Haryana CM inaugurates Daiki Axis India’s Johkasou Plant at Palwal

Haryana Chief Minister Shri Manohar Lal today inaugurated a Johkasou plant at Palwal launched by Japanese water treatment solutions provider Daiki Axis India, a 100% subsidiary of Daiki Axis Japan. With a capacity of 1,000 Johkasou units per year, the plant is equipped with Japanese 'Johkasou' technology, used for treating and reusing domestic wastewater. Rs 200 crores were invested in setting up this sewage water treatment plant in Palwal. The system is suitable for treating both grey and black water.

Recently a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) was signed between PM from both the countries in March this year to implement the Johkasou technology and concept in India. Daiki Johkasou-STP technology offers a unique combination of long shelf life and simple maintenance while offering high treatment performance. The small and mid-size packaged plants are fully automated and do not require full time operators.

India currently treats only 34% of domestic wastewater. In 2019, a policy to treat waste water was introduced by the Haryana government, according to which 80% of the waste water will be treated and used by 2030. As a way of mitigating the freshwater crisis in the state, the Haryana government has laid out a policy on treated wastewater. However, technological intervention is essential for addressing this challenge. It will also require skill sets, experience, and handholding to make the policy successful. Thus, the Haryana government has collaborated with Daiki Axis India Pvt. Ltd. to enhance its water conservation plan by reusing and recycling domestic wastewater across the state. With over 60 years experience and 20 lakh global installations, Daiki Axis is an expert in decentralised wastewater management and Johkasou technology.

The project aims to address the state's sanitation, environment, and water issues, as well as generate investment, circular economy, employment, and capacity building among users.

Speaking about the launch, Honorable CM, Manohar Lal said, " Water is life and the most exquisite gift of nature. Water is a precious resource, and we should make a collective effort to conserve it. This sewage water treatment facility is a ground-breaking move in the right direction towards ensuring that water can be recycled and reused for a variety of purposes. Currently, it is being implemented in Palwal but will be extended across the state once we evaluate its effectiveness."

In the same vein, Shinya Takaoka, Director & Managing Executive Officer, Daiki Axis Co. Ltd. Japan, said, "In terms of natural resources, India is one of the wealthiest countries in the world. However, increasing domestic, industrial, and agricultural demands have resulted in water shortages as well as polluted water supplies across the country, especially in Haryana, which faces a severe water shortage. Through our STP plants, we intend to create a water-positive India and contribute hugely to environmental sustainability. With our Johkasou-equipped plants, we hope to provide a long-term solution for wastewater treatment needs across the state."

Hiroshi Ogame, President & CEO of Daiki Axis Co. Ltd., Japan, said, "Palwal's Johkasou plant offers one of the best wastewater solutions in areas without adequate sewage infrastructure. This advanced wastewater technology has significantly transformed the environment of Japan over the years by treating 26% of liquid waste. Through our Johkasou-equipped plants, India can learn from Japan's decades of experience deploying such solutions.”

Kamal Tiwari, Director of Daiki Axis Environment, said, "Daiki Axis India is committed to providing the best wastewater treatment solutions that can serve the Indian Government’s Sustainable Development Goals. Our company has already invested in setting up manufacturing units in Haryana under the Government's 'Make in India' campaign. We also aim to play a game-changing role in implementing the Government of India's 'Jal Jeevan Mission' and the 'Swachh Bharat Mission and providing effective wastewater treatment solutions to remote regions of India. Furthermore, the initiative will facilitate skill development as well as create ample employment and business opportunities for countless youths”.

Also, we have a vision of establishing such plants in every state in India. We are already in the process of developing models for South and East India," he added.
