Madras is just about to release a water purifier using nanotechnology. "Technology used in the product is the very first and is home-grown. No nanoparticle based water filter exists in the world as of now," says Dr T. Pradeep, Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Sophisticated Analytical Instrument Facility, Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM).
The filter uses technology developed by IITM, and is to be released by Eureka Forbes Ltd. It removes pesticides from drinking water by an unusual chemistry utilising metal nanoparticles, one learns. "There are several other nanotechnology efforts, but none have gone all the way to the market," explains Dr Pradeep, in a recent interaction with Business Line.
