  1. While access to potable water in India has increased over the past decade the tremendous adverse impact of unsafe water on health continues
  2. It is estimated that about 21 % of communicable diseases in India is water related
  3. The highest mortality from diarrhoea is said to be among children under the age of five, highlighting an urgent need for focused interventions to prevent diarrhoeal disease in this age group
  4. According to the World Watch Institute and World Health Organisation, India will be a highly water stressed country from 2020 onwards i.e., less than 1000 m3 of water will be available per person per annume
  5. Most of India’s rural population (700 million people, > 150,000 villages) are affected by
    • Severe water scarcity
    • Waterborne diseases caused by microbiological contamination
    • Excessive levels of fluoride, nitrates, iron and arsenic in available water, which cause severe health disorders.

ECO-India is a joint collaboration comprising two consortia, funded by the European Commission’s Framework 7 programme (EC-FP7) and the Indian Department of Science and Technology (DST), respectively. ECO-India is designed to develop cost-effective approaches for production of potable water and treatment of wastewater, that can be adapted to different institutional and economic contexts across India, Europe and the wider community. The DST consortium, together with Adelphi, will also assess the feasibility of improved monitoring of water networks to enhance control and management. All research activities within the project are targeted at future developments in compliance with the Water Framework Directive 2000/06/EU

Ground Water Treatment For Arsenic Removal

Surface Water Treatment For Arsenic Removal

AFM Application Areas

Swimming pool

AFM® reduces the biological risk from bacteria and parasites as well as the chemical risk from water and air just above the surface. The result is a safer pool for children, a healthier work place for staff in public pools and a greatly improved swimming experience for everyone. Read More…

Pretreatment to membranes ( RO & UF)

UF, RO membranes  & DM plant resins work best when they are new and clean. Fouling of the membranes by inorganic and organic contaminants as well as biofouling are some of the main issues effecting the performance and cost of running  water treatment systems.Read More…

Arsenic Removal

Arsenic is often found in borehole / tube wells and ground water at varying concentrations depending upon the geology of the ground. In India western states along with certain locations in the south have fairly high contamination of Arsenic in the ground water. IN certain cases Arsenic is also found in the waste water effluent of certain industries. Read More…

Iron & Manganese removal

Iron and manganese are often found in borehole / tube wells and ground water at varying concentrations depending upon the geology of the ground. Read More…

Chromium removal

Chromium is occasionally found in ground water in trace amount from 1 to 10 ug/l however the occurrence of chromium is usually associated with pollution from industries such a leather tanning, wood preservation and textiles. Polluted ground water may have much higher concentrations. Read More…
