PANIWATER Technologies

PANIWATER is an international effort to develop, deploy and validate six different prototypes for the removal of chemical and biological contaminants from water, using Advanced Oxidation Processes. In particular, the prototypes will tackle Contaminants of Emerging Concern, such as antibiotics.

The prototypes will produce safe irrigation water, and possibly drinking water, from a range of unsafe water sources including wastewater and greywater. They will be deployed in peri-urban and rural areas in India.

Technologies producing irrigation water from wastewater and grey water


Multifunctional Reactor

A reactor integrating automatic mixing and dosage with two separate Advanced Oxidation Processes, based on the MITO3X® proprietary device. It is capable of treating 50,000 liters per day


Photo-electrochemical System

A solar-driven device capable of removing organic matter, microorganisms, and contaminants of emerging concern from wastewater at the point-of-entry. It is capable of treating 100 liters per day


Solar Photo(cata)lytic Plant

A high-capacity plant that makes use of sunlight to trigger to activate powerful oxidants such as oxygen and persulfate.  It is capable of treating up to 1000 liters per day

These three technologies

can generate irrigation grade water

from contaminated wastewater

Technologies producing drinking water from unsafe water


Multistep System

A device combining filtration, adsorption, and disinfection by LED-generated Ultraviolet Light to produce drinking water at community scale. It is capable of treating 300 liters per hour


Transparent Jerrycan

A jerrycan constructed of UV-transparent, food grade material, and can be used to obtain drinking water at the household scale. It is capable of treating 20 liters per day


Electrocoagulation System

A device that combines removal of geogenic contaminants (e.g., iron, arsenic and fluoride) by electrocoagulation, with the disinfection of chlorine dioxide and oxidation

These three technologies can generate drinking-grade water from unsafe water sources. In addition to contaminants they will also remove geogenic pollutants, pathogens, antibiotic resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes.
