In a significant stride towards addressing water management challenges, Ethiopia has welcomed the inauguration of the Doba-Bishan Tab, the country’s first-ever water treatment facility. With an investment exceeding 55 million birr, encompassing land, building, machinery, and raw materials, the factory located in Mojo is poised to revolutionize waterborne disease prevention efforts.

Doba-Bishan Tab is a sister company of Bishan Gari’s purification industries, which has been actively operating in Ethiopia since 2008. To commence production of their water treatment product, Doba Industry Trading plc, a subsidiary of Bishan Gari, invested over 5 million birr solely in raw materials and machinery.

The state-of-the-art facility boasts a production capacity of 40 thousand tabs per hour, with each tablet purifying 20 liters of water. This breakthrough development aims to combat the growing issue of water scarcity and inadequate treatment facilities in rural areas, particularly in African countries. The lack of infrastructure and the high costs associated with water treatment have contributed to a pressing security concern.

Previously, Bishan Gari relied on imported raw materials for production. However, with the establishment of their purification industries, the company has successfully transitioned to self-production, resulting in significant savings in time and costs.

Bishan Gari, renowned for its commitment to providing high-quality products, has expressed its dedication to making clean drinking water accessible to all those in need. The introduction of the Doba-Bishan Tab marks a milestone in Ethiopia’s efforts to improve water management and safeguard public health.

As the country takes strides towards a more sustainable future, the inauguration of the Doba-Bishan Tab serves as a testament to Ethiopia’s determination to address pressing societal and environmental challenges.
