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. Read Less
