31 Jan NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH FOCUS ON PURIFICATION AND RECYCLING OF WATER IN INDIA
AQUAPORIN IN NEW PARTNERSHIP FOR IMPROVED WATER TREATMENT IN INDIA
In a new public private partnership, India H2O, Aquaporin and 19 partners, 10 of the partners being local Indian companies, are working to develop and demonstrate a 10-fold reduction in specific energy consumption with high fractions of water recovery up to 80% using the Aquaporin Inside® technology. Utilizing the Aquaporin Inside® technology the partnership will develop solutions for widespread applications and perform pilot system demonstrations to improve levels of quality water available for re-use and resource recovery.
Head of Business Development in Aquaporin, Esben Gad comments: “For India and many other places in the world, the situation of polluted water is too important and critical not to be taken very seriously. Drinking water is essential for all humans and water is vital for livestock, the food industry and farming. The partnership will help us secure this in close collaboration with local companies.“
Increased knowledge, education and management of waste water is the best option to make a difference. One part of the project is to establish a Center of excellence based on educational demonstration of the Aquaporin Inside® processes.
Esben Gad continues: “Treatment, recycling and recovery of waste water is essential to India and precisely what our technology can do. The Aquaporin Inside® technology is using natures own channels for water purification – and will serve as a very effective tool to meet some of the challenges in India. We are looking forward working in this partnership and demonstrate the wide use of our technology.”
The partnership is granted a total budget of DKK 19 million from the European Commission in the Horizon2020 research and innovation programme. The business development is anchored in India on local ground to meet local needs and to secure renewable improved solutions to protect the environment.
