An innovative technology for “Drinking Water Disinfection System” with trade name “Oneer” has been developed by Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Indian Institute of Toxicology Research (CSIR-IITR), Lucknow.
CSIR-Indian Institute of Toxicology Research (CSIR-IITR), Lucknow, a constituent laboratory of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), was established in 1965. It is the only institute of toxicology in the country contributing towards cutting-edge research and innovation in toxicology. It is working to mitigate problems of human health and environment.
It has following objectives:
According to the World Health Organization, "access to safe drinking-water is essential to health, a basic human right and a component of effective policy for health protection”. But, currently, a large proportion of India's rural community is consuming water that does not meet the WHO drinking water quality standards. It is well known that infection through drinking water results in an increase in morbidity and mortality particularly amongst children. The developed technology will enhance the quality of life of common people. It will be helpful especially for rural people since it can be solar powered. At economy front, it is also in line with the ‘Make in India’ mission.
