Aclaira-C1 opening in Colombia

Aclaira C1® Opening Ceremony at UNIPAZ

Aclaira inaugurated, an Aclaira®-C1 unit at UNIPAZ, or “University of Peace” in Barrancabermeja, Colombia on February 13th, 2016. On the occasion, the rector of the university gathered representatives of industries and neighboring municipalities, as well as many teachers and students.

Powered by photovoltaic panels, the unit can provide 2000 liters per hour of safe, clean drinking water from the nearby river water. It has been installed since November 12th, 2015. Aclaira initially provided training with a theoretical part on water treatment and a practical part on the unit. A dozen students have benefited from this training. The objective is that UNIPAZ develop a center of excellence about the various membrane technologies and the best techno-economic choices for small communities.

To thank him, UNIPAZ awarded Michel Farcy, President of Aclaira, a public recognition and a decoration during the official ceremony launching the new year at the university, on February 10th, 2016. The moment was highly symbolic and full of emotions!
