  Arsenic is chemically similar to silicon under flooded conditions (like in rice paddies) that it becomes easily transported into the plant. The FDA found that basmati rice had one of the lower concentrations of arsenic ( micrograms per 1 cup cooked vs. micrograms per 1 . An overview of sustainable techniques used for arsenic removal from drinking water in rural areas of the Indo-Pak subcontinent Muhammad Luqman*1,2, Muhammad Mohsin Javed3,Abdullah Yasar1, Jamil Ahmad4 and Amin-ul-Haq Khan1 1Sustainable Development Study Center (SDSC), Government College University, Lahore 2Department of Microbiology, BUITEMS Cited by: 6.

  Read "A methodology for the sustainability assessment of arsenic mitigation technology for drinking water, Science of the Total Environment" on DeepDyve, the largest online rental service for scholarly research with thousands of academic publications available at your fingertips. Boerschke and Stewart: The Evaluation of Arsenic Mitigation Technologies Screening The formal screening of the technologies is based upon a decision matrix that integrates technical, social and fiscal criteria. The criteria are evaluated using recognized protocols, and when necessary, tailored to meet the specific needs of Bangladesh.

The level of arsenic was detected in a survey conducted by a local NGO in co-operation with Public Health Engineering Department (PHE) under the Bangladesh Arsenic Mitigation Water Supply Project in Observing the alarming situation, the GSK came forward and took up a project at the initiative of its Communication Manager Dr Ashok Kumar Roy. This two-year project has been an international partnership investigating the sustainable management of arsenic contaminated water and soil in rural areas of Latin America. The target zones are near Calama in the Antofagasta region of northern Chile and the province of south-east Cordoba in the Chaco-Pampean plains of Argentina.

Drinking water arsenic contamination has emerged as a big nuisance to public health and approximately million people around the world consume arsenic contaminated water, exceeding the WHO threshold of 10 μg/L. In Pakistan context, various arsenic mitigation initiatives were undertaken by different NGOs and government departments which were confined to one time measure and resultantly.

Monitor arsenic concentration at each entry point to the distribution system to ensure that the arsenic levels are now in compliance with the Arsenic Rule – assumes centralized treatment approach, not point-of-use treatment.

This concept note is designed to provide an overview on how the SASMIT (Sustainable Arsenic Mitigation) strategy was developed and can be applied for scaling-up safe water access in arsenic.

The wide spread occurrence of geogenic arsenic in Bangladesh groundwater drastically reduced the safe water access across the country. Since its discovery indifferent mitigation options tested at household and community scale have resulted in limited success.

The main challenge is to develop a simple, cost-effective, and socially acceptable option which the users can install, operate Cited by: The Green Remediation: Incorporating Sustainable Environmental Practices into Remediation of Contaminated Sites technology primer was developed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S.

EPA) Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI). The document was prepared in cooperation with EPA’s Brownfields and Land Revitalization Technology.

Institutional weakness in the Bangladesh government system is one of the major factors hindering sustainable mitigation of As contamination within reasonable timeframes and therefore, the current institutional structure cannot meet the demand of the community and was unable to reach large low income groups (Rammelt and Boes, ).

Solutions Cited by: Socio-economic and demographic factors, water and sanitation status, time spent and distance travelled to collect water, arsenic awareness, willingness to pay (WTP) for arsenic-free water, people’s trust in others and in institutions, social capital in communities, and preferences for sustainable arsenic-mitigation options were investigated.

many arsenic detection and test methods and small-scale arsenic removal technologies have been developed, field-tested, and used under different programs in developing countries. This short review of these technologies is intended as an update of the technological developments in arsenic testing, arsenic removal, and alternative water supplies.

The system boundary is defined by the geographical extent of the arsenic-affected community utilizing the particular mitigation option. In most cases such communities consist of approximately neighbouring houses and/or the area within m from the Cited by:. operating the fund through local post-offices and banks.

In some villages it has been found, that the villagers by themselves have been collecting fund almost since the commissioning of the plant. This success could be pioneer to many of the future development and mitigation projects of the Government. The act of constructing unprotected/unsealed wells to extract water from deep aquifers is a worrisome ongoing practice in most parts of developing countries of the globe.

The paper is first of its kind in exploring sealing technology as a potential mitigation measure to prevent arsenic contamination of deep aquifers. The technology has been assessed not only as a safeguard to potential Cited by: 2.Mohammed Hossain TRITA LWR PHD Cover Illustration.
