Boson Whitewater, a water utility company that converts sewage treatment plant water into high quality potable water, has been selected for ‘India Water Pitch-Pilot-Scale Start-Up Challenge’ by the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs (MoHUA). 

Boson Whitewater is among the 76 startups selected for the challenge from across India to work in the field of water supply, used water management, water body rejuvenation and ground water management. 

Founded in 2011 by Vikas Brahmavar and Gowthaman Desingh, Boson Whitewater converts water from STPs into potable high quality water that can be used for household purposes, centralised air conditioning in commercial buildings, and even for drinking. NABL certified lab reports indicate the water is drinkable, the company says.

“As cities grow and population increases, we need to find technological solutions that can help us manage our water resources more efficiently. At Boson Whitewater, we believe that wastewater has a great potential to reduce urban water stress. This recognition further strengthens our commitment towards improving our water infrastructure and creating water abundance in our cities,” said Vikas Brahmavar, Founder and CEO, Boson Whitewater System. 

Boson Whitewater converts water from sewage treatment plants into high-quality potable water that can be used for household purposes, centralised air conditioning in commercial buildings, and even for drinking.

Boson Whitewater created a scalable business model supported by viable technology to make a massive impact on the water infrastructure in cities. It is the first company to bring viability in the Circular Economy for Decentralised Wastewater Treatment in India.

The company's future goal is to create water abundance in cities. It believes in creating a solution that will help people move away from water scarcity.

Through the Boson Whitewater system, apartments can now convert their excess  STP treated water into high quality potable water. This water is then supplied to nearby industries and commercial establishments for centralised air conditioning, laundry, and for housekeeping purposes.

In February, BOSON Whitewater said it has racked up funding of Rs 3.45 crore from Indian Angel Network and angel investor Nagaraja Prakasam. 

The Bengaluru-based platform said it planned to use the funds to ramp up its network across the state, expand team and setting up of a water delivery infrastructure.
