New Waste Water Treatment Module

I would like to introduce you to a revolutionary waste water treatment module that is coming to market for the first time.

Housed in an 8x8x20 shipping container, the i50 can treat 50,000 gallons of raw sewage a day (about 200 houses) and process the water to high quality irrigation water.

This product is unique due to is portability, scalability, and its extremely energy efficient design. In fact, the California Energy Commission has given us a grant for $750,000 to become Title 22 certified.

This unit will also treat river or well water at a 200,000 gallon per day capacity. We believe that our technology will benefit the people of the world with poor drinking water and sanitary conditions.

Re: New Waste Water Treatment Module

Hi Jim

This is Steven Mwaniki the publisher of the 'Africa Water,Sanitation & Hygiene' magazine.I have perused your Module and its very impressive.

This information we are sure will be of special interest and beneficial to our readers (the majority are not members of the SuSaN forum) and in this respect, we are kindly seeking permission to preprint this Module in a readable version probably not more than 2 pages on A4 format and probably use 11 pts in a friendly font.Please include images,illustrations and or diagrams .Please visit our website at www.afriwater.org to view our publication and other details.

'Africa Water,Sanitation & Hygiene'is a hub of knowledge sharing and development and also dissemination of information to all the stakeholders in the water and sanitation sectors down to the community level. . The publication also focuses on a vast array of environmental and health lists that may periodically address water resources issues.

The publication is non-political, non-partisan and solicits for information freely for public consumption. It is free and not to be sold to ensure that nobody is disadvantaged in accessing the information. The Africa Water & Sanitation is a not-for-profit development publication.

As a matter of courtesy and appreciation,we will acknowledge the permission to reprint by inserting your names and logo in the article so that you may enjoy a commendable and value added corporate image.

Thanking you

Re: New Waste Water Treatment Module

Gentlemen, While I did try to get into your folder, I could not. This week I'm going to Taiwan. So it would be very nice to give me a background. The type of communal toilet and treatment. If your search for ATAD you will find a number of messages on the system. What is your system like? Regards, Jim

Re: New Waste Water Treatment Module

The system uses biological treatment and UV to purify the water. The electronics are state of the art and it uses very little electricity, and they make the system fully automated with quarterly maintenance visits.

Since is it in a storage container it is easy to transport and set up.

Re: New Waste Water Treatment Module

Dear everybody,
Dear Jim,

As many peaple, I am quite interested about your announcement; Can we have some basic technical information about energy consumption of the unit and performance? On your website the process is not clear; is it based on UV-radiation? As far as I know it is quite power consuming, and UV are not effective in high-turbide water. it yould be great to have relevant information.

Thanks in advance,

Geoffroy

Re: New Waste Water Treatment Module

Deo,

In response to your comment about infected food in Africa, we can help with contaminated food. The food is likely contaminated because they irrigate and/or fertilize with raw human waste. We can give them disinfected waste water for irrigation without removing the nutrients (fertilizer). Other treatment systems will remove the nutrients.
