Published on 6 May, 2016 at 7:41 pm By

Indian scientists have come up with a system that can make sea water potable and safe for use. This development will help to produce 6.3 litres of water everyday and will be a boon to several drought hit states in India.

Scientists of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre have built a pilot plant at Tamil Nadu’s Kalpakkam, that use waste steam from a nuclear reactor to purify the seawater.

The scientists have also developed a filtration method, which will make ground water (high on Uranium and arsenic) safe for drinking purpose.



Several such plants have been installed in Punjab, as well as West Bengal, Rajasthan, according to KN Vyas, Director, Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Mumbai.

Several membranes have also been developed by BARC that can produce purified drinking water out of groundwater contaminated by uranium or arsenic, at a meager cost.
