” The right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation is a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life and all human rights”  Resolution adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 28 July 2010

 

INGENICA brings « its grain of sand” to this project that comprehensively brings together economic development and improvement of the living conditions for local populations.

 

In Limbe, Cameroon, in partnership with SONARA, our teams are carrying out an installation for treatment of process water and polluted stormwater of the refinery.

Ultimately, these infrastructures will allow the treatment of polluted water and stormwater thanks to two treatment facilities in three-step process (physical, physical-chemical and biological) before the discharge of untreated water into the sea, into the Gulf of Guinea.

When heavy rain falls, the storm-water basin will store stormwater before a posttreatment to reduce discharges.

Water management is often a major issue for governments. Cameroon, aware of this issue, launched in 2006 a sector reform that saw an asset-holding public company, in charge of the bulk of investments, CAMWATER and a farm company, CAMEROUNAISE des EAUX.

If only 26% of Cameroonians have direct access to drinking water, waste water treatment is also a constant focus of the Governement’s attention.

The Limbé facility, implementation expected in 2019, will significantly reduce pollution discharged into the ocean.

Protecting ecosystems (fauna and flora) and ensuring the sustainability of fishing activities in the Gulf of Guinea; all positive impacts on the daily lives of Cameroonians whose Ingenica is proud to be associated.
