CAFE clean aqua for everyone

Cafe,  Clean Aqua For Everyone.  is the CSR Corporate Social division of Dryden Aqua Ltd, with the sole purpose to provide clean water for everyone, especially in developing countries where many people do not have access to clean water for drinking or sanitation.  However the filtration system is also perfectly suited for the provision of rural community drinking water in Europe

System sizes from 500 litres per day to 50,000 litres per day in single modules

CAFE provide the drawings and technical information at no cost under an Open Source policy,  to allow companies to fabricate the filters.  We can provide complete systems,  but the objective is for local companies to manufacture and install the filters in the community. Cafe can provide complete solutions, but as the local social enterprise gain in confidence and experience, they will be able to manufacture 100% of the system. Dryden Aqua will continue to provide AFM active filter media, and any key components requested by the companies.
