Transdot all set to ‘clean up’ KeralaOctober 7th, 2008 - 3:20 pm ICT by IANS
Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 7 (IANS) Into a decade of starting its sewage treatment division, city-based Transdot is all set to ‘clean up’ Kerala using its latest membrane bio-reactor (MBR) process, considered to be the most advanced waste water treatment technology.Speaking to reporters here Tuesday, after revealing its treatment plant using MBR process mounted on a four wheeler, chief of Transdot M.R. Narayanan said the company has booked a string of orders from within the country and abroad.
“This new MBR process combines suspended growth biological process with ultra filtration membrane system. We have treatment plants which have a capacity ranging between 25 KL and 500 KL and the price ranges from Rs.400,000 to Rs.5 million,” said Narayanan.
Over the years, the company has set up its treatment plants at 107 locations in the country and five in the Maldives and Sri Lanka.
Transdot’s waste water solutions ensure treated water that conforms to norms laid down by the Pollution Control Board (PCB) as well as major international agencies.
“Once treated, we get water to 85 percent of total treated quantity which can be used in toilets as also for gardening purposes. The water quality in our MBR process when compared to conventional treatment plants is far superior,” said Narayanan, who co-owns the premier floating resorts (Poovar Island Resorts) near Kovalam beach.
Last fiscal, the company earned a revenue of Rs.3 crore and in the next three years, using the latest MBR technology, it expects to do a business of Rs.15 crore.
Already Transdot plants are installed in several plush resorts and the company has orders from the real estate sector too.
“We already have one plant at Kumarakom which treats 90,000 liters of waste collected from the houseboats. Another one is coming up at Alappuzha. The treated water is then let out to the environment,” added Narayanan.
