PROXA workshop promotes sustainable off-grid water solutions

PROXA, with its 25 years’ of global experience in providing solutions to water treatment security, is hosting an important, free to attend, high profile workshop on 1st November 2023, to address the current crisis in water supply that is threatening businesses and individual livelihoods.

Topics covered will include waste minimisation and re-use options, off-grid solutions, improvements to the water cycle, sustainability of supply – all against our current backdrop of countrywide failures of water networks and decaying infrastructure.

If your company is reliant on water use during the manufacturing process then this is a must attend event for off grid solutions alternatives.

High profile speakers include

  • Benoit le Roy CEO SA Water Chamber – What is government doing and what can industry do to mitigate increasing threats to SA’s water security?
  • Frans van Heerden,MD Astral Foods – Off the grid water case study.
  • Wimpie van der Merwe Chief Technical Officer – PROXA, Practical solutions, opportunities and cost of securing water.
  • Danie Rautenbach,MD 2zero30 – Electrical security for water treatment; planning towards resilience and sustainability.
  • David McGibbon,Senior Geologist, Umvoto Africa – Sustainability of boreholes.
  • Denise van Huyssteen,CEO of the Nelson Business Chamber – Business Activism in response to a radically changed environment.
  • Dumi Luthuli,CEO PROXA SA – Closing remarks.

Promising to be a thought-provoking session and with networking opportunities with water professionals, delegates will learn about feasible solutions to the sectors that rely on water for the longevity of their business operations.

Weather, climate (draught), municipal infrastructure degradation (exacerbated by load shedding, and recent audits of both waste and portable water treatment plants that have indicated a potential failure), and water tariffs that are increasing beyond inflation, are all issues currently posing risks for businesses dependent on a reliable water supply.

This complimentary technical workshop provides an opportunity for business leaders to learn from one another’s success cases of going off the grid. This will help businesses understand their alternatives and become more proactive in protecting their businesses from the potential risks.

Key take a way’s from the workshop will enable business leaders to understand what options are available for them and the associated costs in providing water security for their businesses with regards to water supply, availability, water quality, quality and re-use options.

This event is a not to be missed opportunity to hear and learn from the experience of specialists and businesses that have detached themselves from traditional grid supplies and secured their own destinies.
