  • 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
