We were the first to introduce the state-of-the-art Euroair Air Purifiers that ensures pollution freehomes and today, we also market domestic electronic security systems under the brand „Eurovigil‟.The company has a strong R&D and manufacturing base including a network of water labs across thecountry named Aquachek. Aquamall, a wholly owned subsidiary of EFL, has the distinction of havingIndia‟s first „green‟ water purifier plant. (with LEED India Gold certification), at Dehradun, which is thejewel in our network of factories. It can manufacture a million water purifiers of various specificationsannually (it has the largest UV water purifier production capacity in the world), harness solar energyand harvest rainwater.In order to tap global opportunities, Eureka Forbes has tied up with another giant in the world of directsales - Lux International, Switzerland - in a joint venture, Forbes Lux, which now has a footprintacross several countries in Asia, Europe, Middle East and South America.For years together Eureka Forbes has become a name synonymous with selling but we pride ourselvesin going beyond selling. It is our firm belief that unpolluted water & air is the birthright of every Indianand with this vision we set up the Eureka Forbes Institute of Environment (EFIE). The institutepromotes awareness about conservation & management of natural water & air resources. Ourendeavours include Pollution Watch (a tie-up with a prominent national television channel to telecastair and water pollution levels in key cities monitored by the Institute), Euro Enviro Quiz (India‟s onlyenvironment-centric quiz for school children in association with over 450 schools across India), EuroAmbassadors (enthusing school children to enkindle the environmental spark in their homes andneighbourhoods) and Rainwater Harvesting (enlightening people on how to harness this preciouswater source in tandem with local bodies, co-operative societies and governmental institutionsresulting in over 600 million litres of rainwater being saved till date). „Project Jal Amrut‟ hasaugmented the water resources in drought prone areas through rainwater harvesting with the firstprojects being in Rural Maharashtra. The Euro School of Environment was set-up to formalize theeducation movement and give it a fillip. It began with a course on becoming eco-friendly citizens andhas since enhanced its curriculum.Our continuous endeavour to create a sustainable environment led us to introduce renewable energytechnologies as viable options to communities, providing sustainable energy to meet their energyneeds. This is because around 95,000 villages in India don‟t have electricity and 18,000 of themunlikely to ever have access to the national grid due to their remote locations. Eurodiya harnessessolar energy to light the home and is an alternative to kerosene and electricity, saving fossil fuels. Dueto its proximity to the equator, India receives an annual average of 4-7KWh per day for every squaremetre. This means that certain parts of the country receive more sunlight than what they can use in ayear, making it an abundant source of power. However, the challenge was to make the technologyrelevant for locations where the exposure to sunlight is limited and the electricity is a far cry. It alsohad to be inexpensive and within the reach of the common man. Eurodiya‟s novel technology andmodel design allow storing solar energy for a longer duration thus making it the value for money. Ourefforts got a fillip when India‟s first solar bulbs with the in-built solar panels were launched.Our goal of providing safe drinking water to each and every individual was credited extra miles withthe introduction of solar technology for running the water dispensing units. We will continue to work inthe field of renewable energy and other such green technologies. We look forward to working withNGOs, CSRs and other business partners in this endeavour.
Our most recent initiative in rural India has been striving to bring safe, affordable drinking water topeople at the bottom-of-the-pyramid and solution-based customised community water systems,generating non-agrarian employment and creating rural entrepreneurs. Involvement of the communityhas been the key and all our projects have been designed to empower communities with local watercommittees overseeing construction and maintenance of the projects, thereby ensuring theirsustainability over the long term. Every project has a health education component as people in theproject areas lack a good understanding of sanitary practices. Appropriate technology solutions havehelped tackle some dreaded water related diseases ignored for generations. There are more than 70reverse osmosis and 40 ultra violet water treatment plants in 35 rural and four urban communities. Apartnership with world Vision relies on providing water filter units during emergencies with over10,680 units being distributed to flood affected areas in over six states. A manually-operated filtrationunit for emergency use has been developed. Owned and run by women self-help groups, theygenerate revenue by charging for potable water provided to the community.The company has been a friend to society including providing safe drinking water to the earthquakeand cyclone victims as well as setting up parks for senior citizens where they can relax and recreate.Indeed, relationships spur us to dream of a happy, healthy pollution free world that is built on trustand lasting relationships with our customers.

India Water Desalination Market Set to Growth at 22% CAGR: TechSci ResearchIncreasing governmental support, industrialization and demand for fresh water to driveIndia water desalination industry in coming years.Globally 97.5% water is considered salty and remaining 2.5% is fresh water. It is estimatedthat currently 1.1 Billion people do not have access to safe drinking water and more thantwice that number without adequate sanitation. In India alone, more than 200 Million peopledo not have access to safe drinking water. The only solution to meet this growing freshwater demand is through Desalination. Desalination is the process by which salt and otherminerals are removed from saltwater and brackish water in order to produce fresh watersuitable for human consumption, as well as water for irrigation and industrial purposes.Water Desalination market in India has witnessed phenomenal growth in last three years.Seawater desalination is established to be a part of meeting a real water need in the mostcost effective manner.According to recently published report by TechSci Research “Indian Water DesalinationPlants Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2017” India water desalination market is all set togrowth at CAGR of 22% for next five years. India currently has 182 desalination plantsoperating in different parts of the country and it is anticipated to be over 500 by 2017. Themembrane based technologies are considered 23% cheaper for generating desalinatedwater when compared with thermal based due to which 85% plants in India are membranebased plants. Government support from centre and some states have contributedenormously in growing demand for desalinated water in India.Gujarat was once considered a water scarce state but the initiatives of the Gujaratgovernment under the leadership of its Chief Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, the state has themaximum desalinated water generation capacity in the country. Similar, governmentalsupport in Tamil Nadu has enabled the state to be the 2nd highest desalinated watergeneration state in the country, contributing 24% in total desalinated water capacity inIndia.
