Story so far: Boson White Water is a water utility company that converts sewage treatment plant (STP) water into high-quality potable water. It has been selected for β€˜India Water Pitch-Pilot-Scale Start-Up Challenge’ carried out by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA).

  • The company aims to change the way in which wastewater is recycled from malls, industries, IT Parks and apartment communities.
  • It converts STPs into high-quality water that can be used for household purposes, centralised air conditioning and even for drinking.

Technology: The Boson WhiteWater (BWW) System is an 11-stage filtration system that reduces physical, chemical and biological contaminants present in water. The first four stages reduce the odour, Iron and turbidity in the water while the next two stages reduce organic contaminants.
