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.

Pavitra Ganga and the EU-India Water Projects

The Pavitra Ganga project's aim is to define innovative, cost effective and energy efficient solutions for the treatment of (unregulated) drains in India.

India’s water resources are under severe stress resulting from overexploitation and pollution.

To achieve the goals of PAVITRA GANGA we have set a number of specific objectives.

Discover more about the Pavitra Ganga consortium and the EU-India sister projects.

Pavitra Ganga tests and demonstrates innovative waste water treatment and resource recovery technologies both lab scale and in real life Indian conditions. Discover the technologies here.

Pavitra Ganga validates the selected technologies at the demonstration sites and demonstrates modular wastewater treatment solutions in specific setups.
