Nest Group Introduces Technology to Make Water Bodies Pollution Free

Kochi: Nest Group in association with Oceanaid Group, based in Japan, has developed a technology to make water bodies pollution free. The technology will soon be introduced in the water bodies in Kochi. The presentation of the technology was held here the other day.

N Jahangir, MD, Nest Group said that with the introduction of this technology, drinking water crisis in the State could be resolved. He said the nano bubbles generated through the technology could purify water bodies of even large size. The trial run of the project was carried out at Thevara-Perandoor canal and it was a great success. Jahangir congratulated all the members of team who made the project a reality. Masanori Yamada, Jun Kubo and Teppei Yamada, all members of Oceanaid Group and Japanese researchers, explained the functioning of the technology.

The nano bubbles discharged from the generator will have a magnetic power to attract the waste from the canals. This will separate the waste and make the water clean. The nano bubble generators can be operated at a very low power. Thevara- Perandoor canal can be cleaned completely if 20 units of generators are kept 400 metres apart. Prof. K V Thomas MP said that this technology could change the entire face of Kochi. He lauded the Nest Group for coming out with a project of social commitment.

Soumini Jain, Kochi Mayor, said this technology brings hope to the people of Kochi. Though Kochi Corporation takes initiatives to clean the canals, they never become fully successful, she said.

MLAs P T Thomas and Hibi Eden; Mathew Urumbath, KMA president, among others, participated in the function.
