On July 12th 2016 the US Consul General for India, Craig Hall, visited our academic partner, Jadavpur University, in Kolkata. Along with many members of our team, Dr. Amit Dutta and Prof. Joyashree Roy explained ECAR operations and the impact it will have on communities throughout India. The Consul General was impressed by the effectiveness, efficiency, and affordability of ECAR in removing arsenic from groundwater. He plans on visiting our 10,000L/day pilot plant operating at Dhapdhapi, just outside of Kolkata, in the near future.
