Identifying best available technologies for decentralized wastewater treatment and resource recovery for India

Project description

Treating wastewater when and where necessary

The treatment of urban wastewater is fundamental to ensuring public health and environmental protection. Decentralised water and wastewater treatment are flexible and sustainable alternatives to large treatment plants. It can help solve water scarcity and climate resilience challenges. It involves locating water and wastewater treatment plants at the site of water supply, demand, or both. The EU-funded SARASWATI 2.0 project will identify the most affordable and best available technologies. A continuation of the previous project SARASWATI (named after the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts and science and the name of the lost holy river in India), pilots will be conducted in India, which suffers from a low level of adequate wastewater treatment.
