Reactonics was founded in 2016 as a company that offers solution to problems related to the environment, climate change, health, food, and renewable energy systems in Southern Africa. Our focus is on the development and implementation of innovative and sustainable solutions to regional and community challenges. The challenges include health issues arising from a lack of clean water and decent sanitation, inadequate energy supply, lack of knowledge in sustainable use of the available resources such as land, water and solar energy, and the excessive use of expensive inorganic fertilisers for food production. .

Values

Our set of values include, integrity, excellence and equality.

Mission

To design and implement adaptive management systems for the provision of community-focused solutions for building healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous societies. To strengthen education systems and accelerate educational progress in low income communities as corporate citizenship duty.

Vision

To be a leading organization in community empowerment to create sustainable solutions to water, food, and energy related problems in Africa.

Technologies

The central focus of our work is water-energy-food nexus and the approach is waste beneficiation. In this approach, different waste streams are used to produce biogas in anaerobic digesters (ADs). The biogas produced can be used directly as fuel or to produce other forms of energy, including electricity. The treated water from the ADs can be used for irrigation while the solid waste can be used as manure for food production. However, the work does not end there given the fact that the so treated water may still contain pathogens and/or recalcitrant pollutants. To remove these pollutants, low-cost advanced oxidation processes such as solar photo degradation and ozonation are employed as a post- or pre-treatment method.

For effective and efficient operation of multiphase system there is a need to understand the effect of operating conditions and reactor geometry on the hydrodynamics and mixing condition. The optimal operating condition are optimized using computational fluid dynamics to design the reactors and optimize hydrodynamic conditions as well as light distribution.
