Absolute Water is a green tech water company based in New Delhi which transforms sewage waste into safe drinking water, as per WHO standards. They use specially bred worms as the first part of the filtration process to remove micropollutants. During the second process, the water is filtered through completely organic and inorganic media, such as pebbles, sand and woodchips which makes the water safe to use in agriculture. A final stage uses an advanced non-chemical treatment to create drinking water. Absolute Water is providing a solution where waste is transformed into value.
