Dnyaneshwar Nemade, GM Engineering of a Sandvik group company grappled with a conventional sewage treatment plant at his tooling plant in Pune. Bore wells are his only
source of water and it was a shame to discard the water after use. So when Thermax installed a 100 KLD compact system with UV to treat wastewater, Mr. Nemade was able
to recycle the water for flushing, cleaning and cooling, and reduce its hardness.
Sakharam Ghogare, another happy customer from Reliance Industries who oversees sewage treatment at the company’s housing colony at Chunabhatti, Mumbai says, “At
Rs. 79 per cubic metre, the cost of water in Mumbai is spiralling. We are pleased with Thermax’s Biocask which treats sewage from our 1000 flats for flushing and for gardening.”
Experiences like these from more than 45 customers underline Biocask’s success. And as it travels en route a seven-city road show, it is being promoted to many more builders, architects, consultants and industries. Untreated sewage is one of the worse pollutants
of surface and ground water with cities dumping 70-80% of it in water bodies. Moreover,
the paradox of reduced supply of per capita fresh water, ever increasing sewage generation, and poor treatment facilities is a looming environmental crisis.
“Decentralised treatment plants like Biocask play an important role in meeting the challenge of space requirement. It can easily fit in a 3.5 m basement, making it a very viable option,” says Vishal Mehra of WWS.
Biocask is a cost-effective, plugand-play sewage treatment and recycle product with minimal civil work at site. It can be placed in the basements of housing societies,
IT parks, commercial complexes, hotels and small industrial units.
Treated sewage can be utilised for certain industrial applications, gardening, flushing, cleaning, etc.
The road show kicked off by the WWS team from the Pune factory traveled to Hyderabad, Chennai, Visakhapatnam, Bhubaneswar, Kolkatta and Siliguri. The division
tied up with a radio channel to promote the event across major cities.
