Submit your sustainable products for the remediation of Milnerton Lagoon<span> <h2 class="sectHeading">About​​​​​​​</h2></span> <h4>Purpose:</h4><p>We are looking for information on a sustainable product used for the remediation of natural water bodies where pollution has resulted in the build-up of organic matter in the sediments. This includes freshwater and estuarine/marine habitats.</p><p>To understand which product will be most effective, we want to evaluate a range of products for potential trial and utilisation at the Milnerton Lagoon.</p> <h4>Background<br></h4><p>The Milnerton Lagoon is one of several water bodies in Cape Town impacted by treated and untreated wastewater pollution. The pollution compromises the recreational and/or ecological use of these water bodies. </p><p>The lagoon is affected by anoxic sludge of up to one meter deep, which affects the ecological functioning of the lagoon, and results in a strong odour associated with the release of hydrogen sulphide and other gases. </p><p>Various mechanisms exist to address the removal and elimination of contaminated sediment, including the use of bio-enzymes, chemicals and physical interventions. We are currently exploring a wide range of potential interventions that might improve conditions in the Milnerton Lagoon. </p><h2 class="sectHeading">Evaluation criteria<br></h2><p>Read the <a href="" target="_blank">RFI 024/2022/2023 notice</a> for more information.<br></p><h2 class="sectHeading">Submit your product</h2><p>To have your submissions considered, all you need to do is submit the required samples and product information as indicated in the <a href="" target="_blank">RFI 024/2022/2023 notice</a>. </p><p> <strong>The deadline for submissions is 12:00 on Friday, 3 March 2023</strong>. <br></p><p>All suppliers of suitable products are invited to respond.
