Daiki Axis to provide Johkasou Tech for Namami Gange Project in U’khand


By Our Staff Reporter

Dehradun, 20 Jul: Daiki Axis, a leading provider of decentralised wastewater treatment solutions, is set to contribute its state-of-the-art Johkasou technology to the Namami Gange project, a flagship initiative of the Government of India aimed at rejuvenating the River Ganga. Johkasou is designed to meet the highest standards of water quality while minimising environmental impact.

The Ministry of Environment, Japan, has signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) to implement innovative technologies for effective wastewater treatment and management as part of the Namami Gange Project.

The Namami Gange programme has recently achieved global recognition as one of the best water restoration projects.

Scheduled for commissioning in 2023-24, a total of nine projects are being undertaken currently, at four different locations covering both Kumaon and Garhwal regions primarily to treat untreated domestic wastewater currently being discharged in the rivers. The treated water will meet CPCB standards and the latest NGT guidelines for the discharge of sewage-treated water to rivers. All of the products are manufactured locally under Make in India.  Daiki Axis India will play a pivotal role as the technology provider, supplying and implementing the advanced Johkasou STPs. These projects will demonstrate the state-of-the-art Johkasou technology and the concept of decentralised treatment of wastewater.

The Uttarakhand Peyjal Nigam, as the main owner of the project from the side of the Uttarakhand Government, will oversee the implementation and operation of these projects. IIT Roorkee will be evaluating the compliance of design to Indian standards and best engineering practices currently being followed in such projects.

According to Kamal Tiwari, CEO of Daiki Axis India Private Limited, “By highlighting the paradigm shift from traditional centralised Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) to decentralised wastewater management systems, we embrace a forward-thinking approach. With a focus on decentralised systems, we unlock numerous advantages, including lower costs, simplified implementation and reduced complexities surrounding land space and disputes. By treating water efficiently and responsibly at its source, we pave the way for a brighter and more resilient future.”

Johkasou Technology provides the opportunity to replace outdated conventional systems such as septic tanks and soak pits, etc., which were identified as one of the key reasons behind the Joshimath Disaster and the source of contamination of downstream drinking water sources.
