GE, Thermax to Pursue Indian Wastewater Treatment Market

Thermax will supply GE’s ultrafiltration and MBR technologies for Indian applications

GE Water USA and Thermax, a global provider of energy and environmental management products and services, have formed a partnership to pursue opportunities in India’s water and wastewater treatment market.

Under the partnership’s first initiative, Thermax will supply GE Water’s ultrafiltration and membrane bioreactor (MBR) technologies for wastewater treatment and reuse and process water treatment applications in India’s commercial and institutional sectors.

“Today, India treats less than 15% of its wastewater before it is discharged into precious water resources,” said M.S. Unnikrishnan, managing director of Thermax, in a press release. “Through this agreement with GE, a world-class technology provider, Thermax can now provide customers with a reliable and efficient water reuse system that is well suited for decentralized wastewater treatment and reuse.”
