The Acid Mine Drainage Water Crisis in Kenya and Tanzania is affecting severely the groundwater in Serengeti and cause the direct suffering and death to animals while the heavy metals, arsenics and even radioactive uranium contained in the water from disused gold mines also pose a permanent threat to human beings and the environment in general. Governments and businesses deny or ignore the problem. That’s why in April 2022 ArtAqua Foundation Germany specialised in dealing with acid mine drainage water as well as the decontamination of water polluted by radionuclides, launched a rescue mission for Serengeti.

Water probes taken from Mara River show a terrible pollution:

Ta 0.5

Animals are dying in Serengeti already by dozens this year, game reserve staff is telling speaking on condition of anonymity to us.

If you would like to become part of the Serengeti-Campaign contact

Our combined technology is designed to pre-clean acid mine drainage water from heavy metals while in a second phase decontaminating water from Uranium as well as any other radionuclides by 99.2% bringing it back to below 20 bq/l making it become potable water again which can be released back into the environment without posing any harm. Here you will find the power point presentation of our technology being already in use in South Africa:

And, by our new Aragon technology, we are able to extract and make re-usable even smallest particles of heavy metals and gold, winning back every molecule!
