Delegates will see the bottling plant and the water saving projects that were implemented that helped us reduce our waste water by over 60%, saving over 50 million litres of municipal water between January 2017 and January 2018. They will also see our alternative water supply project that we have initiated to reduce our dependence on the municipal water supply by installing our own boreholes and reverse osmosis plant.
The Hub is a research and demonstration site that is currently using infrastructure from an old waste water treatment plant to treat contaminated water flowing in a nearby stream (largely influenced by water quality and quantity from the nearly informal settlement) and also treating storm water. Attending delegates will view large biofiltration cells, stormwater treatment trains, and the food gardens in operation.
Bellville Waste Water Treatment Plant
Bellville plant feature’s the largest membrane bioreactor (MBR) in South Africa and the facility’s capacity will increase by 20 Mℓ/d to 70 Mℓ/d. Attending delegates will view how the plant supply a new sludge dewatering facility, as well as upgrade the existing electrical and control systems infrastructure at the Bellville WWTW.
Fisantekraal waste water treatment plant
The waste water treatment plant undertaken for the City of Cape Town features the most innovative and up-to-date electrical, control and instrumentation technology. Attending delegates will view the advanced biological reactor works with automated inlet screening and degritters, surface aerated biological reactors, secondary settling tanks, sludge dewatering system (linear screens and belt presses) and final effluent disinfection system.
Robben Island Solar Installation
Robben Island by solar energy firm SOLA Future Energy has drastically reduced the island's reliance on costly diesel power. The attending delegates will learn about largest combined solar and lithium-ion storage facility in South Africa.
