Energy-efficient, community-based water- and wastewater-treatment systems for deployment in India

Objective

The overall aim of ECO-India is to design and develop innovative cost-effective solutions for community- based water- and wastewater- treatment systems. These systems will be deployed at pilot sites in arsenic-affected water-stressed regions in India. The two consortia, Indian (DST) and European (FP7), will establish pilot schemes for
• catchment area and reservoir management
• surface water supply schemes
• arsenic removal (including monitoring using UFZ’s field-tested Arsolux arsenic sensor)
• disinfection treatment for potable water based on Trustwater’s EC-certified mixed-oxidant generation systems.
• online monitoring of water quality
• water distribution network, together with online/offline water quality monitoring programmes
• sewerage and wastewater treatment.

In addition, prototype energy-efficient modules for water deionisation and heavy metal removal will be developed. A feasibility study will be performed to assess the potential for energy harvesting from sludge.
