Wastewater treatment: Potential of membrane technology to neutralize wastewater pollutants in Kenya and Uganda

Whilst new technologies are emerging to treat wastewater effectively, water utilities in Kenya and Uganda that are responsible for treating waste are underfunded and burdened with debt. These capital constraints render the companies unable to invest in these technologies or partner effectively with manufacturers which further acts as a barrier to adoption. This report, prepared by Open Capital Advisors for the SMEP programme, provides a comparative assessment of the potential of membrane technology to address some of these challenges faced by many manufacturers in Kenya and Uganda.

It concludes that membrane technology’s low energy consumption and ease of integration into industrial processes renders it suitable for manufacturers in Kenya and Uganda seeking to reduce energy and operational costs.
