IIT Kanpur Team Develops Novel Nano Adsorbent Technology For Purification Of Polluted Water

  17 March 2022

Kanpur : In a path-breaking development to address the problems of rising pathogens and waterborne diseases due to antibiotic & metal-resistant bacteria, Dr. Archana Raichur and Dr. Niraj Sinha from the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Kanpur have invented a novel Nano-Adsorbent having applications in Waste Water Treatment. The Nano Adsorbent would help in selective removal of anti-biotic and metal resistant bacteria from polluted water with a rapid method to synthesize.

The uniform cubical Nano-adsorbent is eco-friendly, reusable, bactericidal, and multi-layered, and is functionalized for selective removal of harmful bacteria from water. It is a significant development with regards to the current methodologies used to synthesize Nano-adsorbents that have been researched in recent years for waste water treatment to address water pollution and related health concerns.
