A nature-based solution for a water-scarce environment
The installation of our demo site in Bangalore is almost finished. The INNOQUA system will treat the wastewater from ten households and will benefit people from a low-income community in the Beedi workers colony in the southwestern part of Bangalore. The treated wastewater will be used for irrigating a community garden that will provide fruit and vegetables to the nearby school. The hope is that this fresh produce will help improve the diet of local children, who suffer from a high rate of malnutrition.
In India the INNOQUA system configuration includes a presettler, a lumbrifilter as the first and secondary treatment stage, a daphniafilter and biosolar purification via algae and sunlight as tertiary treatment stages, and a UV lamp for final disinfection as the quaternary treatment stage.
Design capacity: 1.5m3/day
Source of wastewater: Toilets and bathroom
Scientific research objective: Sustainability transition in the wastewater sector and new alternative sanitation systems
