Project Objectives       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 CE-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.
