Angola: Oil Minister Unveils Social Enterprises

Oil minister, Botelho de Vasconcelos, Friday, inaugurated two social enterprises that will improve the quality of clean drinking water and wastewater treatment in the National Petroleum Institute (INP).

The first project to be launched was the wastewater treatment station, with ability to receive and treat waste of at least five thousand people. The station is comprised of an input box that dispatches tanks for waste treatment and transformed into water, aeration, oxygenation and sludge. The foreman José Borges said that the entry into operation of the wastewater treatment system is an important step towards mitigating the negative effects of environmental impact.

Another gain reported by José Borges is the use of sludge resulting from decanting process wastewater to be applied as fertilizer for agricultural purposes.
