Transnet looks to make its own potable water at all ports by 2025 – South Africa

Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) is looking into setting up water desalination plants at eight major ports along South Africa’s coastline.

AFRIQUE : le dessalement dĂ©sormais au cĹ“ur des stratĂ©gies d’approvisionnement en eau – South Africa

Mais, de plus en plus, des usines sont construites pour fournir de l’eau utilisée pour l’irrigation des plantations. C’est le cas de la station de dessalement de dessalement d’Agadir (au Maroc), actuellement en construction, avec une capacité attendue de 275 000 m3 par jour. Une partie de l’eau traitée, c’est-à-dire 125 000 m3 par jour, alimentera un système d’irrigation dans la plaine de Chtouka, au centre-ouest du Maroc.

En Afrique du Sud, l’un des pays africains les plus touchés par les pénuries d’eau ces dernières années, Lucky Star, un fabricant de conserves de poissons s’est doté de deux usines de dessalement d’eau de mer privées […]

How Cape Town avoided a devastating water crisis at the last minute – Cape Town

After three consecutive years with a dry winter, Cape Town faced a water crisis that was so severe, its municipal authorities began bracing for Day Zero – the day they would have to shut down the city’s water supply, and residents would be forced to line up for daily water rations of 50 litres per person.

That level of conservation is foreign to most people in urban regions.

For instance, an average person in the US goes through 303 to 378 litres of water in a day, according […]
