Water & Wastewater Treatment

Appropriate Technologies for Water & Wastewater Treatment


Globally close to 1 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water and more than 2.6 billion lack appropriate sanitation, mostly in developing countries. This has led to widespread challenges of public health and environmental pollution. Our research focuses on the development of appropriate and low cost technologies relevant at household and community levels.

  • Advance the design and performance of biosand filter technology for household water treatment
  • Biomaterials for water and wastewater treatment
  • Develop new processes for onsite wastewater treatment
