AdEdge India’s First Arsenic Treatment System Successfully Starts Up in West Bengal
AdEdge Water Technologies (AdEdge) today announced AdEdge India, a joint venture between AdEdge and InNow, LLC, has built and started up its first arsenic treatment system as a demonstration plant in India. The system is installed in a community called Sayestanagar in the North 24 Parganas District in the State of West Bengal.
The demonstration period will last for 3 months allowing AdEdge to compete in upcoming tenders in the State of West Bengal. AdEdge India is also progressing projects in other India states such as Bihar, Assam and Punjab.
The arsenic treatment system uses Bayoxide® E33 adsorptive media in the process. Bayoxide® E33 is the industry standard for arsenic removal and reduces both Arsenic (III) and Arsenic (V).
“Arsenic contamination in Indian subcontinent groundwater is unarguably the worst water poisoning in the world,” says AdEdge Senior Project Manager Saqib Karori. “We are excited to be given an opportunity to make a positive impact in the water quality situation in Indian subcontinent and improve the lives of the people. We have called this campaign as ‘Live Arsenic Free.’”
InNow India Pvt. Ltd. is a subsidiary unit of InNow LLC, a US based company to commercialize selected emerging technologies in water & wastewater treatment applications in India and Asian countries.
