ECA Technologies Africa is a South African founded company and is a leader in the provision of ECA Solutions in the Pathogen Management and Carbon Disinfection Technology (Municipal Wastewater) market space.
We started out in the European market (based in Ireland) and investigated the opportunities on the African continent for a few years before deciding the time was perfect to compete for business in this emerging giant. An equity based deal with a local VC has allowed ECA Technologies to launch in earnest in South Africa and start to target to whole Sub-Saharan African region.
ECA Technologies Africa uses advanced patented Electro Chemical Activation technology to generate ECA Solutions (non chemical based cleaning solutions called Eco-Lyte) that are rapid-acting, broad-spectrum and anti-microbial. All ECA Solutions are non-toxic, non-irritant, odourless and environmentally-friendly. ECA products are generated on demand and applied where required eliminating the concerns normally associated with the procuring, storing and handling of chemical products which are used to destroy harmful bacteria and viruses.
The company is also seriously focussed on the growth and welfare of the African continent and its people. This technology provides the perfect platform to introduce clean drinking water to poor rural areas and provide a cost effective way of keeping local hospitals and doctors rooms clean from deadly viruses and bacteria. ECA Technologies Africa is a company born out of Africa and is ready to give back to the continent. Michelle Bergh heads up the ECA Tech Africa social responsibility program called “A-HA” (A Healthy Africa).
Mark, a serial entrepreneur, brings years of senior management experience from the ITC arena to ECA Technologies Africa. After co-founding Avelreagh Holdings in Ireland which launched products and companies like the FB-i drive, i-Track and Nova consulting, he won the contract to launch Micro-Clean (an ECA Technologies company in Ireland) and finally brought the technology to Africa in the form of ECA Technologies Africa and Eco-Lyte.
Mark is the driving force behind the company and has a vision for the green future of South Africa and Africa as a whole. He is a tree hugging Capetonian and ever since he cycled his bike from the South to the North of Africa in 1996 his passion for the continent and its people has never yielded. ECA Technologies Africa can play a paramount role in providing clean water and recycling solutions to this continent. It is cost effective enough for the poorest rural areas and “it does what it says on the tin”, enabling millions of people to live in clean, disease free environments.
