For exactly 10 years, at IFAT 2008, the first contacts have been made with large Indian companies. Indian policymakers have begun to implement the necessary environmental protection measures with ambitious programmes. The treatment of wastewater from municipalities and industry was and is a central aspect of these programmes. Shortly after IFAT Munich, the first mutual visits were organized and intensive cooperation talks were held. As a result, the construction of the first large sewage treatment plants with the MADE IN GERMANY design and technology began just one year later.The mostly missing sewage systems in the older districts are created with a lot of manual work and patience.
Today we support one of India's largest environmental projects with our technology. The task of this project is nothing less than the gigantic challenge of cleaning the Ganges.
The "Ganga", the Indian name of the Ganges, is river and living goddess at the same time. According to Hindu belief, water purifies body and mind. It is also used as holy water and medicine. Every Hindu therefore wants to immerse himself in the holy water of the Ganges once in his life to wash away his sins. However, the purifying water is anything but clean: pesticides, bacteria and toxic chemicals have been polluting the Ganges for decades.
