IIT Madras and TANSTIA ink pact on water treatment project
The Indian Institute of Technology, Madras and Tanstia-FNF Service Centre inked partnership on water treatment project. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Prof. Krishnan Balasubramaniam, Dean, Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research, IIT Madras and C. Babu, Chairman, TANSTIA-FNF Service Centre.
International Development Research Centre, Canada has funded the research project which includes developing the filter and water analysis kit. Prof. Ligy Philip, Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Madras along with her students Dr. R. Elangovan and Mr. D. Kumaran, developed two water testing kits. The kit is developed for continuous monitoring of quality of drinking water mainly in rural areas. They were distributed to 176 panchayats for field testing.
Speaking on the agreement, Babu said, “The plan was to take this technology to 1,500 entrepreneurs in five years.”
According to TANSTIA-FNF Service Centre most of the problems arise due to lack of awareness and access to water testing facilities. The water treatment system will remove turbidity, organic matter, colour and odour along with most bacteriological contamination. The filtered water is collected in a container with proper lid, tap and chlorine tablet is added to remove microbes.
Meanwhile, Prof. Balasubramaniam said, “IIT professors are committed to societal development at various levels. This is a grassroots level project that benefits day-to-day entrepreneurs who make a living. While the institutions can develop new technologies, it is organisations such as TANSTIA that can take it from the laboratories to the grassroots.”
