Multi Grade Sand Filter Activated Charcoal Filter Micron Filter Reverse Osmosis Module UV Radiation Pump High Pressure Pump Purified Water Reject Water Raw Water Treatment Process TECHNOLOGY Reverse Osmosis + UV radiation Treatment
BUSINESS MODEL A 500 LPH Capacity plant caters to a community of 500-700 households. Plant capacity is arrived at based on the cluster size. The plant takes raw water and electricity connection with the help of local body – AMC Water is priced at Rs.0.30 per liter (Ex plant) OPEX mainly covers Operators salary, power bill, consumables and plant maintenance CAPEX is arranged by EPGL-EFL from/through their own sources through philanthropy or contributed by us on our own.
