AUSTRALIAN HYDRO TREATMENT FOR GANGA RIVER

An inexpensive, portable and safe water disinfection system from Australia could be one solution to rehabilitating the Ganga River in Rajasthan. 

Hydro-dis Water Treatment Systems has developed an effective and cost efficient technology that supersedes traditional treatment systems.

The company, from the arid state of South Australia, is part of a business delegation visiting India in August to help provide water solutions for Rajasthan.

Hydro-dis Managing Director Mark Carey said the Hydro-dis technology is a simple alternative to other treatment methods and is suited for rural communities.

The transportable machine can be attached to any pipe so that dirty water flows in one end, is treated and then flows out the other side clean.

Systems are scalable and can churn up to 10 million litres a day.

“We are reducing environmental footprints and costs across the board,” Carey said.

“Our technology eliminates the transport side of the equation and the storage. It is also simple to set up.

“We are looking to work on a number of different projects (in Rajasthan) and the Ganges is certainly one of the biggest ones where they are trying to use the water for drinking.”

The Indian Government last week announced its intention to reduce the industrial effluents and sewage that pollute and obstruct the flow of the river Ganga.

Carey said the Hydro-dis technology did not require harmful materials such as chlorine gas because it used minerals already in the water to fuel the disinfectant process.

It uses in-situ electrocatalytic generation of chlorine to disinfect water and can be used for various industries to create potable and non-potable water from wastewater.

The unique technique creates chloride ions from salt already present in the water, making it suitable for freshwater and saltwater sources.

The device also works to prevent scaling and fouling.
