Nashik: An ozonation technology will be used on experimental basis to process waste water being released from sewage treatment plant at Tapovan and Ramwadi nullah to reduce Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) level in Godavari river.
A meeting of sub-committee which has been formed to address Godavari pollution issue was held in the first week of December to take stock of Godavari pollution related works.
Nagpur-based Ozone Research and Application Pvt Ltd gave a presentation regarding reduction in BOD level in the waste water which is being released from sewage treatment plant and to reduce pollution level in Godavari river. The technology will be used to purify that waste water which is being released from STP.
The waste water which is being released into Godavari river from STP at Tapovan and sewage water in a nullah at Ramwadi will be processed using ozonation technology. Ozonation technology is currently used at Surat and Varanasi to reduce BOD level there. The technology would be used elsewhere, if the experiment succeeds.
