Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Lebanon
Lebanon, with a total area of 10,400 square kilometers (km2), is situated east of the Mediterranean Sea and stretches about 210 kilometers (km) along the coast and 50 km inland. It is bordered by Syria in the north and east and by Israel in the south. Administratively it is divided into six Mohafazats or provinces.
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.
Other than river water, Lebanon relies heavily on groundwater as a source for drinking water, mainly replenished from rain and snowfall. The wells in the region are over extracted, causing a major problem for the aquifers. Over extraction of the aquifers is causing sea water intrusion, making it much more difficult to treat the water. The TDS in the wells increases and can reach up to 25,000 ppm. In order to treat water at that level, you must use a desalination system instead of a brackish water reverse osmosis system, which increases the cost for the end-user.
The problem of overusing well water can be solved by increasing the use of sea water reverse osmosis systems in the region. Because Lebanon has access to the Mediterranean Sea, using desalination systems will help with water shortage.
Pure Aqua designs, engineers, and manufactures sea water reverse osmosis systems from 380 to 660,000 gallons per day.
Pure Aqua sold a system to a livestock vessel that would transport animals from New Zealand to Lebanon. The issue they were facing was the cost and energy needed to transport drinking water for the livestock on the vessel. They needed a solution that would save them money and fuel. Pure Aqua designed a desalination system that was installed directly on the vessel to provide them with clean drinking water.
Pure Aqua manufactured a sea water reverse osmosis system for human consumption. Beirut City Center required a sea water system to treat well water with a feed water TDS of 12,000 ppm. The feed water contained high levels of iron as well. Pure Aqua provided a birm filter to treat the water before being passed on to the RO system. The sea water systems capacity was 4.8 lit/sec, manufactured with pre and post treatment.
Pure Aqua designed and manufactured an industrial sea water reverse osmosis system to treat 36,000 GPD to treat well water in Lebanon.
Pure Aqua provides a wide range of filtration and economical solutions based on Lebanon's water resources.
Lebanon'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 Sterilizers.
- Government water supply, which could have high level of hardness or high level of chlorine, can be treated with Water Softener Systems, Media Water Filters.
Pure Aqua manufactures water treatment systems that meet the World Health Organization requirements.
