Water pollution has become a monumental problem which needs immediate attention and remedial action today. Indeed the supply of clean and safe water has been a challenge; contamination of water because of hazardous heavy metal ions, pathogens and dyes has made things even worse. All of these contaminants are potent environment and health degrading elements.

Water treatment by means of technologies such as membrane separation, ion-exchange, reverse osmosis, oxidation, photocatalysis and adsorption is currently in practice. Among the existing systems of water treatment, adsorption is proposed to be the most viable approach for water treatment owing to its ease of operation, high efficacy, economical and eco-friendliness. Innumerous solid sorbents have been explored for treating heavy metals, dyes, pesticides and pathogens present in polluted water. Activated carbon made from various resources has been the primary material used for sorption of contaminants. Even though activated carbon is recognized as a universal adsorbent for treating wastewater, there are several limitations like high cost and high energy consumption. Hence, it is necessary to develop other low-cost and sustainable adsorbents.

Provision for the supply of safe drinking water in rural India, with about 1.42 million habitations and millions of water sources, is an amazing task. Due to the logistical problems and inadequate water quality testing infrastructure, generation of reliable water quality data on regular basis has been an acknowledged problem. Monitoring and surveillance of water quality on regular basis, has the objective of protecting the water sources to the greatest extent possible. When contamination occurs, effective quality testing provides early warning, which permits interventions aimed at reducing/ or eliminating undesirable constituent to the acceptable level.

In order to overcome these issues research is addressed towards Development of – Low-cost & eco-friendly adsorbents by simple methods using precipitation, sol-gel and hydrothermal techniques. – Cost-effective field testing kit for the detection of key elements in drinking water. Towards exploring new low-cost and eco-friendly adsorbents, the group has developed metal oxide and their composites, graphene composites, plant protein-layer double hydroxide composites, cellulose nanocomposites, carbon spheres and activated carbon derived from various bio resources etc. Many of these nanomaterials/composites show exceptional adsorption towards metal ions, dyes and pathogens removal from contaminated water.

Combination of spectroscopy, electrochemistry and microscopic techniques were used to understand the material synthesis and water purification mechanism. Ultimately the gained experience is used to develop low cost community based water filters for rural households.

Typical image showing, multifunctional composite of Fe2O3 and ZnO synthesized by hydrothermal method was used for Cr(VI) removal and to study antioxidant and antibacterial properties. The composite was found to eliminate about 97% of Cr(VI) from the solution of concentration range 5-20 mg/L. Additionally, Fe2O3-ZnO composite displayed useful character of antioxidant property by inhibiting 12% of DPPH free radicals.The Fe2O3-ZnO composite killed more than 99 % of Staphylococcus aureus from water.

Furthering these ongoing studies the team is also working on the development of multiparameter water quality test kits to measure physical, chemical and microbiological contaminants in the water. This kit can be used as a standard tool to collect information from various water sources. Water quality test kits are ideal for engineers, water treatment professionals; and building services and facilities management specialists involved in water testing applications including potable water, industrial process systems, boilers and cooling systems, swimming pools, and wastewater treatment.

1. Multipurpose adsorbents with exceptional adsorption capacity

Adsorbents developed for the removal of heavy metal ions, dyes and pathogens

The developed hierarchically assembled nanostructured metal oxides, grapheme nanocomposites, polymer functionalized hydroxides, carbon sphere, open ended hollow carbon and other structured carbon based materials derived from various bio-sources have exceptional adsorption capacity and are capable of removing heavy metals and dyes including some of the pathogens from the wastewater. Many of the above materials also act as good photocatalysts for the degradation of azodyes.

2. Domestic Water Filters for Rural Community


Domestic water filters

The ultimate objective of our research is to develop low-cost community based water filters for rural population using locally available cheap materials such as sand or bio-carbons. In this direction, the team has developed certain low-cost water filters such as slow sand filters, ceramic water filters and nanomaterials based gravity filters in collaboration with industries.
