Water Warriors Inc. (Water Warriors) and InNow India Pvt. Ltd. (InNow) recently announced a joint venture to provide cost-effective and efficient aeration system and super biomedia for treating wastewater from commercial and municipal developments in India and the surrounding region.
The joint venture will operate under the name InNow Water Warriors India, Pvt. Ltd. and will offer Water Warriors’ Microbubble Aeration Systems and Biomedia products, designed to increase water treatment capacity by an estimated 400-600 percent versus traditional water treatment plant solutions.
Increased efficiency is in high demand in this region, as it is estimated that only 30% of sewage is collected and less than 20% of collected sewage is treated due to lack of infrastructure as well as capacity in water treatment plants.
“As India’s population and infrastructure continue to expand, water treatment has struggled to keep pace. As a result, untreated sewage is often dumped directly into surface water bodies, polluting over 80 percent of India’s surface water resources,” says Dr. Rakesh Govind, Chief Technology Officer at Water Warriors. “Beyond pollution, water scarcity is of grave concern. According to the National Institute for Transforming India (NITI), if businesses and expanding municipalities do not take more aggressive waste water treatment actions, some 20 Indian cities are likely to run out of groundwater by 2020.”
Water Warriors’ groundbreaking Waving Biomedia and SuperBiomedia feature a proprietary, naturally formulated, bio-treatment and sub-surface media design that can treat a greater depth of water than currently available surface media. When used with Water Warriors’ Microbubble Aeration systems, water-cleaning bacteria thrive under water for longer periods of time, reducing sludge build up and drastically increasing the amount of water that facilities can treat.
By lowering BOD/COD and removing ammonia-nitrogen/phosphorous in a single system, InNow Water Warriors’ India makes water treatment affordable and achievable for individual commercial developments, addressing water pollution at the local level. “in an effort to conserve fresh water, the government is incentivizing the reuse of treated sewage effluent for industrial processes in India,” says Dr. Lakhwinder Hundal, Chief Technology Officer at InNow. “However, available treatment technologies are very costly and ineffective in producing effluent of reuse quality.”
