Lagooning systems in Cameroon
Socapalm and Safacam are building new lagooning systems in order to depurate the effluents from their 6 palm oil mills
Our subsidiaries Socapalm and Safacam are very concerned by environmental issues and make their best in order to fully comply with national and international environmental legislations.
Further to governmental instructions, Socapalm and Safacam are now building new lagooning systems in order to depurate the effluents from their 6 palm oil mills.
Each lagooning system will include a cooling pond, two anaerobic and three aerobic ponds. Their design will lead to depurate the effluents until the requested stringent standards.
In Dizangue (Safacam), the lagooning system is already in place and the ponds are now correctly doing the job they are supposed to fulfill.
In Kienke, the building is almost completed and the lagoons should effectively depurate the effluents in the next few months. (see photo enclosed)
In Mbongo, the works have started and the system should run by the end of 2012.
In Dibombari, Eseka and Edea, the technical studies are in progress and the building companies will soon be contracted.
By the end of 2012, all the effluents produced by our 6 palm oil mills will be depurated.
