Water Treatment in Egypt: Reverse Osmosis, Ultrafiltration and Electrodeionization
CHUNKE projects of Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment in Egypt including different types of water treatment systems.
Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Gaza Strip and Israel to the northeast, the Red Sea to the east, Sudan to the south, and Libya to the west. The Gulf of Aqaba in the northeast separates Egypt from Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Cairo is the capital and largest city of Egypt, while Alexandria, the second-largest city, is an important industrial and tourist hub at the Mediterranean coast. At approximately 100 million inhabitants, Egypt is the 14th-most populated country in the world, and the third-most populated in Africa, behind Nigeria and Ethiopia.
Egypt is considered to be a regional power in North Africa, the Middle East and the Muslim world, and a middle power worldwide. It is a developing country having a diversified economy, which is the third-largest in Africa, the 41st-largest economy by nominal GDP, and the 20th-largest globally by PPP. Egypt is a founding member of the United Nations, the Non-Aligned Movement, the Arab League, the African Union, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and the World Youth Forum. And Reverse Osmosis in Egypt and Water Treatment in Egypt becomes more popular in last years.
Water Resources in Egypt
Between 1971 and 2020, Egypt renewable surface water remained stable at around 56 billion cubic meters per year.
- Renewable groundwater: 1.5 billion cubic meters per year
- Renewable water resources: 57.5 billion cubic meters per year
- Renewable water resources per capita: 561.9 cubic meters per year
- Dependency ratio: 98.3 %
Meanwhile, CHUNKE provides wide range of filtration and economical solutions based on the Egypt’s water resources and our water treatment in Egypt becomes more popular.
- 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 Supply and Sanitation in Egypt: Achievements and Challenges
Achievements in Water Supply
Egypt has made significant progress in improving water supply services, particularly in urban areas. Between 1998 and 2006, piped water supply coverage increased from 89% to 100% in urban areas and from 39% to 93% in rural areas, despite rapid population growth. Access to at least a basic water source is now practically universal, with a rate of 98%. The establishment of the Egyptian Water Regulatory Agency (EWRA) in 2006 further enhanced the regulation and service provision in the sector.
Challenges in Sanitation
While achievements have been made in water supply, challenges persist in sanitation services. Only about half of the population in Egypt is connected to sanitary sewers, leading to issues of inadequate sanitation and the spread of waterborne diseases. It is estimated that approximately 50,000 children die each year in Egypt due to diarrhea caused by poor sanitation. Low cost recovery and government subsidies for operating costs further strain the sanitation sector, requiring sustainable solutions for wastewater treatment and management.
Water Resources and Environmental Issues in Egypt
Egypt faces various environmental challenges related to water resources, which impact the availability and quality of water for its population. These challenges include the loss of agricultural land to urbanization and windblown sands, increasing soil salination below the Aswan High Dam, desertification, oil pollution, and water pollution from agricultural pesticides, herbicides, raw sewage, and industrial effluents. The limited natural freshwater resources away from the Nile, combined with rapid population growth, further strain the water resources in the country.
The Importance of Water Treatment in Egypt
Water treatment plays a vital role in addressing the water quality issues, meeting the demand for clean water, and enhancing sustainability and resource management in Egypt.
Reverse Osmosis Systems for Groundwater Treatment
In addition to desalination, reverse osmosis systems are used for treating groundwater or brackish water in Egypt. These systems remove contaminants and minerals from the water, making it safe for consumption. Chemical dosing and UV water sterilizers are also employed to ensure the water is free from harmful bacteria and pathogens.
Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment in Egypt
Reverse osmosis (RO) systems have gained importance in Egypt for treating saline water and seawater for irrigation purposes. These systems utilize high-pressure membranes to remove salts, minerals, and other impurities from water, producing clean and suitable water for agricultural use. With the establishment of RO filtration projects, such as those undertaken by Chunke Water Treatment, Egypt has been able to enhance the productivity and sustainability of its agricultural sector, even in areas with limited freshwater resources.
