    Context

    Pumping of water for domestic and productive uses has been difficult to maintain in Tanzania. This challenge is highly attributed by the higher costs of pumping water using conventional means such as diesel generators and electricity.

    Solar Photovoltaic (PV) technologies have enabled rural communities of Tanzania to apply this technology for lighting, water pumping, charging of cell phones, etc. Community water projects using solar pumps have benefitted from reduced running costs as compared to diesel or electric water pumps.

    General description: Noga WaterCare is dedicated to developing new and effective systems to meet the need for pure clean water.

  • Open Absorption Cycle Device for Combined Dehumidification Water Heating and Space Cooling

    Type: 
    Product

    Background: The proposed system dehumidifies the air and uses its energy for water heating. The condensed water can subsequently be given back to the dried air in an evaporative cooling process; or when only dehumidification is desired it can be simply drained from the system. This unit can utilize the A/C latent load for domestic water heating resulting in significant energy savings for water heating and A/C. The system can control humidity in residential buildings resulting in comfort and significant health benefits.

  • CO2-Based Heat Pump for Water Purification

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    The technology is an energy efficient water purification method that can be used for large-scale commercial application. The process works by boiling the contaminated water to destroy the presence of bacterial or parasitic organisms and then instantaneously cooling it. It uses CO2 as the heating agent as well as the refrigerant. In a heat exchanger compressed CO2 is used to boil water to 116 ˇ C destroying any harmful bacteria. The water is then cooled in a radiator by using a fan. The liquid CO2 is throttled to reduce its pressure and subsequently cooled to around 5ˇ C.
