Tarun Nanda of Evolve is making efforts to construct wetlands and earthworms as an ETP (effluent treatment plant) for restaurants after seeking permission form the Delhi Pollution Control Committee 

The search is on for restaurants looking to be the the first in Delhi to use this technology. It will be cheaper to build, cheaper and easier to operate and use less energy than a conventional machine.

Due to the negligible running costs, the facility is much more likely to be kept operational, thereby relieving the burden on existing large ETPs in the city and help to reduce the pollution of the Yamuna.

Please get in touch if you, or someone you know, might be interested, it will be good for them, good for me, good for you and good for Delhi if we can reduce the pollution of our water bodies with a cost effective sustainable solution.
