The Target Consumers for this service;
Those institutions like schools, colleges, universities e.t.c which need to save costs on fossil fuels and divert such capital resources to other institutional development efforts. This is illustrated by the diagram below;
Farmers and entrepreneurs who have looked to Decentralized Waste Water Treatment Sysytem dewats) to diversify and bring in a predictable income stream and energy source reducing their use of fossil fuel and mineral fertilisers – Saving on Capital expenditure in farming and entrepreneurship.
The food, drink,coffee sector and others need to embrace the DEWATS/RZ-WATS technology to process its by-products in an environmentally acceptable way avoiding landfill fees and bringing in other benefits like renewable energy. We are excited to have pioneered a system that recovers biogas energy from the waste that comes from coffee production on our partner farms and mills! The energy powers ongoing coffee production and at the same time the system fights global warming.
Those real estate communities who want to recycle water for re-use in their domestic drainage systems;
Local communities who stay in big residential estates and flats who require an environmentally clean way of disposing their wastewater. This kind of a project can be very beneficial for the big slums in Africa like Kibera and Mathare valley in Kenya. It can provide useful biogas and clean recycled water to the community and its institutions besides keeping the environment clean.
Government , Private and N.G.O Institutions; this target group is illustrated by the picture of Meru GK Prison in Kenya below;
Meru GK Prison is a government institution located in eastern province in Meru County and about 220 KM on Nairobi Isiolo road. It has over 1200 inmates and over 300 staff in the 15 hectare compound. The prison is on a sloping ground and is supplied with water from the Meru Water company. The prison management realized the potential of the ecological sanitation through a sensitization programme.
The prison had a big problem of high firewood consumption for cooking the prisoners’ meals. The prison had also high sewage treatment bills from the treatment plant. These issues combined made the prison management to look into possibilities of adopting new DEWATS technology. Initially all the waste generated from the prison was treated by the municipal sewer. The new technology aimed at treating all the waste in the digester and baffle reactor and reusing the treated effluent in the prison farm as irrigation water and fertilizer. The product of anaerobic decomposition, biogas, also called methane was to be used in the kitchen as source of energy.
