NIT Andhra Pradesh researchers develop technology for removal of pollutants from water
A scaled-up version of this work can provide a sustainable solution for the removal of pollutants, particularly textile effluents, from water systems and provide clean water
NIT Andhra Pradesh researchers secured the second place for this research at Avishkaar-2022, an innovation contest for students conducted by Andhra Pradesh Council of Science and Technology (APCOST) in collaboration with the AICTE

Researchers from the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Andhra Pradesh have developed a technology that can help remove textile industrial pollutants from water bodies, the institute said in a statement recently.
“The key challenge towards the treatment of textile dye effluent is the presence of salts and high concentration of dyes which interferes with the process of degradation. It is beneficial if a technology is developed by using the salts which are innately present in the effluent. By keeping this as the strategical point, the team has developed an advanced oxidation Process which works well in the high saline conditions towards the complete removal of textile dyes,” said VC Padmanaban, assistant professor at the Department of Biotechnology, NIT Andhra Pradesh.
