How We Produce

A first in the world: With solar energy powered reverse osmosis desalination, we convert both salt and brackish water into clean, drinkable water.

This process (OSMOSUN ®) is an innovative patent by Mascara Renewable Water (France). It is reliable, cost effective, sustainable and automatic.

  • Low energy consumption (2,5 kWh/m3). Lowest level of advanced desalination technologies.
  • Low maintenance and operations (2.5 kWh per m3 of sea water).

  • Very low impact on the environment. No C02 emission when producing in solar mode and a very low salinity concentrate compared to conventional desalination.
  • 100% Solar Energy, Grid or Battery.

  • Strong economic competitiveness. Return on investment from 3 to 5 years with one of the lowest water costs.

With OSMOSUN®, we can produce between 600 and 10 000 000 liters of potable water per day.

Osmosun® installations worldwide:

  • Mauritius – Sea water desalination in remote and off-grid areas.
  • Mozambique – Brackish water treatment for communities (5 units).
  • Rodrigues – Sea water desalination in remote and off-grid areas.
  • Hessequa Municipality, South Africa – Sea water desalination hybrid.
  • Bora Bora – Sea water desalination in remote and off-grid areas.
  • Cape Verde – Sea water desalination in remote and off-grid areas.
How We Recycle

By designing an efficient waste water usage process and installing environment friendly water treatment systems, we improve the water cycle and reduce costs on electricity, water and chemicals.

In partnership with MASKAM Water, our wastewater treatment plants are installed with drop-in units, designed by Clarus Environmental, specifically for use in decentralized applications.

  • Black and grey water treatment.
  • Efficient for irrigation, toilet flushing, to discharge to nature.
  • Capacity up to 15m3/day (then parallel installations).
  • Small footprint (underground), No Noise.
  • Easy installation.
  • Very low power consumption – up to 90% less than most systems.
  • Lifetime warranty.
  • Operating expenses as little as R1.88/kl including disinfection (ZF-4000).

By reconsidering how waste water is used, we can save up to 64% of average water consumption.

Installations in South Africa:

  • Human Settlements: Sewage and grey water from a community is treated on site and re-used for toilet flushing while excess water can be used for irrigation (reducing potable water demand).
  • School (Oyster Bay) : Treated water is used for gardening.
  • Estates, Guest Houses, Restaurant (Mc Gregor).
  • Commercial and Industrial establishments: Aquaculture, farming, automotive (Barloworld, Maputo), Textile, Food Processing, etc.
