Water treatment solutions provider Daiki Axis Japan is setting up its second plant in India at Haryana with an investment of Rs 200 crore, a company official said.
The plant with a capacity to produce 1,000 sewage treatment units with Japanese "Johkasou" technology is coming up in Palwal, Kamal Tiwari, CEO of Daiki Axis India, told PTI during an interaction.
Daiki Axis India is a subsidiary of Japan-based Daiki Axis Japan.
The facility will be operational by September 2023, he said adding a unit that is already functional in Vapi, Gujarat.
The Gujarat unit, which has a capacity to produce over 800 sewage treatment plants, was commissioned in 2019, Tiwari said.
The company is eyeing an increase in its customer base with the setting up of the new unit.
The product can be used in both industrial, commercial and residential segments. The company has a team to assist customers in the installation of the units, he said adding the technology is already in use in various states, including Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, and Delhi.
The CEO further said India and Japan recently signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) for wastewater management through Johkasou technology.
He said "clean water and sanitation is the key to the survival of people and the building up of a healthy nation. The government is taking several initiatives to achieve this goal. The MoC will be a game-changer in the implementation of the Jal Jeevan Mission, Swachh Bharat Mission, and Sustainable Development Goals and provide wastewater treatment to remote areas."
