Eco Friendly Water Purifier through UV+RO in Rural Areas

Yogesh Kumar Sharma, Nisha Verma


A study on the performance of raw water or tap water purifier was conducted between January to May in 2016. The Raw water or tap water was treated through the “advanced biotech techniques” i.e., solar panel TDS meter, UV lamp, RO membrane, TDS controller and UF (Ultra filtration). It was observed that raw water or tap water is more unhygienic which is very harmful for us. RO membrane and UV lamp showed maximum removal of water contaminants. UF membrane have been removed the contamination in water in the size of microns. When we have put the TDS meter in raw water level it has given the level of purity in water. We are using solar energy because in rural areas the amount of electricity is not sufficient. We developed a “Low Cost Water Purification Technique” using the basic ideas of Slow Sand Filter, some locally available filter material like charcoal, bone char, sand, manganese modified sand, clay, rice husk, banana residue ash, anthracite and tried to improve the methodology using the UV Filter, RO Filter, and Activated Carbon Filter mechanism.
