Solar Energy Research Institute for India and the United States (SERIIUS)

The Indo-US consortium has developed the crucial prototype test loop that demonstrates the multiscale aspects of the supercritical CO2 Brayton cycle (s-CO2 ) at IISc, Bengaluru for development of high temperature concentrated solar power in the country.

Water Quality Technologies

  • Deployment of a mobile RO unit: DST has supported quick deployment and demonstration of a mobile water purification unit developed by CSIR-CSMCRI for producing potable water for drinking. It was demonstrated in Latur, Marathwada region which was facing severe scarcity of drinking water during year 2016 drought period

  • Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) based plasma system for portable water purification: A technology developed at CEERI Pilani through support by DST’s Water Technology Initiative (WTI) for Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) based plasma system for disinfection has been successfully transferred for commercialization to Turners Pvt. Ltd. Jaipur.
