Durgapur based Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CMERI) has transferred four indigenously developed Water Purification Technologies to three prominent Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) engaged in the Water Purification domain in the presence of Prof Harish Hirani, Director, CSIR-CMERI. The MSME partners hailed the indigenously developed Water Purification technologies as a major stepping stone towards Self-Reliance and Import-Substitution.
Prof Harish Hirani on this occasion shared, “There is a huge scarcity of Water across the Globe and it is more so for drinking water. CSIR-CMERI is focused upon Research & development of Affordable Water Purification Technologies, because the penetration of these technologies to the rural regions of the country is the utmost significance and it can be effectively achieved only when we forge a partnership with the MSMEs. The MSME partners can also tremendously benefit by availing the Government Marketing Promotion Schemes, to reach out to our immediate neighbouring countries and African Nations.”
Sourav Ganguly, M/s Zenith Aquatech, Howrah, shared, “The already transferred CSIR-CMERI Water Technologies has had tremendous Market Response. The CSIR-CMERI indigenously developed Water Purification Technologies are much more effective and affordable than imported technologies already being used by the Company. These technologies are reliable & authentic owing to the technical assurance of brand CMERI. The CMERI technologies are playing a crucial role in promoting the Jal Jeevan Mission of the Government of India and can be one of the most prominent factors in achieving water sufficiency for the nation.”
Sumit Mukherjee, M/s TECHNOCHEM, Barasat, shared, “When compared with imported technologies, the CSIR-CMERI developed high flow rate arsenic removal technology is more affordable and sustainable. The Raw Materials are easily available and low maintenance. Numerous regional projects in Bihar have been successfully implemented using CSIR-CMERI Water Technologies. CSIR-CMERI developed water purification technologies that are purely society-centric and the profit-motive of the MSMEs.
Jatin Ahuja of M/s HES Water Engineers (India), shared, “After 16 years in the domain of large-scale Water Purification, we are hereby forging a partnership with CSIR-CMERI, owing to the Market Stature that it is steadily gaining in the domain of Water Purification. The Technology initiatives of CSIR-CMERI will help achieve Atma Nirbharta in the truest sense and we MSMEs are enthusiastic to partner in this progress.”
