Low energy plant for healthy water

A low-energy plant that turns impure water from various sources into clean, healthy drinking water without the use of chemicals has been introduced in Africa, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Called Aqua Plus, the plant was developed by German company GETEC Trade and its efficiency has been tested by the University of Darmstadt. The standard model has a capacity of 10,000 litre per 20-hour day while needing only 75 watts per hour and can therefore be operated by solar energy or even wind power.
According to GETEC water treated by the Aqua Plus is free of particles, germs, bacteria, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, cyanates, cyanides, nitrates, nitrites, hydro carbons, odours, colours and chemicals. However, healthy levels of minerals are maintainedwhich distinguishes it from “purified” or distilled water. As no chemicals are used, Aqua Plus treated water has no adverse smell or taste. Instead its taste resembles that of bottled mineral water.
The treatment process involves mechanical filtering, electrochemical oxidation and reduction, activated carbon filtration and UV radiation. It can be applied to surface water, rain water, ground water and secondary water (from baths and showers). The process is monitored by several sensors and an electronic control unit which will shut the system should a failure occur during treatment.
Maintenance requirements are low, but the activated carbon filters need to be replaced regularly. Maintenance costs are $0,11 per m™  ³.
The Aqua Plus standard model costs around $23,000 (depending on transport, customs, taxes and guarantee). Other models, which are available, include a mobile unit, which can be transported on a truck, and a large size, modular construction for locations where greater capacity is needed.
The Aqua Minus is a water saving system that turns secondary water into drinking water. It is available in different sizes to meet the needs of family homes, hotels, skyscraper apartment buildings, etc.
The UV sterilization unit, a standard feature of the Aqua Plus, can also be purchased separately for installation in other systems in the food and beverage industry, hospitals, industrial plants, laboratories and swimming pools.
Optional extras available from GETEC include solar energy equipment, sand filters and a reverse osmosis accessory for the desalination of brackish water.
GETEC is represented in South and West Africa, Malaysia and the Philippines.
