TWIST synergies with Saraswati 2.0 project

CENTA is involved in Saraswati 2.0 project “Identifying the best technologies for decentralized wastewater treatment and resource recovery in India”, where synergies with TWIST Spanish Living Lab are being prespectived.

Last week a meeting was held between ITT Kharagpur, project coordinator, and CENTA to resume work related to the Pilot 6 system in Kharagpur.

The meeting, in which the Andalusian Public Foundation Centre for New Water Technologies (CENTA) participated as the partner responsible for the design, focused on the resumption of work related to the Pilot 6 system (pilot design) that will be implemented in Kharagpur and in the initiation of the tasks to carry out the environmental risk analysis of the pilot system.

More about Saraswati 2.0 project

The Saraswati 2.0 project “Identifying the best technologies for decentralized wastewater treatment and resource recovery in India” is a collaborative project between Europe and India funded by the H2020 program and the Government of India, whose main objective is the identification of the best key enabling technologies for decentralized wastewater treatment and resource recovery and reuse in India.

Eighteen partners from Europe and India participate in the project. This project continues the actions undertaken in the Saraswati project, which was developed between 2012 and 2017. To do this, 10 pilots will be designed and built in different locations in India, taking into account local conditions and needs and technical, legal, environmental and social aspects.

Additionally, a common strategy for monitoring pilot technologies will be defined and a complete evaluation of their performance, as well as their total sustainability, will be carried out, with the aim of identifying the best key enabling technologies for the Indian context.
