Water is necessary for life. The amount of fresh water on Earth is limited, and its quality is under constant threat as a result of rapid industrialization. The preservation of raw water quality is critical not only for drinking water supply, but also for food production and other water uses. Infectious agents, toxic chemicals, and radiological hazards can all degrade water quality.
What is the Government Guidelines for Commercial RO Manufacturers?
RO (Reverse Osmosis) is a water purification technology that employs a semi-permeable membrane. This membrane technology is not strictly speaking a filtration method. In reverse osmosis, an applied pressure is used to overcome osmotic pressure, which is a colligative property driven by chemical potential, a thermodynamic parameter. Reverse osmosis through a semi-permeable membrane can remove many different types of molecules and ions from solutions and is used in both industrial processes and potable water production. RO Plant follows the process of Reverse Osmosis.
The “Ministry of Environment” has issued regulations for RO manufacturers
It is worth noting that the National Green Tribunal previously directed the Ministry to issue a notification prohibiting the use of RO's in areas where TDS in water was less than 500 milligrams per litre, as it was discovered that lower consumption of TDS in water leads to deficiency of several important minerals in the human body.
The Water Quality Association of India, had also approached the Supreme Court, wherein the Apex Court directed the appellants to approach the Ministry and point out the material appellants have in possession against the ban imposed by NGT prohibiting the use of RO water purifiers in such areas.
By issuing the 'Regulation on Use of Water Purification System,' the Environment Ministry hopes to assist consumers in making informed decisions about what type of water purifier will be required (WPS).
According to the new regulations, each water purifier must now bear a 'conformance label,' which functions similarly to a star rating and specifies the efficiency, water rejection, and waste levels. Furthermore, all agencies and organizations involved in water supply must inform consumers about the quality of water provided as well as the TDS level through advertising and awareness campaigns.
Furthermore, an IS standard for drinking water purification systems is said to have been developed by the Bureau of Indian Standards.
