Engineering for a better world

All over the globe, you'll find Zebra Special Products setting up green projects in developing countries.

We build hydropower plants for sustainable electricity, water treatment facilities for drinking water and we turn waste flows into renewable energy sources. The technology we specialize in, helps improve the quality of life of people in these countries.

Despite the distance and the exotic nature of where we go, we apply a level-headed, businesslike approach. That means we get things done on time and on budget. Aftercare takes a front row seat here as well, because we want these projects to be functioning harmoniously ten years from now as well. That's why we don't just build quality technical installations; we also stay behind to educate the locals, imparting them the knowledge needed to assume ownership.

“The beauty of these projects in developing markets is that even with the most basic resources, we make so much of a difference. Clean drinking water and basic healthcare for the poorest communities means the difference between life and death. A smart deployment of technology makes the difference between just another day of muddling through, or the possibility of real economic growth.”
