Clean water through renewable energy in Tanzania

access2innovation and NGO partner MS ActionAid are working towards developing solutions for more efficient water cleaning.

In Arusha, Tanzania, MS ActionAid is looking at renewable energy solutions in order to solve the problems related to the vast energy consumption attached to water purification.

With the Danish company Green Valley, a unique water pump and cleaning system has been tested. The main purpose of this project was to establish weather water can be purified in the required quantities and quality by the use of sustainable energy sources. This would in turn fit with the overall agenda of Ms ActionAid of becoming more green.

At the same time, the expected financial gains from succeeding in getting clean drinking water will only amount to a fraction of the cost of today.


The project is not currently active.
