Smart Water Treatment Solutions from EMWC
EMWC SA offers extensive experience in designing, building and operating small, medium and large scale, centralized and decentralized water and desalination plants throughout Africa. All water purification system installations include a maintenance SLA and manufacturer warranties.
Reverse osmosis is a process by which an external applied force (usually by means of a pump) is imposed on a salt solution, and once the osmostic pressure has been exceeded, the pure water molecules passes through a semi-permeable membrane, leaving the concentrated salts and bacteria behind in a brine/reject stream. The pure water produced is known as the permeate.
Metal reduction in water treatment is one of our fortes, with a specific recipe to ensure that any soluble metals are precipitated out of solution, and then removed via our media filtration processes.
Nanofiltration is a water filtration process used generally in the treatment of surface or ground water, and there is a low total dissolved solids (TDS) concentration. It is used for softening and removal of humic acids (or tanins) from the water.
UV light is an effective disinfectant due to its strong germicidal (inactivating) ability. Ultra Violet light destroys the micro-organism’s ability to replicate by disrupting the DNA structure. UV sterilization is an excellent way to disinfect water containing bacteria and viruses, as well as protozoans such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
Desalination is the process of converting sea water, or highly saline water, into fresh water. All of our desalination plants utilise reverse osmosis membranes, and we offer an energy-recovery alternative to reduce the operating costs of running the plant.
Greywater can be defined as any domestic wastewater produced, excluding sewage and kitchen sink wastewater. The main difference between greywater and blackwater is the organic loading. Blackwater has a much larger organic loading when compared to greywater. With proper treatment, greywater can be used for laundry and toilet flushing, and also irrigation of plants. The nutrients in the greywater (such as phosphorus and nitrogen) provide an excellent food source for these plants. Please contact EMWC for tailor-made greywater treatment solutions.
We have partnered with Maskam Water to be distributors of their Fusion Series System for wastewater treatment (www.maskamwater.com). Fusion Series Treatment Systems are compact, efficient, and designed to be installed underground in a typical residential/commercial environments. It uses biological treatment methods to treat the wastewater to within DWS standards. Download the brochure here.

LEARN ABOUT WATER
Here’s why… Highly effective way to save water Decreases your need to rely on municipal water Clean and eco-friendly More affordable than other systems Quick and easy installation What makes rainwater so great? Rainwater has a very pure composition with a low total dissolved solids content. However, it should be treated in the proper manner before being...
In recent years, the need for water in South Africa has increased beyond freshwater surface water; enter the increased need for borehole water. With water shortages, droughts and furthermore an increase in the population – we have now realised the need for water and also alternative water supplies to feed the high demand for water....
The average human being is supposed to consume at least eight glasses of water per day, which equals to around 2 litres. This is due to the fact our bodies are constantly losing water and need to replace that for us to continue absorbing nutrients, as well as maintaining our body’s regular temperature. However, we...
