Hungarian technology will be used for treating waste water in two regions of Ghana within two years, EXIM, which funds the project, said on Thursday.
The Pureco-Unit Consortium is in charge of preparing the plans and building the waste water facilities for the Jospong Group, one of Ghana’s largest privately-owned conglomerates. EXIM is providing funding for the buyer in line with a contract signed at the end of January.
In addition to Hungarian technology, Ghana will also receive training to operate the new system.
Currently the affected regions treat only 10 percent of waste water properly, but thanks to the investment they will have capacity to treat all the waste water generated, EXIM said.
Pureco-Unit and the Jospong Group have already cooperated in building a waste water facility in Ghana, where test operations are soon to start, EXIM added.
The Pureco group was established by a Hungarian company specialised in rain and waste water treatment, and its technologies have been used by the Budapest Zoo, Liszt Ferenc International Airport, Mercedes in Kecskemét and Thyssenkrupp in Debrecen. The company has also carried out projects in Transylvania, Bulgaria and Vietnam.
