The project

Globally, 2.1 billion people live without access to safe water, and about 159 million people collect their drinking water directly from surface water sources . This issue is particularly prominent in water stressed areas, such as  India, which accounts for a rural population of ca. 700 million, 63 million of which do not have access to clean water. In addition, Contaminants of Emerging Concerns (CECs) are increasingly being detected in wastewater effluents around the world. In India, the Central Pollution Control Board reveals that more than 50% of wastewater remains untreated, at risk of compromising environmental services and drinking water resources.


PANIWATER is developing six technologies for water treatment suitable for the removal of CECs. The overall goal is to increase the availability of safe drinking water to the minimum level recommended by the WHO (at least 7.5 L/person/day) in the target communities, and to obtain total wastewater treatment capacity of at least 10000L /day, producing irrigation-grade, CEC-free, treated water.

We are going to put the animation here as soon as it is ready
