Our dams and lakes are in a state of ecological disaster due to the pollution in the catchment areas which bring with it high volumes of nutrients (Nitrates and Phosphates), this is the catalyst behind a serious Water Hyacinth and Algae infestation. Our vision is to create a feasible Renewable Energy business out of restoring and maintaining the ecology of these dam and lakes.

Our dams and lakes are in a state of ecological disaster due to the pollution in the catchment areas which bring with it high volumes of nutrients (Nitrates and Phosphates), this is the catalyst behind a serious Water Hyacinth and Algae infestation. Our vision is to create a feasible Renewable Energy business out of restoring and maintaining the ecology of these dam and lakes. Our mission is to turn these dams and lakes from Ecological disasters into Bioenergy Farms. The plan is to use an innovative water based harvesting system and then process the harvested biomass through an advance Anaerobic process plant to convert it into Biogas. The Biogas will be upgraded to Bio-LNG. The plan is to do it on an industrial scale harvesting 1000t of biomass and convert it into 8000GJ worth of Bio-LNG or about 32MW/h electric power per day. The CO2 separated from the process will be recycled as an Aerosol Fertilizer in Green house to produce vegetables. In this way we can break the downward spiral effect of the pollution and create an artificial eco system that feeds on pollution to power a green economy. The pollution is not going to stop and the Hyacinth in to going to disappear, making this project renewable and sustainable. God has revealed to us a treasure in this disaster, not in the form of gold but Bio-LNG. We did a proof-of-concept stage and we are currently in stage 2 of the project upgrading to a pilot plant scale. We are require R10M to complete this phase and therefore we are looking for an equity investor or grand funding. Please see our website for more information www.hyapower.co.za

Nature-based solutions (NBS) offer a broad range of benefits, including improved water quantity and quality, carbon sequestration, and biodiversity protection. However, these solutions may also have trade-offs (negative or unintended impacts) such as displacing land users or replacing diverse ecosystems …
Nature-based solutions (NBS) take place within complex, dynamic, and self-organizing socio-ecological systems. These include biophysical, economic, political, and cultural systems. For example, a forest restoration project interacts with the forest ecology, hydrology, local communities, and regional businesses. The project also …
Effective engagement with local communities in nature-based solutions (NBS) projects requires thoughtful commitment. Build relationships with stakeholder groups and incorporate their input throughout the project lifecycle, from design and planning to project management and maintenance. Engaging and empowering a diverse …
By sharing your nature-based solution (NBS) story, you show that it is possible to create healthy, productive landscapes where nature and people thrive in a cost-effective way. By assessing the “full value” of your NBS project and demonstrating cost savings, …
Organizations, companies, and governments have the ability to design and implement nature-based solutions (NBS) at different scales. They can start with small-scale projects within their boundaries to develop a robust understanding of the NBS, test their hypotheses, and refine their …

It is very important for us because the one soap for one child project needs a lot of water during production of soap. So we have now clear knowledge on how to save water during post and pre-production.
