Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment in Ghana
CHUNKE projects of Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment in Ghana including different types of water treatment systems.
Ghana, officially the Republic of Ghana, is a country in West Africa. It abuts the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean to the south, sharing borders with Ivory Coast in the west, Burkina Faso in the north, and Togo in the east. Ghana covers an area of 238,535 km2 (92,099 sq mi), spanning diverse biomes that range from coastal savannas to tropical rainforests. With nearly 31 million inhabitants (according to the 2021 census), Ghana is the second-most populous country in West Africa, after Nigeria. The capital and largest city is Accra; other major cities are Kumasi, Tamale, and Sekondi-Takoradi.
Water Sources in Ghana
In 2019, renewable water resources per capita for Ghana was 1,847.6 cubic meters per year. Between 1970 and 2019, renewable water resources per capita of Ghana was declining at a moderating rate to shrink from 6,433.5 cubic meters per year in 1970 to 1,847.6 cubic meters per year in 2019.
- Renewable surface water 54.9 billion cubic meters per year
- Renewable groundwater 26.3 billion cubic meters per year
- Renewable water resources 56.2 billion cubic meters per year
- Irrigated Land: 223.000 hectars
Agriculture is Ghana’s most important economic sector; more than half of its population depends on agriculture directly and indirectly. Generally, in West Africa, the land is used in a continuum of the whole toposequence with the cultivation of crops from the upland to the valley bottom. The potential for irrigated rice production in the inland valley swamps (IVS) and river flood plains is about 1.9 million ha in Ghana, according to the World Bank’s estimate. The potential for full-control irrigation development, based on soil and water availability, is estimated at 223,000 ha. Irrigated areas were estimated to be around 30,900 ha under water management, neglecting inland valleys and wetlands. Data from the Ghana Irrigation Development Authority (GIDA) suggest, however, that the irrigated area under full or partial control is only around 10,000 to 11,000 ha.
Meanwhile, CHUNKE provides wide range of filtration and economical solutions based on the Ghana’s water resources and our water treatment in Ghana becomes more popular.
Ghana’s main water resources are:
- Surface water is water from river, lake which can be treated using different methods, such as Ultrafiltration Systems, Brackish Water RO accordingly.
- 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, Borehole Water Filtration Systems, Well Water Filtration Systems, Chemical Dosing, UV Water Sterilizer accordingly.
- 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 & Shortages in Ghana
The distribution of consumable water and sanitation facilities consists of several issues, such as low attainment of sanitation, inconsistent supply, extreme water waste and insufficient water pressure. The low amounts of sanitation system and inferior water quality causes major public health concerns in Ghana, including a high occurrence of waterborne diseases in Ghana. For instance, due to contaminated water and erroneous sanitation, Ghana has over a thousand children that die from treatable diseases such as diarrhea each year. The education of the population is also affected since students, especially girls, are forbidden from going to school because of the lack of sanitation facilities.
CHUNKE Water Treatment in Ghana
Due to the vast amount of wastewater outflow from the urban areas throughout Ghana, there is a great need for water and wastewater treatment systems in the country. Our water treatment systems incorporate the necessary features to provide fresh and potable water for consumption and other uses.
Meanwhile, CHUNKE designs and produces water treatment systems that meet the World Health Organization requirements. So, our water treatment in Ghana is suitable for drinking.
CHUNKE has over 15 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, ultrafiltration, electrodeionization and water treatment systems to meet your industrial needs accordingly. CHUNKE’s extensive global experience in engineering and manufacturing allows us to pre-engineer and customize water treatment and reverse osmosis systems to meet a wide range of customer requirements and specifications.
