SWINGing into action
Optimising Indian waste water treatment with the SWINGS project
Water resources are scarce in India. Although sustainable and low-cost treatment technologies are available, it is necessary to demonstrate them in an Indian context. An EU consortium has been formed to help align the known waste water treatment technologies to an Indian set-up. The SWINGS project is an EU/India joint venture. DHI DK – one of the EU partners – is implementing sustainable pathogen monitoring methods in the disinfection step of waste water treatment. Thus, we are effectively contributing to sustainable and lowcost waste water management in India and consequently helping to meet rural Indian demand for safe water.
