Energy-efficient Community-based water and Wastewater treatment systems for Deployment in India (Eco-India)

Welcome To Eco-India

The overall target of this collaborative research project is to supply the safe and sustainable innovative cost-effective solutions for community based drinking water based on surface as well as groundwater treatment schemes. Surface water will be treated by using HRF-SSF-ACF unit followed by disinfection. Disinfection will be done by simple chlorination. As a EU intervention activated glass media with aerator will be used rather than mixed oxidants system will be used for alternative filtration technique against bacteriological contamination instead of slow sand filter media. Disinfection with the use of mixed oxidants will be employed as an alternative to chlorination. Efficacy as well as cost effectiveness of these filtration systems will be evaluated based on the field performance through continuous monitoring system. The extent and magnitude of Arsenic is being analyzed using AAS, UV Spectrometer, arsenic field kit and it also by using Biosensor. Arsenic removal unit will be installed based on oxidation-co-precipitation-adsorption-filtration method. Feasibility study of Graphene Capacitative Deionization (GCDI) Cells may be used for water treatment. Continuous water quality would be monitored through online and offline monitoring system and their performance evaluations. Wastewater can be treated using three stage reed-bed system and the quality may be upgraded by using activated glass and thus treated wastewater be used for agriculture purpose.
