The Bluezone is capable of producing drinking water for all.
An achievement made possible thanks to the energy provided by the solar power station and LMPÆ batteries designed by Blue Solutions.
The Bluezone has its own drinking water production and treatment unit. This means that the Bluezone can become fully self-sufficient with regard to water, which is a first in Africa. In order to supply clean drinking water, the Bluezone uses a combination of biological and filtration treatments.
The biological treatment forms the first step of the water purification process. During this step, the water is treated with ultraviolet light and through chlorination. This stage helps eliminate the various micro-organisms, microbes and bacteria present in the water.
