Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Bangladesh


Bangladesh is a nation of over 160 million people in southern Asia, bordering the Bay of Bengal, between Myanmar (Burma) and India.
Most of the country is situated on deltas of large rivers flowing from the Himalayas: the Ganges unites with the Jamuna (main channel of the Brahmaputra) and later joins the Meghna to eventually empty into the Bay of Bengal

Its major environmental issues include:

  • Many people are landless and forced to live on and cultivate flood-prone land;
  • Waterborne diseases prevalent in surface water;
  • Water pollution, especially of fishing areas, results from the use of commercial pesticides;
  • Ground water contaminated by naturally occurring arsenic;
  • Intermittent water shortages because of falling water tables in the northern and central parts of the country;
  • Soil degradation and erosion;
  • Deforestation; and,
  • Severe overpopulation

Bangladesh is susceptible to droughts and cyclones; much of the country is routinely inundated during the summer monsoon season.

Water Resources

Total Renewable Water Resources:  1,210.6 cu km (1999)

Freshwater Withdrawal: 79.4 cu km/yr(3% domestic, 1% industrial, 96% agricultural)

Per capita freshwater withdrawal: 560 cu m/yr (2000)

Access to improved drinking water sources: 80% of population

Access to improved sanitation facilities: 53% of population

The World Bank reports that at least 80 countries have water shortages and 2 billion people lack access to clean water. More disturbingly, the World Health Organization has reported that 1 billion people lack enough water to simply meet their basic needs, unfortunately in many countries water is scarce or contaminated.

Pure Aqua provides wide range of water filtration and economical solutions based on the Bangladesh’s water resources.

Bangladesh’s main water resources are:

  • Surface water is water from river, lake or fresh water wetland, which can be treated using different methods, such as Ultrafiltration Systems, Media Water FiltersBrackish Water RO.
  • Desalination can be used for water from ocean, or sea source, which can be treated using Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Systems; Desalination Systems
  • Ground Water or brackish water is from water located in the pore space of soil and rock “Borehole well”, which can be treated using Reverse Osmosis Systems, Media Water FiltersChemical DosingUV Sterilizers.
  • Government water supply, which could have high level of hardness or high level of chlorine, can be treated with Water Softeners, Media Water Filters

Water Challenges & Treatment solutions in Bangladesh
Bangladesh consists of very limited access to secure drinking water and sufficient sanitation facilities in rural and urban areas. Furthermore, a condensed population, and few alternatives of safely disposing waste throughout urban centers all contribute to the sanitation and water quality problem in Bangladesh. Wastewater treatment in developing countries such as Bangladesh is difficult for diverse disadvantageous situations. The lack of quality education and an uncertain view of the country’s economics causes problems in executing advanced water treatment solutions. Additionally, waterborne diseases arise within urban villages due to the poor quality water and imperfections in wastewater treatment facilities causing harmful effects for the environment. Pure Aqua’s wastewater treatment systems provide the solution to handle Bangladesh’s urgent problems regarding wastewater management.

Pure Aqua manufactures water softeners and tap water filters for Bangladesh that meet the World Health Organization requirements.

Pure Aqua has over 20 years of experience as a global provider of B2B water treatment solutions for a variety of applications and industries, we offer a large selection of all types of reverse osmosis and water filters in Bangladesh to meet your industrial needs. Pure Aqua’s extensive global experience in engineering and manufacturing allows us to pre-engineer and customize water softener and reverse osmosis systems to meet a wide range of customer requirements and specifications.
