Business in challenged regions: Clean water and safe sanitation for all

Place:     Digital Participation
Date:      February 11, 2021
Time:      9 – 12:30

What are the challenges and opportunities for business in regions in need of clean water and sanitation? How can we do good business and aid people in need at the same time? Is the business situation the same in developing countries and disaster areas?

What solutions are available, and what is needed? Sensors and remote water management. Robust off-grid disinfection. Toilets that are clean, safe and easy to both use and maintain. Decentralised treatment of water and sewage.

At this WIN Water meeting we will explore decentralised systems and business models, and how they can be applied where they are needed. Join us and hear from experts with field experience, learn about exciting new solutions and meet potential business partners!

The wastewater passes two cylindric TreeWell tanks. The second tank is provided with selected plants whose roots absorb unwanted substances before the water is released. Through natural decomposition processes, the wastewater is purified from organic contaminations.  

In the sWASH & grow project, Carex of Sweden performs product development and test beds in Sweden, Lebanon and South Africa. In Lebanon, product development and test beds are carried  out in cooperation with Solidarites International, UNICEF and LARI – Lebanon Agricultural Institute, as well as the local agent, Mrüna. In South Africa, the tests are carried out in collaboration with the Water Research Commission of South Africa (WRC). In Rwanda, testing will begin in autumn 2021.
