Lieberearth focusing solving most pressing areas of water

1. Drinking water and Qualitymanagement :

The Problem and Facts

  • 883 millions of global population don’t have access to safe water
  • Approximately in India 400000-500000 children die from diarrhea annually
  • Around 90% stomach related diseases happen because of contaminated water
  • Drinking water quality plays an important role to reduce the morbidity by up to 40% due to water borne diseases like Diarrhoea
  • Today, the basic necessity of pure water is taken away from the lives of 100 crore people.
  • Statistics show that every one person in six has no means for pure water
  • 80% of different diseases are caused by consumption of contaminated water
  • It is noted that  huge chunk of rural community income goes into the treatment of water borne diseases caused to the presence of bacteria, virus, pathogens and other impure substances in the drinking water.
  • Approximately 80% of rural illness, 21% of transmissible diseases and 20% of deaths of children are directly linked to unsafe water.
  • Solution of drinking water Problem for millions and ending water borne diseases for thousands of children
  • India occupies 2 percent of the world’s land area, represents 16 percent of the world population and 15 percent of livestock, whereas it has only 4 percent of the water resources of the world.
  • Furthermore, India ranks 133rd out of 180 nations for its water availability and 120th out of 122 nations for its water quality. It has been evaluated that 80 percent of India’s surface is polluted which results in India losing US$ 6 billion every year due to water-related diseases. Challenges faced by the Indian water sectorare due to increasing water consumption and wastage in urban areas, water-borne diseases, industrial growth, political and regulatory disputes, water cycle imbalances, increasing irrigation and agricultural demand, lack of technology, etc. According to estimates, India’s water sector requires investment worth US$ 13 billion.

Arsenic and Fluoride : 1.47 Crore of Indian population still drinking arsenic and fluoride contaminated water (including other geogenic and pathogenic contaminants consisting of total 163 million affected rural population) which cause premature death of children’s and adults in rural underserved areas.

Solution : Not only technological sustainability but along with including Socio economical engineering solution along with health data can solve this problem sustainably. 

Estimated Risk of Arsenic in Drinkin Water

High salinity in Ground Water:

Map of groundwater salinity levels throughout India

Solution of  High salinity in ground water : Solving high saline ground water problem across the country by the most advanced Magnetic  ion trap technology which is cost effective , 99.7 % water recovery without removing essential minerals and replacing RO.

  • pH, Oxidation reduction potential, temperature, Total dissolved salts, Antibiotic resistant gene concentration, inhibitory & sub-inhibitory concentrations of heavy metals and trace elements are crucial parameters in drinking water quality and its role in shaping the intestinal micro-biome, consequently modifying the ecology of gut micro flora
  • Extensive research work carried out in past by many research groups to link gut health with diet but still the link between the microbiota and drinking water quality is not well defined.
  • Antibiotic resistance gene contamination : Most of the water treatment technologies has given less attentation to verify Antibiotic registrant gene presence in drinking water even after water treatment as a result. Various studies have reported that drinking water chlorination and UV treatment could contribute to the enrichment of Antibiotic Resistant Genes (ARGs), hence it is crucial to investigate potential risks associated with ARGs in shaping the gut micro flora towards diseased state.
  • pH & Oxidation reduction potential (ORP) : Although the direct effect of pH on alimentary tract tissues is not well studied, it is assumed that pH of drinking water may affect only the tissues of the upper alimentary tract. o far it has not been well documented the role of drinking water that has a low or negative Oxidation reduction potential (ORP) has any potential role in shaping intestinal micro flora towards health or disease.
  • Heavy metal in gut health : Exposures to metal compounds have been shown to alter the diversity and composition of the gut micro flora. For example, in one study, either cadmium or lead in drinking water alter mouse gut micro flora by increasing Lachnospiraceae abundance , while a different study found that cadmium in water increased growth of Bacteroidetes relative to Firmicutes in mice Huge research is needed to comprehensively understand the functional complexity of intestinal microbes linking drinking water quality to health outcomes with gut microbial participation in mind.

Micro-Organism Removal: We use latest technology and nature based solution to kill all 250 kinds of microorganism from water

Others : Apart from that Uranium, Chromium, boron, Nitrate, heavy metal contamination is common in many natural water bodies and industrial water bodies.

2. Source water Sustainability:

Drought and Water unavailability is one of the biggest challenges in India even though we have highest rain fall. Unsustainable catchment management and poor infiltration rate and high evaporation rate has made the situation worst. Climate change has impacted the uncertainty in rainfall.

3. Non-Revenue Water (NRW) : 
  • NRW varies between 30% and 50% in Indian cities. This calls for introduction of new metering solutions, equipment and automated processes to assess, monitor and control NRW.
  • Smart Cities Mission and the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) focus on reducing NRW.
  • Metering, instrumentation, equipment supply has a business potential of around $32 billion in India.
4. Irrigation system : 
  • More than 80% of available water resources in India is being currently utilized for irrigation purposes where, the average water use efficiency of irrigation projects is assessed to be only of the order of 30-35%.
  • Innovative methods including; sprinkler, cloud-based micro-irrigation system, drip irrigation, rainwater harvesting, etc., are being adopted to reduce water usage. 
  • Using modern brone based and GPS based technology and traditional practices the water usages efficiency need to be increased
  • By promoting Hydroponics, aqua phonics, controlled agriculture the water and soil usage can be reduced 80% to 95% by recycling and reusing the water
5. Water Supply & Distribution : 
  • India receives an average annual rainfall of 1170 mm, but stores only 6% of rainwater. (Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation)
  • Water levels in 91 major reservoirs of India are at 25% capacity — 30% lower than last year, and 25% less than the average storage in a decade (Central Water Commission)
  • India will have a water deficit of 50% by 2030 (Asian Development Bank)
  • Unplanned water supply and distribution via pipe water cause 34% of water loose and water contamination is add on is wastage of billions of dollar. Indian need to shift to decentralize distribution.
6. Wastewater Treatment : 
  • India’s total water and sanitation sector is worth $420 million, with an annual growth rate of 18% (World Bank).
  • Almost 80% of water supply flows back into the ecosystem as wastewater.
  • Currently, India has the capacity to treat approximately 37% of its wastewater, or 22,963 million litres per day (MLD), against a daily sewage generation of approximately 61,754 MLD from more than 900 sewage treatment plants, according to the 2015 report of the Central Pollution Control Board.
  • Using magnetic trap technology to treat all contaminants from waste water which produce non hazardous sludge  
7. Solar-powered water supply : 
  • In 2014, the Government of India announced a target to install 1 million solar water pumps, equivalent to approximately 3,000 MW, for irrigation and drinking water by 2021.
  • As of January 2018, 142,000 solar pumps have been deployed in India.
  • More than 50 per cent of these pumps have been deployed in Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan.
8. Government Initiatives : 
  • Several initiatives have been undertaken by the government to deal with the water and sanitation crisis looming ahead of India.
  • 2014- Five-year NamamiGangeProgramme focuses on cleaning the Ganga
  • 2015- Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT)
  • 2017- National Water Quality Sub Mission on Arsenic and Fluoride to provide safe drinking water to about 28,000 affected habitations in the country by March 2021 with an outlay of INR250 billion.
  • 2017- ‘HarGhar Jal’ (water in every household) was another scheme with a mission to provide piped drinking water supply to all households by 2030.
  • A universal dashboard to evaluate and record all the schemes and water production ans usages and intake and wastes rate via seniors installation in all equipment to Work closely with government body from ground level to policy level through online water data recorded and collection, project execution of all schemes based on the analysis of all the data collected.
