AGNIi <> Bhabha Atomic Research Centre | Water Purification Technology

Bhabha Atomic Research Centre of the Department of Atomic Energy has developed a combo domestic water purifier device which is made of polysulfone based nanocomposite ultrafiltration membrane in cylindrical configuration. AGNIi identified social impact agencies and some corporates including Common Service Centers (CSC) of Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, who are strongly committed to provide safe drinking water. Reports on water quality of severely impacted villages were shared with BARC post which lab visits and meetings with BARC were organized among the parties to see the technology in working. A Letter of Intent was signed with CSC, a large corporate, and two other social agencies for licensing and implementation across severely affected villages. This led to avoiding several health hazards in these villages by reducing microbial contaminations, arsenic and iron without the need of any electrical and overhead water tank. It also helped in creating livelihood for village level entrepreneurs.
