Water polluted with fluoride, arsenic, iron can seriously effects people’s health. Consumption of this type of water results in painful joints, skin problems, brittle bones, headaches, diarrhea and stomach problems occur. Pregnant woman, babies and the elderly are most vulnerable in this matter. And water contaminated with arsenic is the worst of all: consumption leads to infertility, cancer and increases the mortality rate.
The SuperFloc: for simple and effective removal of contaminants
The SuperFloc is an innovative new system, developed by a team of scientists, effectively purifying water from fluoride, arsenic and iron. The SuperFloc also removes harmful bacteria, viruses, protozoa and turbidity from the source. The system is automated, works independently on solar panels and delivers up to 10.000 liters of purified drinking water per day.
Cost of operation and maintenance are largely reduced
Applying the SuperFloc will reduce the operational (energy) costs largely because of the low power consumption: the system runs on solar power. The cost related to operations/maintenance are minimized because local caretakers can be trained to do the job.
How does the SuperFloc work and quality proof?
The incoming polluted water is continuously mixed with harmless chemicals. The automatic mixing causes coagulation and flocculation of the impurities to take place. The generated flocs sink down and are automatically removed using a valve system to release the harmless inert residue. The treated water is 100% fit for human consumption. The attached water quality tests support this statement: fluoride is taken out for at least 90%, arsenic and iron were removed up 96-98% and almost 99,999% of the bacteria killed.
Easy to operate and maintain & independent of electrical supply
The SuperFloc system is fully automated and can be operated and maintained by local workers after receiving proper training. Refilling of (harmless) chemicals is easy and is only sparsely needed (once every 6 months). The electrical power is delivered through a solar panel/battery combination allowing continuous purification 24/7.
The system is developed to purify water specifically on the scale of communities, villages, schools, clinics/hospitals and all larger organizations. We collaborate with (local) Governments, NGO’s and commercial water companies distributing the SuperFloc among their clients.
Friendly for the environment
Comparing the SuperFloc purification method with Reverse Osmosis (RO), shows that the power consumption of the SuperFloc is dramatically reduced, up to about 90%. Wastewater producing is also substantially lowered: RO systems on average produce 60 litres of wastewater on every 100 litres of source water. The SuperFloc only produces 6 litres of wastewater per 100 litres of source water: a wastewater reduction of 90%.
Running on solar power, the SuperFloc produced no air pollution nor are carbon fuels needed for its operation. The flocs in the wastewater are inert, do not contaminate the groundwater table or the environment.
Income generation using a water ATM
The purified drinking water can be dispensed to consumers using a water ATM system. This system makes it possible to let consumers contribute to the purification process to deliver a long term financially sustainable solution.
