Harnessing Wastewater for Clean Energy
Hydra Power offers turbines that transform the kinetic potential of sewage water into electric power. In doing so, the enterprise tackles the growing energy demand in South Africa by providing green energy while also participating in a circular economy by minimising wastewater generation.
Hydra Power helps mitigate environmental damage by supplying green energy through an innovative combination of clean power generation methods and sustainable waste management systems. It also creates savings for households and small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) by offering power at affordable rates.
The Durban University of Technology supported Hydra Power with mentorship and funding as well as technical support for product design and 3D printing of turbine components.
