Top Technology 100 - 2004
In 2004, Scarab was first recognized for their innovative technology when Da Vinci / TT100 acknowledged the efforts of the Scarab pioneers. Since then, we have been awarded the TT100 recognition in 2005, 2006, 2017 and again in 2019. The TT100 program accepts only the top 100 South African companies every year, and we has been selected no less than 5 times.

Bio2Biz Award - 2006

In 2006, Scarab once more received recognition through the Bio2Biz award. Steve Nicol was honored with this accolade in acknowledgment of their groundbreaking advancements in domestic wastewater treatment technology. Notably, this prestigious award has remained exclusive to Scarab, never having been bestowed upon any other product or design. This distinction underscores the exceptional uniqueness of our sewage treatment technology.

The Bio2Biz award, recognizing Scarab's pioneering breakthrough in domestic wastewater treatment technology, was personally presented to the co-founder and CEO, Steve Nicol, by Derek Hanekom, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology.

This prestigious moment unfolded at a glittering ceremony held in the Durban International Convention Center, adding a touch of distinction to Scarab Water's achievements in the field.

Africa Leadership Award

We achieve another accolade !

The Scarab team have again been honoured, this time by being selected in Africa's leadership Awards. Whilst this acknowledgement is an endorsement to our many years of hard work, unwavering passion, and uncompromising integrity,  the real winner is the environment, and our thanks to the judges of this worthy event, who recognize this.

Tested and Endorsed

Our very first system was installed in the Drummond / Cato Ridge area in early 2002, after many years of research and development. The late John Bizzel, an architect, owned the small holding and we requested a trial site.
So impressed with the apparent water quality, Umgeni Water was asked for their opinion, and the water authority performed their own analysis of water samples. This letter confirms what they found.  I thank these water professionals for their efforts.

Frost and Sullivan 2015

Frost & Sullivan made contact with us in 2015, saying they had done some extensive research on water related companies including Scarab, and found we had achieved recognition as leaders in the water and wastewater treatment package plant technology.
Never before have we been scrutinized in this manner.  F&S went into our past, checked out our claims, dug deep into our markets, made contact with our customers, and then reported to us what they had found. Noting this type of research is candid, to the point and critical. Nothing seems to have escaped them, and we liked that.
