A key aspect of Saraswati is to pilot proven European technologies for wastewater treatment and reuse in an Indian context. In different case studies across India the following technologies will be piloted:
- Natural wastewater treatment technologies and combinations
- Package treatment plants
- Actiflo system for stormwater treatment
- Mobile application for anerobic digestion
- Closed vessel composting for sludge treatment
After a detailed feasibility the technical specifications of the pilots will be determined.
GROW is a patented natural treatment system for grey-water treatment. It has been developed in the UK and is now piloted as part of the project SARASWATI in India in a student hostel in Chennai, Tamil Nadu.
HYSAF is a patented package wastewater treatment system. It is piloted as part of the project SARASWATI in India in Rishikesh.
