Co-working Spaces

As part of our intent to create an ecosystem for addressing any kind of water problem, we offer co-working spaces to startups and emerging technologies. Saraya, Japan and VayuJal India are sharing workspace at ICCW.

  • Saraya Japan entered into an MOU with ICCW in 2020, to take AMRIT – a nonmaterial-based arsenic remediation technology – to Southeast Asia and Africa. Despite the pandemic, we have succeeded in executing a pilot order for household arsenic purifiers and are looking for funding to implement a pilot community unit.
  • VayuJal Technologies is an IIT Madras incubated startup, developing solutions out of atmospheric water generation. ICCW helped in the field validation of VayuJal’s first commercial product the 140 LPD AWG at ICCW, followed by the 440 LPD AWG at Taramani Guest House, IIT Madras both in 2019. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength and is now implementing “clean drinking water on tap” solutions for IT Parks, star hotels, schools, and residential complexes.
