Pavitra Ganga

An EU-India project unlocking wastewater treatment,water re-use and resource recovery opportunities for urban and peri-urban areas in India.

Demonstration Site New Delhi

The Barrapullah drain

The 1.25 million Liters of wastewater that passes daily through the Barapullah drain systems make it an ideal demonstration site for the technologies that Pavitra Ganga will test.


Demonstration Site Kanpur

The Jajmau Sewage Treatment Plant

The three different treatment plants at Jajmau (Kanpur) are underperforming and cause different kinds of environmental pollution. This demonstration site offers thus the opportunity to test decentralised treatment solutions for secondary and advanced treatment in specific real-life conditions and to detect and remediate problems as a result of upscaling.
