Pilot waste water treatment plant
While India is facing its worst water crisis in a decade, its rapid urbanization keeps on putting more stress on fresh water supply, while simultaneously water resources are polluted by untreated wastewater discharge.
LOTUS will demonstrate a novel holistic (waste-)water management approach for the recovery of water, energy and nutrients from urban wastewater. The required treatment and reclamation steps will be determined by the water quality needed for safe and healthy reuse in households, industry and urban agriculture. Innovative but proven robust technologies, will be incorporated in a modular pilot treatment plant along the Barapullah drain in downtown New Delhi, India.
