The KaacKai installations use well-established Danish patented wastewater treatment technology through a long-standing partnership and evergreen exclusivity agreement to sell the installations on the African markets. The technology in these installations use a biological process to optimize the breakdown of the nutrient content by micro-organisms in the wastewater. By combining specific timing and aeration in the system, the digestion of the components in the water is quick and efficient.
The water can be reused for many purposes, such as irrigation, cleaning, flushing and washing. The installations are ideally suited for the African market using low tech, having a robust ‘plug and-play’ design, producing no smell and noise and using minimum electricity, for an affordable price.
