Innovative solutions for Arsenic


Deprecated: Function get_magic_quotes_gpc() is deprecated in /home/safebillion/public_html/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 2442
Electro-Chemical Arsenic Remediation (ECAR) uses a small electric current to generate arsenic sorbent within contaminated groundwater with minimum sludge and wastage of water. Iron electrocoagulation effectively oxidizes As(III) to As(V) and achieves higher overall arsenic removal.

Innovative solutions for Fluoride


Deprecated: Function get_magic_quotes_gpc() is deprecated in /home/safebillion/public_html/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 2442
Scalable and Affordable Fluoride Removal (SAFR) uses bauxite , an abundant resource in India to remediate fluoride-contaminated groundwater. Bauxite is injected and mixed into pumped groundwater for approx. 20 minutes before entering a settling tank. This method of processing is 3X to 5X cheaper than using Activated Alumina (AA) and is a non-toxic process without leaching of aluminium during treatment.
