  • 1) Small and medium scale industries in India do not have or have obsolete technologies for waste water treatment. They do not have access2) Only 30% of wastewater of residential complexes in cities are treated3) Existing solutions in the market aim at a minimum of 0.5 MLD of waste, 1 MLD at a potential cost of 12 million dollarsSmall and Medium Scale in India produce millions of gallons of wastewater per dayUntreated wastewater from these flow to the river bodiesIn absence of recycling process, the industries have a downtime of 4-5 months a year due to lack of water
  • Canopus India was formed in November, 2009 as a wastewater management company through innovative technology solutions

  • 1. LOCUS
    Innovative solution for Wastewater Treatment
    Manoj Kumar Mandelia
    FounderCanopus India
    “The next world war will be fought over water” - Steven Solomon
  • 2. Introduction
    Canopus India is a start up at its seed stage, germinated at the backyards of IIT Kharagpur.
    Founded by Manoj Kumar MandeliaB. Tech Dual Degree, IIT Kharagpur and co founded by Mohan YamaPh.D. IIT Kharagpur and Prateek Kumar Jain B. Tech Dual Degree, IIT Kharagpur .
    We offer special expertise in Water and Effluent Treatment and other Environmental Technology, Water and Waste Minimization.
    Extensively covered in many Indian newspaper and magazines
  • 3. Need for Wastewater treatment
    Low Volume
    High Volume
    0.01-0.05 MGD generated by Small &Medium Enterprises
    26 million such enterprises
    5 MGD of wastewater
    discharge by large industries
    Above 1 MGD big players enter
    Typical cost $1 million
    (10 Billion Gallons per day generated)
  • 4. Market
    Sector wise distribution of wastewater
    Our target market will be those companies or sectors that have some or all of the following characteristics:
    • Industries shut down due to acute shortage of water
    • 5. seeking for technical expertise and low cost, small volume wastewater management
    • 6. seek to obtain ISO 9001 status in the ensuing years
    • 7. been targeted by Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), India and State Pollution Control Boards
    • 8. Equipment manufacturers who want to do products and seek technical expertise
    • 9. Equipment manufacturing firms who want to expand and scale up
  • Business Verticals
  • 10. Our Solutions
  • 11. Our Uniqueness
    We attempt to subdue the cause – limit generation of large volumes of wastewater by optimizing the manufacturing process
    We see value in waste – by studying the process, we try to analyze possible means of recovery of by-products of commercial value
    We innovate in the design, and give multiple options for the client to select
    We help equipment understand their business verticals and streamline operations
    We help bridge gap between R&D institutions & industrial needs through product development
    We do end to end product development through collaborations with our technical expertise
