Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Comoros


Comoros is a nation of 850,000 people composed of three islands (Ngazidja or "Grande Comore", Mwali  or "Mohéli" and Nzwani or "Anjouan" in the Indian Ocean, at the northern mouth of the Mozambique Channel, about two-thirds of the way between northern Madagascar and northern Mozambique.

One of the world's poorest countries, Comoros is made up of three islands that have inadequate transportation links, a young and rapidly increasing population, and few natural resources.

The country is not self-sufficient in food production. Rice, the main staple, accounts for the bulk of imports.
The low educational level of the labor force contributes to a subsistence level of economic activity, high unemployment, and a heavy dependence on foreign grants and technical assistance.
Comoros's major environmental issues include:
soil degradation and erosion results from crop cultivation on slopes without proper terracing; and,

Water resources

Total Renewable Water Resources: 1.2 cu km (2003)

Freshwater Withdrawal:  Total: 0.01 cu km/yr (48% domestic, 5% industrial, 47% agriculture).

Per Capita Freshwater Withdrawal: 13 cu m/yr (1999)

Access to improved sources of drinking water: 95% 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 filtration and economical solutions based on the Comoros’s water resources.

Comoros’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, Brackish Water RO.
  • Desalination can be used for water from ocean, or sea source, which can be treated using Seawater 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, Chemical Dosing, UV Water Sterilizer.
  • Government water supply, which could have high level of hardness or high level of chlorine, can be treated with Water Softener System, Media Water Filters.

Water challenges in Comoros
Comoros’s water challenges are brought upon by several factors that limits the amount of available water to the public. These factors which threaten water security, economic development and well-being of poor communities include:

  • Climate change
  • Inconsistent rainfall levels and patterns
  • Sea level rise
  • Environmental hazards such as droughts, floods, and tropical cyclones
  • Small land area
  • Geographical isolation
  • Limited natural resources
  • Vulnerable ecosystem
  • Deforestation
  • Lack of agricultural production
