IIT-Kanpur has developed a new approach for wastewater treatment

Using the uniform cubical nano-adsorbent is good for the environment because it can be used again. It is also bactericidal and has a lot of different layers.

It would make it easier to remove antibiotic-resistant and metal-resistant bacteria from water that other bacteria have contaminated. The new technology can be used to clean up water pollution and other health problems.

Key Highlight:

  • For wastewater treatment, IIT-Kanpur developed an innovative nano-adsorbent
  • This nano-adsorbent could help quickly remove antibiotic-resistant and metal-resistant microorganisms from polluted water.
  • The homogeneous cubical nano-adsorbent is eco-friendly, reusable, bactericidal, and multi-layered.
  • ARBs can be deactivated and separated from water by nano adsorbents produced at IIT-Kanpur.
  • Sinha said these nano-adsorbents could be utilized in membrane filters shortly.

The IIT-Kanpur has made a new nano-adsorbent that can be used to clean up wastewater.

This nano-adsorbent could be used to remove antibiotic-resistant and metal-resistant bacteria from polluted water simply and quickly.

In the department of Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Archana Raichur and Dr. Niraj Sinha worked on the project.

The uniform cubical nano-adsorbent is eco-friendly, reusable, bactericidal, and multi-layered. It will help remove harmful bacteria from water by removing them one at a time.

It’s a big change from the way nano-adsorbents are made now. They’ve been used to clean up polluted water and improve the health of people who live near water.

Prof. Abhay Karandikar, the Director of IIT-K, said: “Water pollution is one of the many environmental problems that the world is facing right now.” In the end, it directly affects the health of both people and animals. At IIT-Kanpur, we do a lot of research in nanotechnology, and this invention is proof of that fact. This important invention in the form of these new nano-adsorbents would stop water pollution, but it would also be a huge help to humanity.

According to Raichur, the water contaminated by drugs and medicines is getting more common now.

Nanoparticles are being used to cut down on water pollution caused by new, unknown pollutants. Water is cleaner when nanoparticles are used to remove pollutants.

In addition to water pollution, Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a big public health problem that could make it hard to treat bacterial infections.

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria can spread in both community and hospital settings.

At IIT-Kanpur, they made nano adsorbents with special physical and chemical properties. They can kill and separate bacteria resistant to antibiotics from water.

Sinha said that the new technology could be used to improve water filtration and remove pathogens and bacteria from drinking water. Because it doesn’t have any side effects and is safe for the human body, it can be used to fight off microorganisms.

Sinha said these nano-adsorbents could be used in membrane filters shortly. Sinha said they could also be used in bio-remediation, which is ready to be sold.
