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)
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
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).
