CSIR develops affordable Water Disinfection System “OneerTM”

Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Indian Institute of Toxicology Research (CSIR-IITR), Lucknow has developed an innovative technology for “Drinking Water Disinfection System” with Trade name “OneerTM” which was transferred to M/s Bluebird Water Purifier. It is useful for the continuous treatment of water and eliminates all disease-causing pathogens such as a virus, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and cyst to provide safe drinking water to domestic and communities settings as per National and International standards prescribed for potable water (BIS, WHO etc.).

It is useful for the continuous treatment of water and eliminates all disease-causing pathogens such as a virus, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and cyst to provide safe drinking water to domestic and communities settings as per National and International standards prescribed for potable water (BIS, WHO etc.).

According to the World Health Organization, “access to safe drinking water is essential to health, a basic human right and a component of effective policy for health protection”.

However, currently, a large proportion of India’s rural community is consuming water that does not meet the WHO drinking water quality standards. And infection through drinking water results in an increase in morbidity and mortality, particularly amongst children.

Oneer developed by CSIR-IITR will provide access to safe and clean drinking water at a cost of just 2 Paise / Ltr. The Community-level model is of 450 LPH capacity which can be scaled up to 5000 to 1 lakh L/day and is also maintenance and membrane free. The technology will be helpful especially for rural people since it can be solar powered.
