Arsenic water prone regions to get Finnish cure
Helsinki: India's arsenic water prone regions will get solution by Finnish Water company. The government has sought services of Kemira major Finnish water chemistry company to solve arsenic water related problems.

Aija Jaitunen, municipal and industrial general manager of Kemira told, "We have been asked by India's ministry of rural development to start a pilot scheme to solve the problem of arsenic water in India."

The company is building a water treatment chemicals manufacturing unit called Kemira Indus-Coagulant Manufacturing at Vishakapatnam, which is set to become operational by the beginning of 2013.

To begin with, the company has identified seven states in India – Bihar, Jharkhand, Assam, Manipur, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Manipur, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal as major arsenic water-prone regions.

Kemira is among a host of Finnish companies that have ventured into the business of clean energy and technology and values India as a market with huge potential.

"Kemira has technology for water desalination plants focused on reducing operating costs and energy consumption," Jaitunen said.

The company's technology for removal of arsenic from water includes oxidation and sedimentation, coagulation and filtration, adsorptive filtration and membrane filtration.

"People are used to using ground water as the primary source of drinking water and tube wells are well accepted," Jaitunen said.

He, however, added that demand for water in India as well as in China is more for agriculture than for municipal (drinking) and industrial needs. Kemira is among 100 Finnish companies that are operating in India.

In 2010, it signed a 51-49 percent joint venture pact with Hyderabad-based engineering and construction firm IRVCL to supply chemicals to the latter's water treatment plants.

"Once our Vizag plant starts next year, we will start exporting from there to other countries as well," Jaitunen said.

An over two billion-euro company, Kemira was originally a chemicals manufacturing major that later shifted focus to clean water technology.

It marked its first success in clean water technology with a lake restoration project in Finland in 2002, when it successfully chemical treated lake Kirkkojarvi. The lake's water is now clean enough to drink directly.
