Unlocking wastewater treatment, water re-use and resource recovery opportunities for urban and peri-urban areas in India

Project description

Wastewater treatment and reuse proposals in India

The Ganga River is important for India’s economy and public health but it is contaminated by heavy metals and dangerously polluted. Combined actions related to wastewater treatment are needed. A government programme, the Namami Gange is addressing the problem, taking into consideration the sustainable development goals (SDG). The EU-funded PAVITRA GANGA project is part of the EU/India cooperation and aims to support wastewater treatment and reuse proposals in urban and peri-urban sites of India. It targets socially vulnerable groups and offers training for open innovation test sites, aiming for the treatment of open drains. By using advanced technology, it intends to eliminate heavy metals and organic pollution in the river and create new economic opportunities.
