reverse osmoses system). This combination was installed ...more »

The only solution to this is to dig wells,which contain clean waters,construct ...more »

Elevated borehole Reservoir system

After discussions with a colleague with extensive experience in ground water research and borehole pumping projects, I learned that ground water extraction by means of solar powered borehole pumps have been proven quite successful in providing a considerable quantity of fairly clean, drinkable water to farms and rural communities. It is also a fairly simple system that works independently, requires little maintenance; ...more »

Protective and filtration water catchment points

I grew up in a hilly village in the South West Region of Cameroon called M’mockmbie and my village used to have some junction water taps built by “SCAN WATER”. These junction public taps stopped flowing about 15 to 17 years ago and since then, it has been very difficult for the people of my community to have access to good drinking water since then and they rely now mostly on unpurified water that runs through the slopes ...more »

solar powered borehole coupled with an ultrafilrer

This method involves the construction of a borehole with a pump that uses solar energy to power it. The pumped water is plunged upwards into a reservoir tank after passing through four ultra filters which are installed near the tank. A small tap connected to a pipe coming from the tank is used for easy access of the water. The ultrafilters ensure removal of disease causing pathogens before the water enters the tank. this ...more »
