bIo-mimetic and phyto-techNologies DesIgned for low-cost purficAtion and recycling of water

Project description

Cleaning wastewater through osmosis

Used in nature for a long time – by plants, trees and human cells – forward osmosis is today considered a promising technology for wastewater treatment. It involves the transport of water molecules across a semi-permeable membrane. The EU-funded INDIA-H20 project will develop and demonstrate novel batch-reverse osmosis technology for high-recovery, low-cost water treatment. For rural domestic water treatment, the new system will remove salinity and emerging pollutants like agricultural chemicals. For industrial wastewater in textile, desalination and dairy, the project will develop a cost-effective hybrid technology for recycling with minimum liquid discharge. The project will test its technologies in India’s arid state of Gujarat where surface water resources are scarce. Policy briefs on economic models and governance agreements will be disseminated.
