Introducing the indigenously developed ‘Vehicle-mounted Drain Cleaning System, Harish Hirani, Director, CSIR-CMERI, said on Tuesday that this is the ‘beginning of a new chapter in collaborative business model’, adding that it forges the specialised expertise of government technology institutions, ministries, manufacturers and agencies to develop a seamless economic framework for time-bound and efficient delivery of impactful products to the society.
CSIR-CMERI on Tuesday handed over the non-exclusive rights for technology know-how of the indigenously developed ‘Vehicle-mounted Drain Cleaning System’ to MANIAR & CO, Ahmedabad. The system is a mechanised scavenging system consisting of 3 modules — recycled slurry water unit, closed loop feedback system, and post cleaning inspection system.
Congratulating the initiative, V.K. Chaurasia, Joint Advisor, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, said the deployment of the technology in the society through the various civic administration agencies across the nation will resolve the huge challenge associated with ‘eradication of manual scavenging’ from Bharat.
Chaurasia said the adoption of the technology across the nation will help create ‘regional manufacturing hubs’, which will consequently help drastically improve the employment scenario and economic prospects across the nation.
Besides, the CSIR-CMERI Municipal Solid Waste Management Technology also holds the potential to be the ‘game-changer’ in the domain of waste management and help realise the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi of a ‘zero-landfill India’.
