The water you use for cooking, washing, and cleaning cannot be drinkable. This article explains how Smita Singhal’s startup, Absolute Water Pvt. Ltd., turns 1 lakh liters of sewage water into purified water per day.
Did you realize that the globe wastes 2 million tons of water every day? It might be due to pollution from industry, agriculture, or human causes, and it takes a long time and a lot of technology to turn it back into pure water.
This results in a lack of filtered water, particularly during the summer. The water we drink includes chemicals and, on sometimes, odors. Because the water used for washing, cooking, and cleaning is unfit for drinking, people employ filters or purifiers to transform this chemical water into clean water.
A water plant, on the other hand, guarantees that the water they supply never needs to be filtered and treated again to make it drinkable. Smita Singhal, a young entrepreneur, says that her firm turns 1 lakh liters of sewage water into pure water every day.
How did Smita Singhal get started on this project?
Smita’s father was a chemical engineer who created and constructed a system that turns sewage water into pure water organically and without the use of chemicals, which may be fed directly from the tap without hesitation or second thought.
Water is filtered using both organic and inorganic processes, including wood chips, sand, and pebbles. Sand filtered water is used for agriculture before being further filtered to produce clean drinking water. It is an entirely green water recovery technique.
Absolute Water Pvt Ltd. adheres to WHO-BIS drinking water standards by investing very little and conducting the operation with inexperienced workforce.
They employ cutting-edge technology to cleanse and recycle waste without damaging the environment. Absolute Water provides water to municipalities, businesses, organizations, and commercial and public assets.
The company’s many goods and services are as follows:
1. Water recovery system: This membrane is particularly developed to filter viruses, dangerous bacteria, pathogens, and other impurities. The sewage water is transported through sand filters to remove solid waste, and then the membrane system guarantees the membranes have a long life.
2. Effluent Treatment Plants: They utilize physio-chemical, biological, and process processes in this procedure. There is a distinction between the anaerobic and aerobic processes in biology.
They make use of a combination of digesters, low-rate anaerobic digesters, upflow anaerobic sludge blankets, membrane bioreactors, and sequential batch reactors.
3. Sulphate removal system: This system was created to address the drawbacks of other sulphate removal technologies, as well as to remove other metals and other characteristics.
It is treated with a low sulphate concentration. Absolute Water has introduced SRS for the first time in the sugar sector.
4. Organic waste to energy plant: This ecologically friendly technology is specifically intended for eliminating high solids. This thermophilic anaerobic method is used to eliminate trash naturally in a cost-effective manner.
5. Bio Filter Green Sewage Treatment Plant: The Biofilter is an eco-friendly organic method of filtering tainted water.
It includes an Ozonator to sterilize the cleaned water.
Only one-fifth of the residual material will be utilised as electricity with zero waste technology. Smita addressed this issue by giving 100 percent clean natural water and used a recovering procedure.
This compelled her to invest at a modest cost, with basic necessities, and to operate it with untrained staff in order to overcome financial obstacles.
Smita’s next step is to ensure that every individual has the right to pure and clean water. Using three million gallons of 24-hour trash, the AWPL process provides clean drinking water to over 6 lakh inhabitants. Her goal is to broaden her supply to more industrial and residential locations by developing more portable devices and exploring new technologies.
