Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Gabon


Gabon, officially the Gabonese Republic, is a sovereign state on the west coast of Central Africa. Located on the equator, Gabon is bordered by Equatorial Guinea to the northwest, Cameroon to the north, the Republic of the Congo on the east and south, and the Gulf of Guinea to the west.

A small population and oil and mineral reserves have helped Gabon become one of Africa's wealthier countries. In general, these circumstances have allowed the country to maintain and conserve its pristine rain forest and rich biodiversity.

Gabon's major environmental issues include: deforestation and poaching.


Total Water Renewable Resources: 164 cu km (1987)

Freshwater Withdrawal: Total: 0.12 cu km/yr (50% domestic, 8% industrial, 42% agricultural).

Per Capita Freshwater Withdrawal:: 87 cu m/yr (2000)

Access to improved sources of drinking water: 87% of population

Access to improved sanitation facilities:  33% 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 Gabon's water resources.

Gabon'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.
  • 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 Gabon

Gabon maintains a low capability for the production of clean drinking water, insufficient storage, and maintenance facilities, which all lead to consistent shortages of water in rural and urban areas. Impoverished areas are made to suffer the most by being deprived of freshwater sources and suitable sanitation solutions. Inferior sanitation facilities and wastewater management systems offer the greatest explanation of Gabon’s poor water quality standards. As a result, an increase of tropical, parasitic, and infectious diseases are brought upon the Gabon population.
