CSIR-CMERI is developing a Mechanized Scavenging System, which was initiated after intensive studies of the diverse nature of Indian Sewerage Systems and the manner of its chokages. The technology is Modular in design so as to ensure customized deployment strategies as per situational requirements. The System also focuses upon Sustainable Usage of resources i.e. Water as the System sucks in Slurry Water from the choked Sewerage Systems and after adequate filtration of the same redirects the same for Clearing of Chokages using a Self-Propelling Nozzle. This, CSIR-CMERI technology provides an in-situ option for Mechanized Scavenging as well as purification of Water.
The design of the Technology is such that the Water Filtration Mechanism may be changed/modified as per the customized needs/requirements with the ability to change/redesign the Filter Media. The Vehicle-mounted Filtration Units will be able to augment and use Water from Surface Drain and Flooded Areas and purify it into Water suitable for Agricultural, Household, and Drinking Water usage.
The Drinking Water Scarcity prevalent in Flood-Affected regions can be solved to a certain by providing instantaneous and in-situ Water Purification solutions at ease. This provides a consolidated Technology Solution in a Flood-Affected region as it will be able to clear Drainage Chokages in flood-affected regions, which will help in providing an outlet for flood stagnated Water, as well as provide Water Purification solutions in Flood Disaster Zones.
Since Situational Understanding is a continuous process and requires thorough Studying throughout. This continuous Studying and Analysing Process also translated into incremental improvisation of the Technology at CSIR-CMERI. After, the development of the first Prototype, Subsequent Prototypes were developed to improve the versatility and robustness of the Technology. This Incremental Innovation approach was coupled with the deployment of the Prototypes at various places with diverse situational challenges.
