A Belgian cleantech company, BOSAQ, is using its expertise in water treatment technology to tackle these drinking water challenges. BOSAQ developed a system that performs water purification using solar power energy and minimizes the use of chemicals in the water treatment process and therefore reduces its environmental impact.
The water treatment unit is a solution for steady water supply in rural settlement in Rwanda, where there is scarcity of clean water due to the lack of centralized water treatment infrastructure. Not only because of the use of solar power but also due to its decentralized features, giving the luxury to produce clean and healthy drinking water anywhere, anytime. Local communities will be able to maintain and monitor the units, which will empower them to be self-reliant in their water supply.
