Water and Sanitation Lab


A water and sanitation lab is a facility dedicated to researching and developing solutions related to clean water access, wastewater treatment, dye effluent treatment and sanitation practices. This specialized facility is equipped for conducting experiments, developing sustainable solutions and analysing water quality, with a particular focus on addressing challenges related to dye adsorption and dye degradation in industrial dye effluent.

The Water and Sanitation Lab at PSG Institute of Technology and Applied Research is a specialized facility focused on research and innovation in the field of water and wastewater treatment and sanitation. The lab also collaborates with private organisations, and research institutions to ensure the water quality of nearby lake and provide remedial measures for maintaining.
