India is under water stress because by 2030, demand will almost certainly outpace supply. This is a very pressing issue, which begs the question of how India can develop a reliable water infrastructure.
Few people are aware that wastewater can be consistently converted into usable water. Modern wastewater treatment technology which can provide safe and reusable water, fortunately make the procedure, considerably quicker.
What are the Ultraviolet solutions for ETPs and wastewater reuse?
Governments all across the world are implementing various policies, funding several initiatives, and enacting legislation to save water. An example of this is that since ancient times, carbohydrates have been fermented to produce ethanol. After sufficient processing, ethanol can be blended with gasoline.
Anhydrous ethanol, or ethanol without water, can be mixed in varied amounts with gasoline to cut down on the usage of petroleum-based fuels, and lower air pollution. An economical solution to combating climate change at a time when gas costs are rapidly rising, is to mix ethanol into car fuel, thus saving other costs and resources.
What is an effluent treatment plant (ETP)?
Almost, every sector of the economy uses water, including the pharmaceutical, chemical, automotive, textile, food processing, electrical and electronics, hospitality, and the list goes on. Water is contaminated by chemical, physical, organic, and biological effluents, which render it inappropriate for direct release into the environment.
Industrial wastewater is processed through an Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) to eliminate the aforementioned effluents, and make the wastewater suitable for reuse or disposal. Additionally, ETPs are frequently utilized in ZLD (Zero Liquid Discharge) facilities, which further reduce the need for fresh water in industries, and protect the environment.
Disinfection of wastewater in ETPs
After primary, secondary, and occasionally tertiary wastewater treatment, disinfection occurs.
The process of removing biological contaminants from the treated water is typically the last step. Disinfection reduces the amount of bacteria and microorganisms to acceptable levels, which prevents the spread of waterborne diseases.
Secondary wastewater treatment
Prior to being released into the environment, wastewater must be cleaned due to its high microbiological contamination levels. Although, some of the burden is reduced by current membrane-based wastewater treatment procedures, like MBRs, the most widely used technologies for disinfecting wastewater include, chlorine and ultraviolet irradiation (UV).
What are the issues with chlorine disinfection?
The issue with chlorine is that it doesn't offer enough defence against viruses, and microorganisms like Cryptosporidium, which are resistant to chlorine.
Additionally, it damages structures and plants by causing corrosion, which shortens the useful plant life and raises the overall cost. Also, it changes the pH of the water, rendering it unusable for reuse in irrigation.
By-products of chlorine disinfection
Trihalomethanes and other harmful chlorine by-products have been linked to human cancer. Recycled wastewater and these cancer-causing substances enter the subsoil and water table, when utilized for gardening. You run the danger of developing cancer when this water is utilized for drinking, and pumped through bore-wells.
Additionally, water that contains more than 5 mg/l of chlorine damages most plants severely, and should not be used for gardening or landscaping without first being de-chlorinated. The natural, chemical-free approach of UV wastewater disinfection yields no trihalomethanes or carcinogens.
Alternate disinfection techniques
Governments all over the world are promoting the adoption of alternate disinfection techniques, due to the potential negative effects of chlorination. It has long been understood that UV (ultraviolet) disinfection is a potent disinfectant.
What is UV disinfection?
UV is non-toxic and does not produce any disinfection by-products, in contrast to chlorine. The knowledge base and installed base of UV disinfection plants have multiplied, during the past two decades.
Using well-designed UV intensity sensors and monitors, UV disinfection of wastewater may be observed in real-time, and is safe and non-toxic. These systems are made for peak flow rates and lowest UVT (UV transmission) of wastewater, since the presence of suspended debris, oily compounds, and humic acids all absorb UV-C radiation in wastewater.
The performance of the reactor is also impacted by other aspects, such as UV lamp kinds, UV reactor hydraulic design, and others.

Why use Netsol Water UV Systems for Industrial Wastewater Treatment or Wastewater Disinfection?
The use of UV technology to disinfect water has gained popularity all around the world. The primary reason for this is that UV disinfection is more cost-effective than traditional chlorination, and it is chosen for a variety of disinfection applications, including process water and wastewater.
With us, go green!
An international problem has been brought about by the unchecked discharge, of chlorinated chemicals into the environment. We employ eco-friendly UV technology for industrial wastewater treatment and wastewater disinfection, in line with trends in developed nations and as a responsible step, towards protecting the environment.
Operational and logistical challenges are brought on by chlorine disinfection, including recurrent purchase, storage, handling, dilution, and mixing. It needs continual care and attention. The UV wastewater disinfection system uses no chemicals, operates automatically, needs no supervision, and requires no up-keep.
Liquid chlorine, also known as sodium hypochlorite, is expensive due to its high running and handling expenses. The payback periods for UV wastewater treatment systems are typically under two years, making them economically advantageous.
