AdEdge India, a joint venture between AdEdge Water Technologies and InNow, LLC, was awarded the design, construction, and commissioning of 100 eight cubic meters per hour turnkey water treatment plants for fluoride removal in the State of Bihar. These systems will be installed in the communities of Banka, Dhuraiya, and Katoriya.
This marks the first fluoride water treatment project for AdEdge India. Previously, AdEdge India participated in an arsenic demonstration project in the State of West Bengal.
The fluoride treatment plants will use AdEdge’s AD74 activated alumina media in the process. AD74 has been designated as the best available technology for fluoride removal by the State of Bihar, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research of India (CSIR), and several international organizations, including the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
“We are excited to be given this opportunity to work with the Indian Public Health Engineering Department to provide fluoride treatment solutions to the 100 communities for this project,” says Ashwani Kohli, CEO of AdEdge India. Saqib Karori, India Business Manager for AdEdge Water Technologies, says, “We are encouraged by this breakthrough in the Indian market and believe this project will have a tremendous improvement on the quality of life for millions of people in the State of Bihar, and we are excited to have the chance to make a positive impact in the water quality situation in the Indian Subcontinent.”
