Welcome to ENPRO

Environmental Engineering Programme (Pty) Ltd (ENPRO) was constituted under the Companies’ and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) of South Africa, with registration number 2023/653511/07, for the sole purpose to consolidate the Wetland-in-a-Box™ Intellectual Property, and to leverage funding for the commercialization of this ground-breaking technology.

The co-founders of ENPRO was Professor Anthony Turton and Gerhard Janse van Rensburg.

Professor Anthony Richard Turton

Director

Anthony (Tony) Turton holds a Professorship at the Centre for Environmental Management at the University of Free State.

He has served in various leadership roles in international organizations, including Executive Director of the International Water Resource Association (IWRA) and Deputy Governor of the World Water Council (WWC). He serves on the editorial boards of various journals and textbook publishers, and is an Editor for Water Policy, the official journal of the World Water Council.

Tony’s work in trans-boundary rivers is well known, and he was a founding member of the Universities Partnership for Transboundary Waters. He was an NRF rated scientist at the CSIR, and served as the Deputy Chairman of the Research Advisory Panel (RAP), which was responsible for implementing the national research priorities in water (and other fields). He was the official media spokesperson on water for the CSIR and he is a renowned authority on water resources in South Africa.

Tony has served on the boards of companies developing artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions for the management of complex fluids. His published work includes material on the Okavango Delta, which is the source of his knowledge about wetland systems. He has worked professionally on major rivers that have complex wetland systems, including the Nile, Tigris, Euphrates, Okavango and Mekong. His technical and policy work on mine water also involved wetland systems.

During the Armed Struggle era of South Africa, he served in the strategic intelligence structures, where he became a founding member of the South African Secret Service (SASS). As an intelligence officer he became internationally known, and collaborated with other intelligence services, for his work on water as a national security risk.

Gerhard Janse van Rensburg

Gerhard Janse van Rensburg

Managing Director

A veteran of the Information & Communications technology corporate industry for 47 years, Gerhard decided to specialize in the Project Management Profession in 1998, when he was headhunted by IBM South Africa and was immediately thrown into the deep end with three successive Y2K commissions.

Gerhard completed many projects successfully, to the extent that IBM started to assign him to turn-around seriously troubled projects. This gave him a reputation as the ‘Pit Bull’ in the Project Management Profession, because of his fearless, unwavering tenacity and perseverance to see even the most seriously troubled projects successfully and professionally through to the end, with a management style that fits any given situation.

In 2005, Gerhard was appointed by the Zambian Ministry of Tourism, Environment and Natural Resources to develop and commission a Central Electronic Monitoring Solution that will enable the Ministry to link all electronic gaming machines to the central system, where they can remotely manage and control these machines to conform to strict regulatory protocols and guidelines. He handed over his commission and returned to South Africa in 2011, where he picked up a contract with Standard Bank, and delivered many successful projects for this prestigious financial institution.

Gerhard changed direction in 2018, focusing on Community Service, as dictated by his strong spiritual conviction to become a Servant Leader. Since then, he was instrumental in developing the Unstoppable Movement for Positive Change (UMPC), another concept origination from the inimitable Prof Anthony Turton, an ideology focusing on establishing a framework for and effective transformation of South Africa, which opportunity was sorely missed after the first democracy was established in 1994. This drive lead him to meet up with Professor Anthony Turton and his Team in 2019, where he later discovered Prof Turton’s patent in the wastewater treatment space, and since Gerhard was already developing a hybrid constructed wetland solution for the water woes experienced throughout South Africa (and Africa), it was a natural adjunct for him to adopt the patent into his design, which lead to a full-blown commercialization design for what is today known as the Wetland-in-a-Box™ water treatment technology.

Gerhard is an Implementer, skilled in taking ideology from concept to design, packaged into implementable project/s.
